It’s classic Sherlock Holmes: A maharajah’s treasure of staggering value… the British soldiers who stole it swore a blood oath of secrecy… and thirty years later, the consequences: death for those involved. 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 television hit Sherlock Holmes. Here, Charlton Heston (who played Holmes in the Los Angeles production of Paul Giovanni’s original play The Crucifer of Blood, on which this production is based) dons the sleuth’s signature deerstalker for this atmospheric thriller 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!
