The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes

A 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.

The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
CRITICS OF "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes"
Geoff Andrew

February 09, 2006

A wonderful, cruelly underrated film.
Vincent Canby

January 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.
Kim Newman

December 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.
Brian Orndorf

September 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.
Variety Staff

August 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.
Roger Ebert

October 23, 2004

Before the movie is 20 minutes old, Wilder has settled for simply telling a Sherlock Holmes adventure.
Jeffrey M. Anderson

August 18, 2008

This existing version is still fascinating, funny and clever.
Andrew Sarris

September 29, 2005

Wilder's second most underrated masterpiece.
Noel Murray

July 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.
Don Druker

Affectionately conceived, chock-full of marvelous subtleties, this meticulously constructed adventure-romance shouldn't be missed.
