      I am reviewing The Case of the Singing Violin, 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 involved in a case of the supernatural! A man sets out

      to see Sherlock Holmes. Apparently his fianc keeps hearing the sound of a singing violin in her home.

      Her stepfather insists that there is to be no wedding, as he is going to take her to a mental hospital. Before he reaches Sherlock Holmes, he is murdered.

      As Holmes reads about the event in the newspaper, he suspects something amiss, and begins to investigate. He finds that the stepfather is the lone ...

      • survivor of a tea and spice business.

        He begins to come to a conclusion about several murders, and is determined to bring justice to the man. I really like this episode.

        For one, it involves the always fun occasion of Holmes disguising himself. The beginning is rather amusing as Holmes enters his flat, dressed up as a dirty sailor, and flings himself at Watson, who he harasses endlessly.

        At the end, he

        and Watson disguise themselves once again and go undercover as sailors, as they try to discover the whole tea and spice operation. Holmes makes a very believable scoundrel! Watson isn’t sure he likes this side to Holmes character.

        The two of them eventually risk their lives, but in turn, arrive at the truth! I highly recommend this episode. It is very enjoyable, humorous, and suspenseful.

        The game was definitely afoot in this episode!
