Editorial Reviews

The Legendary Sherlock Holmes squares off once again against his nemesis, the diabolically brilliant Professor Moriarty. Moriarty kidnaps the inventor of a new wartime bombsight, and threatens to sell the invention to the Nazis. England's fate hangs in the balance as Holmes and Watson must break a secret code of dancing men to stop the Nazis and rescue the inventor. The amazing colorization, created with a new cutting-edge digital technology, breathes new life into this already excellent film. Also included on this DVD is the original black-and-white version, beautifully restored as well. This is the definitive DVD edition of Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon.

Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, 1946 film

The film begins in Switzerland. Two men enter a café, and old man meets them to give them orders. They plan to steal a bombsight from Dr. Franz Tobel. [Did you notice the clue?] Will the spies be fooled by an impersonation? Can they be flown out of the country at night? They arrive safely in London. Mission accomplished? There seems to be some trickery here. [Or a lack of security?] What is Dr. Tobel drawing? Who is after him? Holmes explains his deductions. The bombsight is tested on Salisbury Plain [it looks like the western desert of the USA]. Will it revolutionize aerial bombardment? There are scenes of London. Dr. Tobel wants to work independently without unwanted attention. The bombsight is composed of four parts, each one produced at independent workshops. [Are all telephone calls monitored by a government agency?]

When Dr. Tobel goes missing Sherlock Holmes looks for him while disguised. Holmes finds a person who knows something. Will he walk into a trap? Will Moriarity eliminate Holmes at last? Or will his plot fail? There is a trick to raise the writing from an impression on the paper beneath. Can they decipher the code? What if the men named are dead? "What is the name of the fourth man?" Holmes figured out the trick. Will Moriarity? Who has the better plan? "A keen observation." "You've played into my hands." Will Lestrade and Watson arrive in time? Will Moriarity fall into his own trap for an ironic ending? [What about the sequel?]

In the fourth film in the Rathbone Sherlock Holmes series, the good detective and Dr. Watson are pitted once again against the forces of evil once-again threatening to destroy England. What is the meaning of these dancing men...?

Legend Films has gone a great service to the classic film lexicon by preserving and updating this treasure from World War II Britain. After all, Secret Weapon stands out as being one of the few Holmes tales set in the contemporary era, as opposed to some alien, Victorian past. To what end you might ask? Why, to challenge the greatest villains in history, the Nazis, of course. And now, the great detective does so in full color for the first time.

Yes, the plot leaves a little to be desired (having been scantily influenced by Doyle's original writings) and so do the production values, but fans of Holmes will appreciate the "Easter egg" references and cameos buried within. I challenge you find one in particular, a tiny reference to Holmes' cocaine use. '

As is typical with Legend Films releases, the DVD contains both the colorized and the black and white versions of the film, so that you can appease both the kids and the staunch traditionalist in your house.

A classic must have for Holmes fans. The B/W version has audio issues and does not seem to be "cleaned up". The color version has been fully restored and looks good with good audio.
