They Might Be Giants 1971 DVD (Region One Playable in North America – The US, Canada, Mexico, etc.) Widescreen. Color.
Starring: George C. Scott, Joanne Woodward, Rhue McClanahan, Jack Gilford.
Former judge Justin Playfair (George C. Scott) lost his wife a few years back, and ever since he's thought he's Sherlock Holmes, determined to find his arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty, in this thoroughly charming tale of madness and romanticism. Playfair (er, Sherlock) is about to be committed by his brother, who wants his money, when by serendipity he's teamed up with psychiatrist Dr. Mildred Watson, no less (Joanne Woodward). She finds him fascinating, being a bit daffy herself, and together they get involved in various intrigues, mostly aimed at evading the medical authorities, but which allow the two to fall in love.
A one-of-a-kind lark with a few more puzzles than answers and which resonates long after its deeds are done.
