Henry Daniell

Moriarty will you never learn??? That’s right Moriarty is in this film. Someone is murdering women in London. Sherlock Holmes is brought into the case and soon discovers the trail leads to hypnotists and a woman.

There have been a few actors who have played the role of Moriarty. So far, I’ve liked all the men in the classic films who have taken on the role of this classic, Sherlock Holmes villain. In this film, Henry Daniell is Moriarty. That’s Daniell in the above photo. I don’t care for Andrew Scott as Moriarty in Sherlock Holmes with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Andrew Scott is a fine actor, however, I don’t like the way he portrays Moriarty. I’m sure my opinion on Moriarty is going cause a few eyebrows to be raised, but I hope you still love me.  🙂

I’ve read the classic stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I know Moriarty’s fate, however, in these classic films he dies again and again. I have seen him die several times.

Have you read the classic Sherlock Holmes? Do you know Moriarty’s fate???

Let me know your thoughts on the actors who have taken this role in film.


I love Dr. Watson!  🙂
