A treat for Sherlock Holmes fans: Charlton Heston defies a fatal curse as the great sleuth. A maharajah's treasure... the British soldiers who stole it and swore a blood oath of secrecy... and, 30 years later, the consequences: death. Is the treasure cursed? Or is a very human murderer at work? Only one man can unravel the mystery: Sherlock Holmes. The master of deductive reasoning has been one of film's most durable characters from the silent era through the 2009 hit Sherlock Holmes. Here, Charlton Heston (who played Holmes in the Los Angeles production of Paul Giovanni's original The Crucifer of Blood play) dons the sleuth's signature deerstalker for this atmospheric puzzler adapted and directed by Fraser C. Heston and steeped in romance (Dr. Watson falls in love!), supernaturalism, subterfuge and cunning twists. The game is afoot!
An impenetrable mystery leading back to the heart of India plagues the legendary detective in this capable and original production.
