    A Study in Terror
    In A Study in Terror the ever popular Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr. Watson search for the Victorian serial killerJack the Ripper in this well-made and exciting mystery produced, written and directed by James Hill. In this adaptation of the popular character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Holmes (John Neville) aided by Dr. Watson (Donald Houston) and his brother Mycroft (Robert Morley) are called in to help catch the crazed killer of prostitutes. This film combines all the elements beloved by fans of Sherlock Holmes resulting in a satisfying and well-acted mystery. John Neville is good as the cool, logical Holmes and Robert Morley adds a nice dash of humor to liven up the story. A Study in Terror is highly recommended for fans of Sherlock Holmes and should be enjoyed by any viewer who loves vintage mysteries. ~ Linda Rasmussen, Rovi

      Sherlock Holmes vs Jack the Ripper - enough said!

      • My Best Buy Premier Silver MemberElite Plus Member

      The first film matching of the obvious - Sherlock Holmes and Jack the Ripper. It would be done again in "Murder By Decree" almost as well, but this version has excellent acting - John Neville is a wonderful Holmes, and Anthony Quayle is always enjoyable - oddly enjoyable jazz scoring and a terrific pace. Sadly, there are no extras, and the "horror" makeup is so bad the actress has to hold it in place at the end of the film!

      This is a older movie that we have not seen and was delighted when I was able to purchase it from BestBuy, at a good price, so my wife and I can watch it anytime we want.
