Sherlock Holmes

[some missing footage and reconstructed titles]

1
Life is infinitely stranger
than anything which the
mind of man could invent.
We would not dare con-
ceive the things which 
are mere commonplaces
of existence.

2
We will fly over London
- the vast whirlpool where
eddy the conflicting forces
of good and evil.

3
   A little forgotten
 thoroughfare in Limehouse -
the most mysterious quarter 
     in all London.

4
Moriarty - genius of evil
- whose powerful mind
has never worked except
for gain or destruction -
and in whose heart the 
blood is as cold as a 
corpse.

5
There are no secrets 
between Moriarty and 
Bassick, his chief lieu-
tenant in crime.

6
"Cut him down."

7
"Now go out and tell the
 others what happens when 
 they disobey me."

8
Let us look in 
on one particu-
lar case.

9
"Inspector Gregson speak-
 ing. Put me through to Dr.
 Leighton, St. John's College,
 Cambridge."

10
  Far from Limehouse
Moriarty's ominous shadow
reaches even to the study
    of Dr. Leighton, 
     in Cambridge.

11
"- - Inspector Holt reports
 that there is no doubt
 Prince Alexis is responsible
 for the theft of the Athletic
 Funds."

12
"We are anxious to
 avoid a scandal and
 the Prince's arrest
 would - -"

13
"You can't go on with
 this - you should know
 that I am innocent."

14
"If the money is not re-
 turned to Dr. Leighton
 by twelve tomorrow,
 you will arrest Prince
 Alexis."

15
"Watson, it's more 
 preposterous than we
 imagined - - I'm to
 be arrested for the
 theft of the Athletic
 Funds."

16
"It's serious, I tell you
 - Scotland Yard claims
 to have found the empty
 wallet here in my
 room."

17
"It's really appalling,
 Watson! I'm due in
 Switzerland tonight - -
 Rose has arranged
 everything for our
 marriage."

18
"There's a fellow in my
 year, - Sherlock Holmes
 - he might help you - a
 marvel at digging out
 things - rather uncanny
 - he -"

19
Sherlock Holmes, the future
detective, whiles away his
working hours in country la-
nes, entering philosophical
observations in his notebook.

20
"That old shutter must
 have broken. Are
 you all right?"

21
"That's Alice Faulkner -
 sister of the girl Prince
 Alexis is going to marry."

22
"It's the Prince I want to
 speak to you about - he's
 in a devil of a fix and 
 you're the only one who
 can help him."

23
"Where did the Scotland
 Yard man find the empty
 wallet?"

24
Otto - valet to
Prince Alexis - -
one of Moriarty's
many agents.

25
"That's Rose Faulkner -
 the girl the Prince is
 going to marry."

26
"I - I didn't know anyone
 was here - that is - I mean
 - I'll call and see you 
 later."

27
"Were you by any
 chance looking for
 this cuff link?"

28
"Wells never called
 here before - - I
 hardly know him."

29
"It's easier to know
 Wells is guilty than
 to explain how I know
 it."

30
"It doesn't matter who I
 am - I know that you
 stole that money. Go to
 99 - report to Moriarty
 at once -"

31
"You're a weak fool - if
 Scotland Yard gets you,
 they'll grind you for all
 you know about Moriarty."

32
"Bassick!"

33
"I can't explain any
 more, Bassick - - tell
 Moriarty that Wells is
 on his way to now - - to
 99 - -"

34
"This man Moriarty sent me
 to Cambridge. He wanted
 me to meet important people 
 - to play his game later."

35
"You stole the money to get
 away from Moriarty and
 thinking the Prince's in-
 fluence would protect him,
 shunted the theft his way!"

36
"You mean to say that this
 man Moriarty can really
 do these things - - and
 Scotland Yard can't reach
 him?"

37
"Pick Wells up at 99 
 - I'll come there."

38
"Don't risk it - he's a
 fiend - for God's sake
 don't go in there!"

39
"Do what I tell you and
 everything will come
 out all right."

40
"There's a queer duck
 outside asking for you."

41
"My name is Sherlock Holmes.
 I - I am a student - a student
 of life. Its complexities fas-
 cinate me - Wells told me
 about you - and I -"

42
"As a student of life,
 haven't you grown
 slightly careless of
 life?"

43
"I merely wanted to
 know you a little
 better."

44
"Several Scotland Yard 
 Inspectors tried that. Their
 lifeless bodies were found
 floating in the Thames."

45
"Oh! - Well, of course, if
 you're as difficult to know
 as all that, I'd better be
 getting back to my
 microbes."

46
"I fear no one - to-
 morrow Wells will be
 found at Cambridge - a
 confession in his pocket
 - a bullet in his brain -
 to all appearances a
 suicide."

47
"Have you never read
 the Chinese legend
 of how the clever fox
 was outwitted by the
 stupid hare?"

48
"You have seen me for
 the first and last time
 - now be a good little
 boy and go back to
 your books."

49
A tragic event brings
Count Von Stalburg,
the Prince's uncle, sud-
denly to Cambridge.

50
"I am glad you see the
 wisdom of this, your
 highness. Now that you
 are the Crown Prince -
 such an alliance is
 impossible." 

51
 Meanwhile in
Switzerland - -

52
Rose Faulkner - who 
now faces a future of 
ostracism and disgrace
- waits for her lover.

53
"Here's Wells'
 confession!"

54
"Thank you very much
 - everything has been  
 satisfactorily arranged
 with Dr. Leighton by 
 my Uncle, Count Von 
 Stalburg."

55
"Oh I see - while he was
 the third son the mar-
 riage would have been
 possible. Now that he
 is the Crown Prince -
 it means for that girl -
 what?"

56
"It's a world of strange
 complexities, Watson -
 At the beginning of an
 hour I meet love - At
 the end - I meet most
 monstrous evil."

57
"I have just met a
 man - a force - a
 thing - as deadly as
 sin itself - I -"

58
"I've been groping for
 my place in the scheme
 of things - I've found
 it. My life's work is to 
 rid the world of that
 gigantic menace - -
 Moriarty."

59
At 221 Baker Street,
Sherlock Holmes found
a way to help the
weary and mystery-
laden.

60
"Ah, Doctor - marriage
 must be a wonderful
 thing - this is your first
 visit in months."

61
"I see your wife is away
 - that you have resumed
 the practice of medicine
 - that you have an ex-
 tremely careless servant
 and that you've moved your
 dressing table to the other
 side of your room."

62
"Shoes badly cleaned -
 careless servant. You fairly
 reek of iodoform - you've
 re-opened your office.
 Second button on your
 waistcoat missing - never
 happens when your wife
 is at home."

63
"But how do you
 know I've moved
 my dressing table?"

64
"Face badly shaved on
 right side - used to be
 on left - light must come
 from other side. You
 couldn't very well move
 your window - must have
 moved your dressing
 table."

65
"Your Prince Alexis
 is a blackguard,
 Watson! He was mor-
 ally responsible for
 this girl's death."

66
"I say, Holmes, you
 are an odd chap, why
 have you kept that
 photograph all these
 years?"

67
"Oh, I don't know - there
 was a familiar - charm-
 ing something - about
 the eyes - that reminded 
 me of her sister - the
 girl I met on the road-
 side that day."

68
"I don't know what ever
 became of her. After
 her sister's death, I
 wrote, asking if I could
 be of assistance - but
 she never answered -
 I -"

69
Relentless and untiring,
Holmes has forced
Moriarty to dig deeper
into the earth.

70
Otto, the Prince's valet,
explains that unless they
get the Faulkner letters
in the next few days,
the chance of blackmail-
ing the Prince will be 
lost.

71
"You should have let
 me know sooner. I had
 great difficulty in loca-
 ting the Faulkner girl."

72
"Larrabee and his
 wife are upstairs."

73
"The Larrabees have the
 Faulkner girl out at
 Risley Towers. She was
 destitute, and accepted
 a position as secretary."

74
"The Prince and Von Stalberg
 went straight from the
 station to her former
 lodgings. It's a good thing
 you got hold of her."

75
"I've been through the
 girl's things and Mrs.
 Larrabee searched her
 - I don't think she 
 brought the letters to
 our house."

76
"You blundering fools -
 of course she has them
 with her - I told you not
 to let her out of your
 sight - now -"

77
At a hotel in London,
Princess Olga's repre-
sentative, Baron Or-
lonieff, confers with
Count Von Stalburg.

78
"It is most unfortunate that
 you have been unable to
 locate the Faulkner girl -
 and if those letters - are 
 not recovered..."

71
"We beg your indulgence
 a few days longer - The
 Prince is conferring with
 the eminent detective,
 Sherlock Holmes."

72
Prince Alexis keeps
  his appointment.

73
"Every time I think
 I've caught this extra-
 ordinary man, Mori-
 arty - he only leaves
 a little of his coat-tails
 in my hands."

74
"I am utterly at a loss
 to understand your
 refusal to help me."

75
"Moriarty's after some
 letters a girl named 
 Faulkner has - - the
 Larrabees have taken a
 house at Hampton Court.
 They've got the girl
 there."

76
"Tell Forman to get
 into that house in
 any capacity - work
 fast!"

77
"I've reconsidered.
 I'll take the case."

78
"I've just learned that
 Professor Moriarty is
 after those letters - this
 time I hope to trap him
 - and the letters will be
 the bait."

79
Risley Towers - recently
acquired by Mr. and Mrs.
James Larrabee - alias
G. Neville Chetwood,
Esq., the Australian finan-
cier and his charming
wife.

80
"The cook will show
 you your room."

81
"You don't understand.
 We treat the young lady
 with the utmost kind-
 ness - she is not right
 in her head."

82
"Tell 'im it's Mr. Sid
 Jones, Esquire."

83
"Moriarty says if you
 ain't got the letters
 yet, I'm to bring 'er
 down to 'im at once."

84
"Better see what he
 wants - if you don't
 it'll look suspicious."

85
"If he starts anything - 
 nail him!"

86
"My niece Miss Faulkner
 is not well enough to
 see anyone - she begs
 to be excused."

87
"How dare you give
 orders in my house?"

88
"How dare you pre-
 vent my seeing Miss
 Faulkner. You'd better
 send that card up - -
 Mr. Larrabee."

89
"It's a lucky thing
 for you I'm not
 armed."

90
"- when Miss Faulkner
 comes down, you can
 go and arm yourself."

91
"When I drop a book -
 go ahead."

92
"Who are you - what
 - what - do you want
 to see me about?"

93
"The moment I saw you, the
 years seemed to slip
 away - - recalling a
 memory very dear to
 me."

94
"You're wasting your time, 
 Mr. Holmes. I shall use
 those letters to make the
 Prince suffer as he made
 my sister suffer."

95
"Please don't think me 
 impertinent, but I know
 that revenge will only
 embitter your own life
 and in no way lessen the
 wrong that has been done."

96
"It's not revenge - it's
 justice - why should this
 man be considered?
 Why should he go un-
 punished?"

97
"I sympathise with your
 attitude but are you
 sure your sister would
 want you to do this?"

98
"- the kitchen's
 on fire!"

99
"Don't alarm yourself -
 there's no fire - it was
 a trick to make you
 show where you've hid-
 den the letters."

100
"Has it occurred to you
 that Scotland Yard is
 still in the same old
 place?"

101
"I can't take them - it
 wouldn't be fair - unless
 you give them to me
 of your own free will."

102
"If you're as wise as
 you used to be -
 you'll let that young
 lady alone - very
 much alone."

103
Moriarty again feels
 the menace of his
 great antagonist.

104
"It was a trick - the
 butler started that fire.
 The first thing to do
 is to get rid of him."

105
"O'Leary will do that
 job - the van will
 take the body to the
 river."

106
"I can't figure out
 why Holmes gave
 the letters back to
 the girl."

107
"I'll take care of the
 letters later. It's Holmes
 we must think of now."

108
"Holmes is setting a trap
 for me - go back to
 your house - don't touch
 the letters - wait for 
 instructions."

109
"It was extraordinary,
 Watson - seeing that girl
 again - made me almost
 forget my purpose - I
 wanted to take her
 away."

110
"But aren't you jeopar-
 dizing her for the sake
 of your own plans?"

111
"No - she is safe for the
 present - but her ultimate
 safety is absolutely de-
 pendent on the downfall
 of Moriarty."

112
"This man Forman
 you've left in the
 house to look after
 her - is he to be
 trusted?"

113
"Sherlock Holmes is
 gradually completing a
 chain of evidence that
 will reach to me as
 surely as I stand here.
 Something must be
 done!"

114
"221 Baker Street - we
 could make it secure
 three streets each way.
 Police decoyed - our
 men in every doorway
 - everyone in Holmes'
 house called out."

115
"Tonight I'll return that
 little visit Mr. Holmes 
 made me some years 
 ago. He has driven me
 into this den but I
 refuse to dig deeper."

116
Bassick obeys
 instructions.

117
"The trap was set for
 the clever fox - in it
 was found the stupid
 hare!"

118
"My dear Holmes, it's
 such dangerous work -
 why not give it up
 before it is too late?"

119
"By tomorrow night I
 will have completed the
 task I set for myself -
 the time will be ripe
 for Moriarty's arrest and
 the clearing up of over
 forty mysteries."

120
"Lord Dover speaking -
 sorry to disturb you -
 your office gave me this
 number - my wife seems
 worse - could you come
 over at once?"

121
"I really hate to let
 you go, Professor -
 but I realize you
 wouldn't call unless you
 were heavily chaper-
 oned."

122
"You've seen fit to reject
 my proposition -"

123
"- have you got that
 straight? I've sent the
 letter to Holmes and
 signed your name."

124
"- there's been a change
 in Moriarty's plans -
 come to the gas cham-
 ber at Stepney - fetch
 the Faulkner girl with
 you - hurry!"

125
"These loose bars
 should have been
 fixed."

126
"Can't you smell the
 gas? If you light
 that 'ere - you'll send
 us all to 'ell."

127
"Don't worry, Guv'nor
 - the other blokes
 we croaked ain't never
 got out."

128
"Safe - - abso-bloody-
 lutely! Every crack
 in the window, door
 and walls 'as been
 sealed."

129
"If something unfore-
 seen should happen -
 could you lock that
 door in a hurry?"

130
"There's hardly any gas
 now - - get a lamp.
 Holmes will suspect
 something if he sees
 this safety light - -"

131
"Why all the fuss -
 gov'ner - why not
 knock 'im on the 
 'ead?"

132
"My dear Craigin - you
 have no delicacy. I wish
 Mr. Holmes to be in full
 possession of those facul-
 ties that drove me into
 the earth - as I slowly
 drive him off it."

133
"- now you know
 what's going to hap-
 pen - it all rests
 with you."

134
"Charming place your
 new office, Larrabee
 - has great possi-
 bilities."

135
"Gas! - This room ex-
 plains why several
 gentlemen never re-
 turned from their
 week-end trips."

136
"Let us get down to
 business - Miss Faulkner
 has authorized me to
 sell these letters - - 
 and I -"

137
"It's Miss Faulkner I'm
 here about - I warned
 you not to lay your
 hands on her - and
 now -"

138
Moriarty utilizes 
every resource of
his vast machine.

139
"Mrs. Larrabee is going
 in Dr. Watson's house
 now. She'll signal if
 Holmes is there."

140
"I'm Mrs. Cadwell - I
 want to find Mr.
 Holmes - my brother is
 in great trouble and
 needs his help."

141
"I've been there - his
 house has been burned
 - I thought I'd find
 him here -"

142
"Don't let her pull
 up that shade!"

143
"It's too late, Mr.
 Holmes - the signal's
 been given."

144
"All right - Forman."

145
"Splendid woman!"

146
"I arranged the accident
 - Forman drove the taxi.
 It's the only way I could
 get in without being shot
 at from the house opposite."

147
"We've rounded up
 nearly all of Mori-
 arty's gang. But so
 far he has eluded
 us."

148
"Larrabee has turned
 King's evidence - at last
 I've got what I've been
 waiting for - a clear
 case leading straight
 to Moriarty."

149
"Call that four-wheeler
 on the corner - and
 bring a bag here at
 once."

150
"I'll write you from Paris
 - but there are a few
 things in the bag I'll
 leave with you."

151
"What's that at
  the window?"

152
"I'm going to miss you,
 Professor. Before we part,
 I want you to meet an
 old friend of yours - -
 Forman Wells."

153
"You don't think for
 a moment - that this
 is the end?"

154
"I had rather hoped
 so, Professor - I am
 starting on my honey-
 moon tomorrow."

155
"Marvelous - Holmes!
 Simply Marvelous!"

156
"Yes - Isn't she!"

THE END
