Quotes & Highlights

McCabe’s two previous adaptations of Sherlock Holmes material, Holmes and Watson and The Hound of the Baskervilles, were both Jeff-nominated in the Best Adaptation category.

Cast: Don Bender, Jerry Bloom, Linsey Falls, David Fink, Nick Goodman, Greg Kolack, Drew Longo, Brian Pastor, Ed Rutherford, Andrew Shapiro, Judy Lea Steele, and Shawna Tucker
