Trivia

This production was produced by the Williamstown Theatre Festival as a stage play. It was filmed for television by A&E as one of their 'A&E Stage' attempts to support arts and cultural performances. Unfortunately, the melodramatic acting style that works in a 600-seat theater didn't translate well to the media of television, particularly in close-ups. See more »

Superb!
9 February 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

Frank Langella plays a wonderful version of the supersleuth, making him both more aloff, and more human at the same time. It is easy to see why this play has been a hit since 1899. The dialogue sparkles, the jokes are really funny, the sets are ingenious, and the ending is - to say the very least - completely unexpected. Wow!

If you think Basil Rathbone, or Jeremy Brett make a good Holmes, then you ain't seen nothing yet. Frank blows them out of the water and claims the role for himself.
