Sherlock Holmes is a 1932 American Pre-Code film starring Clive Brook as the eponymous London detective. The movie is based on the successful stage play Sherlock Holmes by William Gillette, in turn based on the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, and is directed by William K. Howard for the Fox Film Corporation. Brook had played Holmes three years previously in The Return of Sherlock Holmes.

Reginald Owen plays Dr. Watson, and Ernest Torrence is Holmes's arch-rival, Professor Moriarty. Reginald Owen played Sherlock Holmes the following year in A Study in Scarlet. Owen is the first of only four actors to play both Holmes and Watson — Jeremy Brett played Watson on stage in the United States and, most famously, Holmes on British television, Carleton Hobbs played both roles in British radio adaptations, while Patrick Macnee played both roles in US television movies.
