Murder by Decree 1979

From Amazon: Murder by Decree has the distinction of being not only one of the best Sherlock Holmes films, but one of the best pastiches (i.e., a Holmes fiction created by someone other than author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) featuring the late-Victorian Era detective. Christopher Plummer is very good as Holmes, and James Mason redeems the many mishandled screen portrayals of Dr. John Watson with a rare, insightful performance.

Murder by Decree Movie Review by Jarrod (7/14/2011)

'Murder by Decree' may well be the finest Sherlock Holmes movie ever made, and pits the legendary detective against the notorious Jack the Ripper, who is terrorizing the Whitechapel district of London, preying on prostitutes, and mystifying the police, who strangely do not want Holmes to get involved.
