Title: The House of Fear When a valuable pearl with a sinister reputation is stolen, Sherlock Holmes must investigate its link to a series of brutal murders. Holmes is recruited to escort the heir to a European throne safely back to his homeland after his father's assassination. When a gentlewoman is found dead with her throat torn out, the villagers blame a supernatural monster.
This comfort in the roles shows in the great performances on display in this film, one of the highlights of the series. A genuine mystery plot reminiscent of the Golden Age of mysteries, the central conceit of the film would easily belong in an Ellery Queen or John Dickson Carr novel, and does a lot to lift the film up. In it Holmes finds himself, for once, failing to save the man who comes to him for help. Even his attempts to bring the killers to justice are thwarted when their ship is instead wrecked in a storm. However, what most people remember it for is who his foes are in this — none other than the Ku Klux Klan. At the time Doyle wrote the story, the Klan were almost forgotten, and so he clearly saw no harm in appropriating them to serve as the villains of his tale. Of course, the Klan came back to infamy in the 20 th century, making the description of them in the story seem almost prophetic.
