While Holmes and Watson (in disguise) are serenading Sigerson near the climactic scene, the bow of Sherlock's violin is screwed too tight, making the wood of the bow convex. Although nowadays early music specialists do use this convention in imitation of baroque players, in Holmes' time it would be the sign of an amateur, inexperienced violinist. See more »
The Foreign Secretary, Lord Redcliff!
[rehearsing what to say under his breath]
Your Majesty, being inside of your confidence is the greatest joy I've ever known. Ahem...
[handing him the document]
Lord Redcliff, the fate of England is now in your hands.
Your Confidence... being inside of Your Majesty is the greatest single joy I've ever known.
[realizing what he's said, he tosses the document away]
It's alright, Your Majesty! I've got it! I've got it. All's well that ends well!

Its been years since I saw this movie, but I am still over-awed by the the amount of comedic talent in this movie (Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman, Leo McKern) and how utterly unfunny it was.
This is a movie that is filled with such lame jokes and cheap shots that it is actually depressing to watch.
What's the worst is that this movie has such a promising premise (Sherlock Holmes has an incompetant younger brother who is obsessed with outshining his older brother), and it goes down in flames almost from the get-go.
