ELEMENTARY, MY DEAR WATSON: The Man Behind Sherlock Holmes
Reality Entertainment Sherlock Holmes is without doubt the most famous detective in print and on film. He has been with us for generations and his stories are constantly remade and retold. He became more widely known than his author, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and thousands even believe he actually existed as a real man and lived on Baker Street in London. But there is another character in the stories that is often neglected and misunderstoodDr. Watson. What is the secret of this seemingly unassuming man? Where did the influences used by Doyle come from? Is Watson a mirror to elements of Conan Doyle himself? The contemporary world of Sherlock Holmes was one of great change and hope and yet also filled with war and fear. Did these influences help to form the plots and characters created by Doyle? Bonus Feature: The Madness of Sherlock Holmes (a 75 minute feature). 120 min.
