Billy Wilder’s output trails off notably from the early sixties onwards, but there’s much to enjoy in his ingenious 1970 evocation of the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Robert Stephens and Colin Blakey make an excellent Holmes and Watson, with Christopher Lee as brother Mycroft. Working with regular scribe IAL Diamond, Wilder puts a surprising emphasis on Holmes romantic life, mainly through his attraction to Gabrielle Valladon (Genevieve Page), but it’s the minor details, from a appearance of the Loch Ness Monster to a ballet sequence, that make The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes such an engaging curiosity for an admirers of the great detective.
