  • Cast: George C Scott, Joanne Woodward

The suggestive relationship between Sherlock Holmes and Watson is taken to its logical conclusion as the characters are transposed to 1970s New York for a romantic comedy of self-delusion, in which Justin Playfair/Holmes (Scott) has a psychotic disorder and Dr Mildred Watson (Woodward) is his psychiatrist. Dated but enjoyably quirky psychobabble comedy held together by two great leads.
