Either I am getting old, or Arther Conan Doyle can really twist a story . . . . Oh, all right, both may be correct. But I've seen enough murder mysteries that I can usually tell very quickly who the bad guys are and how it will all wash out in the end. But this time I was totally flabbergasted at the masterful ending. I was dead wrong in my assumptions, and along with Watson and Inspector Lestrade, totally surprised by the ending. And I've just gotta tell ya, this movie made me an Arthur Wontner fan - he plays Sherlock Holmes masterfully. Spencer Tracy once gave some sage advice to a young actor (Burt Reynolds) whose passion was to be a great actor like Spencer Tracy. He told the young actor, "Never let anyone catch you at it," meaning that when you are acting a part, the audience should believe that you are the character, not an actor pretending to be the character. Arthur Wontner uses some looks and comments and gestures in this movie that display what must be his true personality - he is being himself as he plays the part. Genius acting that only the best can achieve.

Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn and drizzle plenty of warm melted butter on it and see if you can predict the ending before it happens . . . . I'm betting that you cannot!
