Holmes and Watson on the trail of the Borgia pearl, hastily hidden after its theft in a plaster bust of Napoleon, and simultaneously sought by the criminal's horrific henchman, the Creeper. Neill does his usual neat job on this adaptation of The Six Napoleons, with the atmosphere considerably enhanced by the introduction of the monstrous, silently prowling Creeper. Rondo Hatton, who played the part, suffered from a rare glandular deformity and became a sinister horror movie heavy before his disease killed him in 1946.
