It was the same in the good the bad and the ugly, the sound of the voice was not synchronised with the facial movement. Surely it would be a simple thing to fix. It is less than a second out throughout the film. Many great actors have played Sherlock. Does it invite comparison? I think so. Christopher Lee has a certain charisma but lacks mystery. For a 1962 film the filming is (apart from the synch) pretty good and acting fine. Moriarty is a bit theatrical. The plot is compelling and overall worth a watch.
