Temptress of Pleasure – or Mistress of Murder?
From Her LIPS – Poison That Bred MURDER!

Sherlock Holmes investigates when young women around London turn up murdered, each with a finger severed. Scotland Yard suspects a madman, but Holmes believes the killings to be part of a diabolical plot. —J. Spurlin

Based on Conan Doyle’s The Adventure of the Empty House, this “Sherlock Holmes” entry finds Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) trying to solve the case of the “Finger Murders”. Several beautiful women have been found slain, all with their right forefingers severed from their hands. The police are prepared to write off the killings as the work of a madman, but Holmes deduces that there’s a sane motive behind it all. Sure enough, the trail of evidence leads to Holmes’ perennial nemesis Professor Moriarity (Henry Daniell), who is in league with lissome female criminal Lydia (Hillary Brooke). Though it isn’t sporting to reveal Moriarity’s nefarious scheme here, it can be noted that The Woman in Green comes to a nail-biting conclusion as a hypnotized Holmes wanders precariously along the ledge of a penthouse!

Synopsis: Spoilers?
Synopsis – The Woman in Green The story began with a Commissioner’s meeting concerning the deaths of various individuals and their inability to solve these horrible crimes. Because of unsolved crimes, Commissioner Gregson decides to call in Sherlock Holmes; I put my pride in my pocket and went to see the man that so often helped out Inspector Lestrade and myself in the past, Mr. Sherlock Holmes. Four women murdered in various parts of London, each woman from a different walk of life in a different area of the city and each with the right forefinger surgically removed. Holmes examines the body of the fourth victim in the morgue with Inspector Gregson. Holmes notes the only clue so far is the manner in which the fingers were surgically removed, meticulous, and cleanly. They retire to Pembroke House for a drink. At the bar of Pembroke House discussing the murders with Gregson, Sir George Fenwick and Sherlock Holmes acknowledge one another, each with a nod.

Plot: Spoilers?
When several women are murdered and their forefingers severed, Holmes and Watson are called into action, but Holmes is baffled by the crimes at the start. Widower Sir George Fenwick (Paul Cavanagh), after a romantic night at the apartment of Lydia Marlowe (Hillary Brooke), is hypnotized into believing that he is responsible for the crimes. He is certain that he is guilty after he awakes from a stupor and finds a woman’s forefinger in his pocket. His daughter comes to Holmes and Watson without realizing that Moriarty’s henchman is following her. She tells Holmes and Watson that she found her father burying a forefinger under a pile of soil. She has dug up the forefinger and shows it to them.

Fenwick is then found dead, obviously murdered by someone to keep him from talking. Holmes theorizes that Moriarty, who was supposed to have been hanged in Montevideo, is alive and responsible for the crimes. Watson is then called to help a woman who fell over while feeding her pet bird. He leaves, and minutes later, Moriarty appears and explains that he faked the phone call so he could talk to Holmes. When Moriarty leaves, Watson returns. Holmes explains what Moriarty did, notices that a window shade that was shut in the empty house across the street is now open, and tells Watson to investigate.

Inside the empty house Watson, looking through the window believes that he sees a sniper shoot, Holmes, in his apartment. Holmes then appears at the house and explains that he put a bust of Julius Caesar there because of the bust’s resemblance to his own face (Holmes realized that as soon as he sat there, Moriarty would have him killed). Inspector Gregson takes the sniper, a hypnotized ex-soldier, away, but the sniper is kidnapped and later killed on Holmes’s doorstep.
