1985
Rating:
Not Available
The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes is a documentary film directed by Michael Muscal and hosted by Christopher Lee that chronicles and highlights the portrayals and adaptations of the one and only Sherlock Holmes, a character considered the most portrayed movie character ever. Christopher Lee shares the world of Holmes with a tour of London, such as the Scotland Yard and the River Thames, and a 1929 interview of Holmes’s creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Since his ‘birth’ in 1887, the logical and exceptional ‘consulting detective’ Holmes has appeared in print – four novels and 56 short stories, close to 211 on-screen adaptations, and a number of unofficial reprises. In honor of Doyle’s desire to create a reasoning detective with a combination of the sciences, The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes discusses what led to Doyle’s decision to write the first novel ‘A Study in Scarlet’ to the impersonations of his character by the likes of well known actors, Basil Rathbone, Christopher Plummer, John Barrymore, and Charles Brookfield. What is it about Sherlock Holmes that keeps readers enthralled and directors snapping at the bit to bring him to life on the silver screen? The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes does its best to enlighten you.moreless
