Holmes has been hired by Mrs. St. Clair (Eleanor David), a completely different wife, to find Neville St. Clair (Clive Francis), a completely different husband. This one disappeared before his wife's eyes in that same sketchy part of town, and she suspects he was murdered. The prime suspect in this murder is a well-known London beggar, the titular man with the twisted lip.
I thought his makeup was pretty cool, looking just amateurish enough to be believable for the period.

Holmes and Watson are in their usual attire for most of the story. Grey suits, white shirts, nothing special.

Also, Mrs. St. Clair had some lovely clothing, especially this cream ensemble.
