Horrible acting by all. Every actor has done much better work, but this is almost laughable. For Holmes' fans, a big disappointment. The only plus is the beautiful Charlotte Rampling, but even her acting is so melodramatic that I'm sure she wishes to forget this stinker.
Example of this stinker: Holmes deduces a moved photograph via fine dust marks, which he somehow sees before he reaches the desk where the picture should rest.
Most modern protrayers have abandoned the clichéd calabash pipe, but here it makes an unwelcome appearance. For those who have not read Holmes.... he never smoked a calabash pipes in any of the stories.
