I liked the story very much, but I wished that the description would say that it was a silent movie. WARNING TO ALL MOVIE WATCHERS:
This movie is a silent movie. It is created in the 1920s. Be warned

Barrymore is fine as Holmes, and a good cast includes Roland Young as Watson and William Powell in a small role as Wells, not to overlook later gossip columnist Hedda Hopper- and it's a hoot to see early 1920s London footage and sets - however, these folks have little to work with, as the screenplay by William Gillette is a poor adaptation of Doyle's writings: (1) Holmes takes a wife at the end??? (2) Holmes swears his life mission is to rid the world of arch-enemy Moriarty, and then meekly and unreasonably lets him go when Moriarty (not a hired gun) sneaks into the Baker Street apartment intending to do Holmes in? (3) the all-important blackmailing letters are all but ignored after being handed back and forth without reason for doing so? Furthermore, the production is seriously underlit, although the images may have been damaged due to the nitrate composition (decomposition) over the years. Anyway, be glad it was preserved with Hugh Hefner's money but don't expect the voice of Doyle.
