This set does not contain subtitles or any DVD Extras.
This package contains 1 DVD for each movie, and each movie is broken into 2 parts as was done when they were originally shown on US TV as a 2 part miniseries.
All of the 4 parts are approximately 1 hour 32 minutes in length, meaning that the total run time of each movie is approximately 184 minutes.
The front cover of this DVD also implies that both movies are complete versions so they are presumably uncut in any way, but I don't know how to verify this because I've seen different run times given for cut and uncut versions. For instance, Madacy released these films separately on DVD in 2006 and gives slightly longer run times of 194 minutes, but I don't think that the video is digitally restored. Then in 2007 Madacy released this DVD package: Sherlock Holmes: Collector's Edition (Five-Disk Edition, Tin packaging)
These movies were filmed in 1991 and 1992, and Christopher Lee who plays Sherlock Holmes was 69-70 years old when they were filmed, so I want to make the point that we here have an older and slower version of Holmes rather than the typical younger character who is usually protrayed as being physically and mentally invulnerable. This Holmes feels his age and states that his powers are not as great as they used to be, and he is portrayed as being more human and fallible.Read more ›
