CGiii Comment

A rambling mess of a film...
It's not a comedy...because, there is no humour. It's not a drama...because, it's too stupid.
Stephens is camper than camp and Wilder obviously lost the plot.


The(ir) Blurb...

Director Billy Wilder adds a new and intriguing twist to the personality of intrepid detective Sherlock Holmes. One thing hasn't changed however: Holmes' crime-solving talents. Holmes and Dr. Watson take on the case of a beautiful woman whose husband has vanished. The investigation proves strange indeed, involving six missing midgets, villainous monks, a Scottish castle, the Loch Ness monster, and covert naval experiments. Can the sleuths make sense of all this and solve the mystery?
