Head cocked to the left, partial deafness in ear: first point of attack. Two: throat; paralyze vocal chords, stop scream. Three: got to be a heavy drinker, floating rib to the liver. Four: finally, drag in left leg, fist to patella. Summary ...
During the bare-knuckle fight scene, Holmes gets a cut on his left lower lip. There is blood from it on his shirt when Watson comes to get him to meet Lord Blackwood before the execution. In the next scene, when Holmes and Watson are on their way to the prison, there is no sign of the cut on Holmes lip. Yet it is clearly visible in the prison scene that follows.
The Warner Bros, Village Roadshow, and Silver Pictures logos appear in cobblestones on a London street.
