Tuesday's Overlooked A/V: Brett's Holmes

We had thought to head out to the islands today but the winds put the kibosh on that idea. So we may head out to the movies, which reminds me it's time for Tuesday's overlooked films or in this case, television. With all the attention being given to the new Sherlock and the Guy Ritchie Holmes, it's well worth reminding folks of my fave version of the detective's adventures starring Jeremy Brett. Absolutely wonderful. If you're unfamiliar, do find yourself the DVDs or the stream and treat yourself.

And if you like things a little lighter, there's always Brett's fine turn as Freddy in My Fair Lady.

Be sure to check out the full range of suggestions for your audio/visual pleasure over at Todd's.

Try the (!) Russian television version of the series sometime. It is pretty fascinating. (I saw a couple on MHz Worldview some years back.)

That sounds fascinating -- I shall have to look for it.
