Sherlock Holmes The Pearl of Death


Look at its

bloodstained history.

Think of all the

misery's it's brought

to the poor wretched who

lay greedy hands on it.

Alexander Borgia died,

twisted and

black from poison.

Carlos of Spain became

a dribbling madman,

a disastrous jewel Digby.

The world would be

much better off if

it were sunk in the

ocean from which it came.

Oh really Mr. Holmes

we'd hardly treat

a national treasure

in such a

cavalier fashion.

If you'll kindly open

the case inspector.

Certainly sir.

There, all snug and safe.

You call that safe?

I've told you

Giles Conover's

after that pearl.

Under the circumstances

wouldn't it be better

to place a guard over it?

It has a hundred

guards over it

at this very moment.

Well my eyes

must be failing me

I don't understand.

What's to prevent

anyone from smashing the

glass and pinching it?

Would you like to

try it Doctor Watson?

I certainly would.

Don't bother

smashing the glass

I'll open it for you.

Now there help yourself.

Mr. Digby?

Don't be alarmed Bates

merely a demonstration.

May I have the

pearl Doctor?

What again?

That allays your fears

I trust Doctor Watson?

If you'll step into my

office gentlemen

I'll explain to

you what happened.

How does the thing work?

Electricity, The high

priest of false security.

As you'll have

noticed gentlemen

we are well protected.

Every article in this

museum is so placed

that its removal

creates a contact.

Very ingenious.

Tell me Digby just

where in the building

is the control of this

ingenious electrical

safety device?

The wires are

in this room.

Naturally they're

not exposed.

Well naturally.

Well Watson I think our

usefulness here has ended.

Goodbye Digby.

Goodbye Mr. Holmes.

Proved to be

most interesting,

thank you very much.

Goodbye Mr. Digby.
