Sherlock Holmes - The Case of the Greystone Inscription

The Case of the Greystone Inscription is the 16th episode of the 1954-1955 TV series Sherlock Holmes starring Ronald Howard as Sherlock Holmes and Howard Marion-Crawford as Dr. Watson. Aired on 31 january 1955 on MPTV (USA). Black & White. 27 min. The story is somewhat like The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual with some inventive details, the plot is quite faithful to the original story. At the beginning, Watson is bad-tempered, and we soon know why (see the V.R. on photo below) which is a very humorous scene. Millicent Channing comes to consult Sherlock Holmes because her fiancé John has disappeared. John has recently been absorbed in his historical study, believing that he has made an important discovery. All that Millicent knows about it is that John was planning to see Sir Thomas Greystone. She tells Holmes about her visit to Greystone Castle, where she was received coldly by the Greystones, and was told that they had never seen John. Holmes proceeds to John's flat to look at his research papers, and he finds a copy of a historical inscription that he then takes with him to Greystone Castle. There, he finds the Greystone treasure that the Greystone were looking for and wanted to keep rather than to give it back to the Royal family if the news was spread.
