The Private Life of Sherlock HolmesA bored Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson head for Loch Ness in search of the missing husband of Gabrielle Valladon (Genevieve Page). The investigation proves strange indeed, involving six missing midgets, villainous monks, a Scottish castle, the Loch Ness monster, and covert naval experiments.Keywords:

Critic Reviews of "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes"Variety Staff VarietyAugust 14, 2007
It is in large part old-fashioned, in that it's mile-wide and ancient-history Sherlock Holmes, but it's also handsomely produced and directed with incisiveness by Wilder.Geoff Andrew Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
A wonderful, cruelly underrated film.Andrew Sarris New York ObserverSeptember 29, 2005
Wilder's second most underrated masterpiece.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
Before the movie is 20 minutes old, Wilder has settled for simply telling a Sherlock Holmes adventure.Don Druker Chicago ReaderJanuary 01, 2000
Affectionately conceived, chock-full of marvelous subtleties, this meticulously constructed adventure-romance shouldn't be missed.Vincent Canby New York TimesJanuary 01, 2000
The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes is comparatively mild Billy Wilder and rather daring Sherlock Holmes, not a perfect mix, perhaps, but a fond and entertaining one.Brian Orndorf Blu-ray.comSeptember 27, 2014
Holmes is an extremely amusing and engaging picture, taking care of all the expected detective work as it offers a few surprises of its own.Noel MurrayJuly 22, 2014
The plotting is weak, and ill-served by the movie's generally lackadaisical approach; but the dialogue is witty, and Wilder and Diamond get a lot of mileage out of the idea that Sherlock Holmes is as fragile as he is brilliant.Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible CelluloidAugust 18, 2008
This existing version is still fascinating, funny and clever.Kim Newman Empire MagazineDecember 30, 2006
A true evocation of the spirit of the Strand Magazine, this is the best Holmes movie ever made and sorely underrated in the Wilder canon.
