Sherlock Holmes
John Barrymore stars as the famous British detective Sherlock Holmes in this mystery drama. With the help of his faithful assistant Dr. Watson (Roland Young), the sleuth comes to the aid of Prince Alexis (Reginald Denny) when he is publicly discredited by the evil Mr. Moriarity (Gustav von Seyfferitz). Carol Dempster and Hedda Hopper are part of the all-star cast. The hard-drinking Barrymore made the film in between his stage performances of Hamlet.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"While Barrymore has the profile and the intent, intelligent focus we recognize, this is a Holmes mystery without the deerstalker cap, the Meerschaum pipe or the faithful Watson at his side."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Turner Classic Movies Online
"Certain to disappoint any real Holmes fans out there."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
