Editorial Reviews

This set collects three different takes on the master sleuth, Sherlock Holmes. First comes Billy wilder's The Private Life Of Sherlock holmes - chronicling the first time Holmes falls in love. Next up is the lauded 1959 British version of the Hound Of The Baskervilles, with Peter Cushing as Holmes and Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville. Lastly, is the marvelous Holmes parody, Without A Clue, which supposes that Holmes was a fictional character devised by his chronicler Dr. Watson (Ben Kingsley). When would-be clients clamor to meet Holmes, a desperate Watson hires an unknown actor (Michael Caine) to portray the Great Detective.

For some, Sherlock Holmes is a character open to interpretation, while to others there is The Canon and the "real" Sherlock Holmes. This three-DVD boxset collection is definitely those who don't mind a silly Sherlock and don't insist on staying close to Doyle's original stories.

The collection contains three films, each with a very different take on the Great Detective. Aside from the grim looking Holmes on the box cover, only one of the films is an adaptation of an actual Doyle story, and two of the films are actually quite light-hearted in nature with one being an out-and-out spoof. All three films are quite good on their own right for those who enjoy variety in their Holmes.

All three films are available individually. The three films are:

The Hound of the Baskervilles - This 1959 film is the first Holmes movie in color. This is the Hammer Horror version of the classic tale, featuring Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes and Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville. Hammer films pumped up the gothic elements and added some tarantulas here and there, but ultimately Cushing delivers a surprisingly good Holmes and that is what makes this one worth owning.

The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes - The original 1970 film of Billy Wilder's light-hearted look at what went on between the stories barely survives, due to heavy studio editing that chopped his vision of four different aspects of Holmes' private life into two. This DVD attempted to reassemble as much of the intended film as possible, but too much of it is lost to time.

There is some confusion the the reviews that I am seeing for this set. I received the Blu Ray set of Sherlock Holmes(2009) and Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows(2011).
Both of which are enjoyable movies in my opinion, though I have no experience with the earlier books or the novels.

The three Sherlock Holmes films included here are a mixed bag. But they are all theatrical releases of a fairly high quality. And if, like me, you are more a connoisseur of Watson than Holmes, these films will be a treat. They have three different takes on Watson, two of them predating David Burke, and none of them fools.

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1959)
Peter Cushing is a fine Holmes, if a little too smug in his deducing. Cushing went on to play Holmes on television to better effect. This Hammer movie casts another horror favorite, Christopher Lee, as Sir Henry Baskerville. Andre Morell is a solid, if rather stodgy and dull, Watson. That may make him close to the way Doyle intended him. The story deviates from the true, and it's all rather stage-bound. Still, it's marginally preferable to Jeremy Brett's dreary version, even if it's nowhere near the quality of Basil Rathbone's. This is the only film in the set that is done without its tongue in its cheek.

THE PRIVATE LIFE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES.
Billy Wilder's spoof has its tongue sticking out at times. Robert Stephens, and excellent actor, comes across as an effete Holmes. Colin Blakely's Watson is a marvel. He's played for laughs, but he's no buffoon. Blakely does a masterful job of limning a funny Watson who nevertheless is a serious character. And Christopher Lee makes his second appearance in this set, this time as Mycroft Holmes(though Robert Morley, if available, would have been a better choice). The movie isn't perfect. And -- a bit of a spoiler -- Wilder ends his movie ends on a rather sour note instead of the smile he would have gotten by reprising Clive Revill's ballet impresario for a bow at the end (which was one of his options).

We all know Robert Downey Junior by his movies in the MCU franchise, starting with Iron Man and continuing through most of the Avengers-related movies. But were you aware of his starring role in a Sherlock Holmes movie franchise with Jude Law as his Dr. Watson? For pure acting chops, I would say this latter franchise is a better showcase of the skills of Mr. Downey than any of his Marvel movies. This package contains the Blu-Rays of both movies, complete with the standard special features such as trailers, cast interviews, etc...... though neither film has an extended cut.

The first movie takes place at the close of the 19th century, and the 2nd one picks up at the beginning of the 20th century. Both films have a similar style and feel, in dialogue, settings, cinematography, action, costume design and mood. Hence they can be watched separately or together, and the 2nd film, Game of Shadows, can be viewed before seeing the first one. Both films are essentially action mysteries, with a touch of comedy, a dash of tragedy, and just a hint of romance. Both films also feature ensemble casts, with multiple protagonists and antagonists, male and female. Unlike the BBC series featuring Benedict Cumberbatch, these movies rely less on witty dialogue, and engage a lot more action... In a way, this is a more complete Sherlock, as they show a detective well-skilled in various martial arts, which is true to the books. Like the BBC series, the plots of both movies focus heavily on political intrigue; with the first movie focused on domestic (UK) intrigue, whereas the second movie is set on the international stage of Europe before WWI.
