By including this disturbing scene, the audience is pulled into the film, losing all ability to look away when their favorite character of Victorian England could potentially die. Whereas in the book, Stapleton supposedly died on the Grimpen Mire due to a multitude of environmental difficulties (228-229). Holmes, Beryl, and Watson walk through the Grimpen Mire, looking for Stapleton; however, instead of finding the murderer, they found Sir Henry’s missing boot and the area where Stapleton kept his fatal hound (228 and 229). Dr. Watson even reiterates the event through the following words: “Somewhere in the heart of the Grimpen Mire, down in the foul slime of the huge morass which had sucked him in, this cruel and cold-hearted man [Stapleton] is forever buried” (229). The book and film are both concluded in a practically faultless way, but Attwood, who knows his audience’s emotional cravings, was able to captivate the viewers’ attention in a suspenseful, but ultimately incredible
All of these reasons prove why Sherlock Holmes was not guilty of killing Dr. Grimesby Roylott. Since Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson were at the Stoke Moran Manor to find out what had killed Julia Stoner the day before her wedding. When the snake had jumped onto Dr. Roylott, it killed him. Even though Sherlock had made the snake do this act of terror by lighting a match, therefore startling the snake, Sherlock did not want neither the snake nor Dr. Roylott to die. Sherlock Holmes was not known as a killer; he thought of himself that way when this occurred.
Not to mention he loves and feeds on the intellect and excitement of a new case. Using this information of Sherlock Holmes, I was able to draw parallels between Sherlock and Temperance Brennan. At the age of fifteen Temperance and her nineteen year old brother were deserted by their parents and left by themselves. Temperance’s brother left her and moved across the country. Although Sherlock had a family, they were quite distant from each other, so Sherlock was essentially alone in the world like Brennan.
When remembering Holmes’s murders, Larson writes that Holmes “removed [his] apron and rolled down his sleeves… He stoppered the chloroform, found fresh cloth, and walked down the hall to Pearl’s room” (148, 149). His actions are calculated and concise, revealing to readers that everything he does is planned with thoughtful precision and nothing he does is spontaneous.
Holmes renovated the inside of that lot in order to satisfy his sadistic needs and turn it into a “Murder House.” This building contains secret passages and disposing methods. Most of the people whom Holmes killed were his past spouses. He would secretly manipulate these women so that they would marry him. This made them easy targets because they would’ve never expected Holmes to perform these horrendous acts of torture and gore. Once the disappearance of some of his victims began to be known he flees to Pennsylvania where he believes that he would be able to reside until the heat of the story cools down.
Dastardly as Tarleton's actual behavior was, it pales in comparison to that of The Patriot's Colonel Tavington. There is no evidence that Tarleton executed wounded Continentals, nor that he killed women and children. The British had a very practical motivation for not killing their Continental captives, as it would invite retaliation against British prisoners. The Waxhaws Massacre occurred in the heat of battle and was exacerbated by the intense animosity between Tories and Whigs. In an interview, Gibson acknowledged, "Some of the worst crimes were committed between the Loyalists and the Rebels, the colonists themselves."
The Hound of the Baskervilles is set in the town of Devonshire in the Baskerville Hall, the home of previously murdered Sir Charles Baskerville, on the foggy moor filled with mysteries and people of unknown backgrounds. When the body of a well-known, widely-liked, man is found, Sherlock Holmes is the first on the case. With his assistant Watson narrating, the reader is in a position in which being in the mind of the genius is not the case. Through Watson’s point of view, Doyle uses red herrings to disrupt reader’s theories and threads as to who murdered Sir Charles Baskerville. The most repetitive red herring is found in the title of the book, the ferocious, menacing hound.
Henry got up with a new mindset as to how he was going serve out the rest of his time. Like the old man said, the better he followed orders and conducted himself, the better off he was going to be. He had to make it through this in order to return to his family whole, not broken and beat down; he needed to be able to properly support his family. He was physically weakened, from the days of hard work, and no appetite. Henry tore into the slop like a starving hog.
Jewett explained earlier in the text that Sylvia “would have liked him vastly better without his gun,” but while Sylvia sat in that tree her eyes and mouth became that same vessel. She could decide to climb down and tell the hunter where the bird and its mate nested, killing them, or she could keep their secret and allow the two creatures to live. If she told the hunter, she would have been just as bad, if not worse than him. The forest trusted her enough to bring her to the top of the tree, so could Sylvia hold as much power of the gun in her hands as the hunter could while killing the heron? This was where Sylvia made her final decision, and one that will change the course of her life and what she views as truly
