Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace ★★½ Sherlock Holmes Und Das Halsband des Todes; Valley of Fear 1962

Once again, Holmes and Watson are up against their old nemesis Moriarty. This time, Moriarty wants to get his hands on a necklace stolen from Cleopatra's tomb. Not only does Scotland Yard not consider him a suspect, they seek his advice. Enter Holmes and Watson, and the game's afoot. The offbeat casting and direction help make this one of the odder versions of Conan Doyle's work. 84m/B VHS, DVD .
