This film seems a bit and undeservedly overlooked for some reason. I saw it on tape a long time ago. Wasn't it in color though?

Internet Movie database lists it as colour,

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059764/

Plus look at the goof lists, always good for a laugh,


Anachronisms: In 1888, they sing a song "Ta-Ra-Ra Boom-De-Ay!" which is composed by Henry J. Sayers in 1891.


Anachronisms: In 1888 they sing "Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer" to the tune "Cwm Rhondda" which was not composed until about 1905, and had its first public performance in 1907.


Crew or equipment visible: In the scene in which Annie Chapman visits Chunky in the slaughterhouse, the shadow of the camera is projected on the actors and prop pork pieces.

A great Holmes/Ripper film, it's actually in colour (lurid Eastmancolour) with some great set design by Alex Vetchinsky. And Frank Finley plays Inspector Lestrade 14 years before he played him in Murder by Decree. A bit misleading "and uncovers a plot involving top politicans and royalty" as there's no Royal involvement unless you want to count a Duke and his two sons. One of my favourite Ripper films and definitely worth watching for Barbara Windsors turn as Annie Chapman and the gorgeous Edina Ronay as Mary Kelly.

Hi guys
The black and white info came from Teletext so could well be in error!

What did you people think of that? It made me want to go and read some Sherlock Holmes... Very loosely follows facts ofcourse (possibly more than any fiction I've seen on the case, and I expected that).

Missed it I'm afraid.

Someone put a link to Frankie Howard and June Whitfield doing J'Taime on the Jokes thread.....very funny,if you've not seen it yet....


Which led me to watch Up Pompeii!!for most of the late evening.....

Brilliant!

I do want to read original Holmes novel "Study in Scarlet" though.Just to see how close it comes to JTR.

Regards.
