Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace

Please choose a format above.

You might be forgiven for thinking that RiffTrax is intent on taking a huge dump on the reputation of Victorian England's greatest fictional detective, but in the unlikely event that you ever get around to watching the Will Ferrell movie Holmes & Watson, you'll realize that train has already sailed.

No, what we have here, as well as the first major example of transatlantic movie mockery, is the very British Sir Christopher Lee, taking time off from leading starship invasions to play Sherlock Holmes in a very German movie concerning the theft of Cleopatra's Necklace and—well, a lot of stuff, quite frankly. People die, things explode, cars crash. You won't understand it (even though it's been dubbed into English), but you definitely won't be bored.

So join the legendary Bridget Nelson and the fantastically available Matthew J Elliott, as they guide you through the hornet's nest of intrigue (and hornets) that is Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace!
