Dressed to Kill

Categories: [ TV/Cinema ]



Three cheap musical boxes (each one playing a subtly different version of "The Swagman"), manufactured in Dartmoor Prison, are sold at a local auction house. However, a criminal gang is determined to steal and recover all three. The first is stolen from a collector, friend of Watson's, murdered in the attempt. Sherlock Holmes is to late to prevent the theft of the second one, but manages to recover the third from the shop where it was re-sold. The maker of those boxes had stolen printing plates from the Bank of England and never revealed where he had hidden them before being arrested. Holmes discovers that a message is coded in the variations of the tune played by the boxes, and manages to decode it partly. The gangsters manage to steal the last box and manage to lure Holmes with a planted clue. Holmes escapses death and guesses the end of the message (the place where the plates are hidden, a small museum); Holmes and the police manage to catch the gangsters in the act.
