I do have a singular fondness for Basil Rathbone in his Holmes role.  He is the Holmes of my eager and impressionable youth.  He has, however, been nearly if not totally eclipsed by Jeremy Brett, the Holmes of the Grenada Productions...mostly seen via Public Broadcasting...which are impeccable.

Chief among my favorites is Brett’s “The Six Napoleons”.  Among other fine moments seen as the script plays out is perhaps the most moving moment of any Holmes production.  After the mystery has been solved the usually surly Lestrade steps up to Holmes and with the greatest sincerity reveals that the men of Scotland Yard did not begrudge him but were so very proud of his work, etc.  This catches Holmes completely off guard and the expressions that Brett performs showing how touched Holmes is...are priceless...quite a beautiful moment.

So, anyway.  I just chanced upon the episode in question again on uTube.  Always worth enjoying again.

I watched a few episodes and found them interesting. It is tough to purge the Rathbone from my mind as the quintessential Holmes. A few more episodes may make me buy in to this version though.

You’re not required to like Brett. Whatever you pick is perfectly fine. At least you’re not a Matt Frewer fan. What an abysmal mockery.

What a coincidence. Just after my post I stumbled on Frewer's version. I can't watch him and think of the movie, Honey I Shrunk The Kids.

Ahhh. Good recall. Me...I can’t get rid of his Max Headroom persona. When he does Holmes it just seems like some stupid comic playing Holmes...WRONG!

It’s actually surprising how many actors have done Holmes. Since his creation in December 1887, Sherlock Holmes has been played by over 75 actors including Sir Christopher Lee, Charlton Heston, Peter O'Toole, Christopher Plummer, Peter Cook, Roger Moore, John Cleese, Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Downey Jr.
