Investigating the Jack the Ripper murders, Holmes lifts the veil of secrecy, corruption, and terror at the heart of the throne of England itself. Clue by clue, murder by murder, he discovers a conspiracy to protect the killer. Director Bob Clark (A Christmas Story) helms a jaw-dropping cast—Christopher Plummer as Holmes, James Mason as Watson, plus David Hemmings, John Gielgud, Donald Sutherland, and Genevi&eagrave;ve Bujold—in an obscure but worthy 1979 Holmes film. 2 hrs, 1 DVD. Mature audiences.
