Leave it to legendary funnyman Gene Wilder (Blazing Saddles) to write, direct, and star in an uproarious Sherlock Holmes mystery film spoof that goes far beyond the scope of elementary comedies. After spending decades living in the shadow of his more famous and successful sibling, Consulting Detective Sigerson Holmes (Wilder) is called upon to help solve a crucial case that leads him on a hilarious trail of false identities, stolen documents, secret codes and exposed backsides. Featuring an outrageous ensemble cast that includes Madeline Kahn (High Anxiety) as the seductive singer, Marty Feldman (Young Frankenstein) as Holmes’ bug-eyed assistant, and Dom DeLuise (History of the World: Part I) as an eccentric opera star turned blackmailer, this fun-filled caper packs a slew of clues and loads of laughs which The New York Times called “A Charming Slapstick Comedy”. Co-starring Leo McKern (Rumpole of the Bailey), Roy Kinnear (The Bed Sitting Room) and John Le Mesurier (The Italian Job).


Blu-ray Extras Include:

Trailers

"The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother," which opened at two theaters here yesterday, is a charming slapstick comedy that honors Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original creation...Mr. Wilder, always a fine, very straight comic actor, here makes an impressive debut as a comedy director."

"Gene Wilder joins Mel Brooks in that elusive pantheon of madcap humor, by virtue of Wilder’s script, title characterization and directorial debut, all of which are outstanding."
