Will the Real Sherlock Please Stand Up?

from Victoria

In honor of the DVD release today, I thought it would be fun to play a game and identify the various actors who played Holmes over the years.

So I googled. And googled.  And googled.  There have been dozens of actors on stage, screen, television, and radio. I was thinking of these three:

Basil Rathbone

Jeremy Brett
And of course,  Robert Downey Jr.
But who’da thunk George C. Scott?
George C. Scott as Holmes-Patton
This one I definitely have to order from Netflix!!!
For more pictures and notes, see this article in the Independent.

  1. I haven't seen the Downey film so I am definitely looking forward to snatching the DVD off the shelf at my local Wal-Mart! I loved both Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett as Holmes. I've always been a big fan of the stories since I was a young girl.

    John Cleese as Holmes? Oh yes! MUST see this one!
