Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper
In 1888 London, Sherlock Holmes (Christopher Plummer) and Dr. Watson (James Mason) are asked by a citizen’s group to find and stop Jack the Ripper. For some reason the police don’t want Holmes to investigate. However he does and as the bodies pile up Holmes and Watson slowly uncover a trail that might lead to the highest reach of British government.

This was released and died VERY quickly in 1979. I’m probably one of the few people who saw it in a theatre. The critics almost unanimously praised it, it had a huge cast of good actors…but it just died. That’s too bad because this is a very good Sherlock Holmes film.

It’s atmospheric (LOTS of foggy streets), has exquisite production design and is beautifully directed by Bob Clark (I love the way the first murder is done–very effective). Also the acting is great. Plummer gives a very good, different interpretation of Holmes–he makes him more emotional than other actors have…but it works. Mason nicely underplays the role of Watson–he does not make him a bumbling fool like Nigel Bruce did back in the 1940s. In small roles Susan Clark, John Gielgud and especially Genevieve Bujold are excellent. Donald Sutherland, Anthony Quayle and David Hemmings unfortunately are not that good.

There are some problems with this movie though. It’s too long (a long sequence involving Watson and some prostitutes could have been completely cut) and is needlessly convoluted. Also they throw politics in the plot which seems out of place. And, strangely, Holmes’ deductive reasoning is almost never used. He comes across more as a protector of the people than a detective. Plummer’s performance though carries it through. It’s quite bloody too–not enough for an R rating but pretty strong for the PG it got back then (PG-13 wasn’t a rating yet).

Reservations aside though, I think this is one of the best Holmes’ film ever made. Recommended.

big names in here…
Can’t beat this cast: Chris Plummer (Sound of music), David Hemming (Blowup), John Geilgud (Arthur, Murder on the..), Donald Sutherland (Mash, Start the Revolution), James Mason(North by Northwest). All heavy hitters. Sherlock Holmes and Watson (Plummer and Mason) try to track down Jack the Ripper in old London. It kind of plods along. Sutherland is Mr. Lees, who may or may not be of any help in the case. Gielgud is the Prime Minister. Directed by Bob Clark. Also directed Porkys and Christmas Story. Interesting combination of detective work by Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, combined with several books on Jack the Ripper.
