The (very) great grandson of the master sleuth is trying to make it as a private eye, his mind filled with beautiful girls in dire straights who will be saved by his massive intellect. Unfortunately, great grandson Sherwood is not quite up to his illustrious ancestor Sherlock, a fact pointed out to him by the descendant of Doctor Watson. Thrust into a marvelous and complex murder mystery, young Sherwood tries desperately to rise to the occasion, but his brilliant solution is apparently no more than a humorous disaster. However, this great grandson still retains a bit of the classic brilliance attached to his name and, in an exciting and highly visual climax, he demonstrates the intent of the victim's last message and nails the culprit.
