The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother- 1975, directed by Gene Wilder, starring Gene Wilder, Madeline Kahn, Marty Feldman, and Dom DeLuise
Maltin says- Wilder's first film as a writer-director-star is mild spoof of Sherlockian adventures, as Sigerson Holmes becomes involved with music-hall songstress Kahm, a damsel in distress. DeLuise, as a hammy opera star, adds film's liveliest moments. Listen carefully for vocal cameo by Mel Brooks. Made in England. 2 and a half stars.
I say- Not Wilder's finest work. Rather bland, and very slow. The jokes seem forced, and the acting is played comically instead of seriously, which does not lend itself to the quality. 1 star.
