Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The song sung by Regine in the film was specially composed by Stephen Sondheim.

    • The storyline of this film falls neatly into two sections - events leading up to Sherlock Holmes's arrival in Vienna, and events following his introduction to Sigmund Freud. The first section follows the equivalent scenes in Nicholas Meyer's pastiche novel very closely; the second section is almost entirely altered.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (1)

    • As shown in this film, Sigmund Freud was an expert on the effects of cocaine, and his researches into the drug won him his first great acclaim as a medical practitioner. Cocaine was a recently discovered drug in the 1880s and was widely believed by doctors to have an entirely beneficial effect. It was not until Freud published his extremely detailed researches into the effects of the drug that its dangerous aspects were recognised.
