The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes DVD, 8 Jun. 2009
This has to be one of the best films about Sherlock Holmes ever made,looking at the character from a totally different point of view.You see a depth of character,which gives clues as to why, for example, he never married.The film at times is very satirical, but never tries to make Holmes a comical figure. There are superb performances by Robert Stephens as Holmes and Colin Blakely as Doctor Watson.The supporting cast are equally first rate. You can't go wrong with a film directed by Billy Wilder, with music by Miklos Rosa,who elevates the film at all times, with dramatic, romantic and beautifully written scores.The DVD picture and sound quality is excellent.
