THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
1971, Universal, 98 min, USA, Dir: Anthony Harvey

This charmingly goofy, surprisingly romantic Sherlock Holmes iteration finds the famous duo in modern-day New York, with Holmes (George C. Scott) an obsessive paranoid and a female Watson (Joanne Woodward), a psychiatrist helplessly fascinated by the detective.
