Russian Video: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Movie: Acquaintance)!


Do you like detectives? I love them. Every day when I am riding metro to work and back home I am reading detective stories. And if I don’t have a new one I think that I just waste my time in metro. But tastes are different and may be you don’t like detectives that much, but I am sure that you still love Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. And today we will watch the best screen version of his stories. How do I know that the movie is the best screen version that’s because when you visit museum of Sherlock Holmes in London on Baker Street on the second flour you will see pictures of all actors who’ve ever played Sherlock Holmes and the biggest portrait in the middle of wall is a picture of Vasiliy Livanov (who played Sherlock Holmes in this movie) and everybody (even cinematographers from Great Britain) admits that he was the best. So now we have a chance to watch a real story of real Sherlock Holmes.

Today we are watching a movie: Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (1979), First episode: “Acquaintance” (based on A Study in Scarlet and The Adventure of the Speckled Band).

    Thank you so much for making this tremendous movie available. As I am still learning Russian, the English subtitles were extremely helpful. My hope is that I will eventually see all of these fantastic renditions of Sherlock Holmes.
