Sherlock Holmes Debunked: The Seven-Per-Cent Solution + The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
Herbert Ross, Billy Wilder, 1976/1970
USA/UK | Format: 35mm | 239 minutes

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution
Herbert Ross | 1976 | USA | 35mm | 114m

Holmes (Nicol Williamson) and Watson (Robert Duvall) travel to Vienna where Holmes is treated for cocaine addiction and paranoid delusions by Sigmund Freud (Alan Arkin)—but the duo soon becomes involved in a kidnapping case with international implications. With Vanessa Redgrave and Laurence Olivier as Moriarty.

Followed by:

The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
Billy Wilder | 1970 | UK | 35mm | 125m

Cut down by 75 minutes, Wilder's passion project remains a glorious, playful episodic alternative take in which the master detective contends with romantic disappointment and the mystery of the Loch Ness monster. Robert Stephens is Holmes, Colin Blakely is Watson, and Christopher Lee is Holmes's brother Mycroft.
