Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) is approached by an American senator (Daniel Massey) to clear the name of a governess (Catherine Russell) in his employ, the lady having been accused of murdering the senator's wife (Celia Gregory) on his estate and leaving her body on Thor Bridge. Holmes and Watson (Edward Hardwicke) take their clues from a few markings on the bridge itself; the solution is among the most complex and satisfying of the Great Detective's career. An excellent episode from the Granada Television series, with Brett in fine form and acting opposite his one-time, real-life brother-in-law, Massey. --Tom Keogh

This movie is based on the story "The Problem of Thor Bridge" (1922) written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 to 1930).

Sherlock Holmes (Jeremy Brett) shows Dr. Watson (Edward Hardwicke) a letter he has received. Watson reads it:

"I cannot see the best woman God ever made go to her death without doing all that is possible to save her. I can't explain things, I can't even try to explain them but I know beyond all doubt that Miss Dunbar is innocent. You know the facts. Who doesn't? This has been the gossip of the country and never a voice raised for her. It's the...injustice of it all that makes me crazy. That woman has a heart that wouldn't let her kill a fly. Maybe I have a clue and don't know it. Anyway, all I know, all I have, and all I am are for your use if only you can save her."

The person who wrote this letter was an American gold magnate and senator Neil Gibson (Daniel Massey, Brett's real life brother-in-law at the time) whose "passionate" wife was apparently murdered. Miss Grace Dunbar (Cathy Russell), Gibson's governess, has been charged with the murder.

Gibson's wife's body was found on a bridge called "Thor Bridge" located about a half mile from Gibson's estate.

Sherlock and Watson investigate the murder scene on the bridge. The only clue is a small chip on one of the bridge's wooden railings directly across from where the body was found. However, as Sherlock states, this could have been easily made by anyone crossing the bridge.

Brett (as usual) does a good job in capturing the essence of the famous gumshoe in his performance. Massey as the gold magnate also gives a fine performance.

Finally, the props, costumes, background music, and cinematography are quite well done.

I still run into people who've never seen a Sherlock Holmes episode starring Jeremy Brett. How can one describe such a superior acting....it's been done before. It is the viewers loss that Jeremy Brett died before his time. However, we can be thankful that he left us such a legacy as the Sherlock Holmes series.

One of Doyle's best mysteries is well-served in this film, crackling with creative excitement.
