Murder By Decree

London, 1888. When Scotland Yard is unable to stop the gruesome rampage of Jack The Ripper, a citizens committee asks Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and his trusted associate, Dr. Watson (James Mason), to investigate.

But even if Holmes and Watson's remarkable powers of deduction can unmask the maniacal fiend, are they prepared to face the most shocking secret of all?Anthony Quayle, Susan Clark and Frank Finlay co-star in this masterful suspense thriller directed by Bob Clark that both fans and critics have called the most exciting and original Sherlock Holms movie ever made.

Critic Reviews:

  • “One of the more imaginative Sherlock Holmes films.” – Ozus' World Movie Reviews
  • “A fond homage to the heyday of Hammer Studio, and a canny transmuting of Victorian Britannia to the tail end of the politicized '70s” – CinePassion
  • “Plummer and Mason together make one of cinema's great – certainly the most touching – Holmes-Watson teams. Ripperologists will be pleased by how faithful the script is to historical incidents and persons involved.” –
