      I am reviewing The Case of the Shoeless Engineer, a Sherlock Holmes episode from the boxed set, Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Series 39 Thrilling Episodes. This series was produced by Sheldon Reynolds and filmed in France in the fifties. Ronald Howard, the son of actor Leslie Howard, stars as Sherlock Holmes, and Marion Crawford stars as Watson.

      This episode finds Holmes and Watson once again trying to enjoy a peaceful


      day in the country, only to find themselves wrapped up in a case. While in the country, an injured man approaches them, with an unconscious woman in his arms.

      The man’s name is Haterley, who runs his own business as an engineer. He explains to them that he had been hired by a man named Stark to do a job.

      The woman in question is the man’s housekeeper, who ...


      • had repeatedly warned him about the man. After finding out about the incident, Stark goes nuts and brutally beats both Haterley and his housekeeper.

        The two just barely escaped from the man in question, whom Holmes learns is in deeper trouble than they think. With the help of Lestrade, the three of them track the man down and dry to put an end to the problem.

        This episode is boring and

        drawn out. It is not interesting, and the acting is dull and dreary.

        Even Crawford and Howard seemed bored with this episode. It certainly isn’t a favorite of mine, nor does it leave an impression on my mind.

        It was hard to remember what this episode was even about. That tells you a lot.

        Don’t waste your time with this one. You’ll be glad you didn’t.
