The Seattle Public Library says
The greatest Sherlock Holmes was Russian? Millions say: “Da!” Hugely popular in the 1980s Soviet Union, Vasily Livanov’s traditionalist Holmes, paired with Vitaly’s Solomon’s low key, winning Watson, are viewed by many as the definitive depictions of Conan Doyle’s works. See what you think in this remarkably faithful rendition of the most famous exploit of the world’s greatest detective. English subtitles throughout.

He’s the most enduring literary character of our age and a man of many disguises, of whom Watson once observed “The stage lost a fine actor… when he became a specialist in crime.” Hundreds of actors have been grateful for their chance to impersonate the World’s Greatest Detective on stage and screen; in The Many Faces of Sherlock Holmes we share a small but diverse sampling of these performances.

This film series is presented in conjunction with The Seattle Repertory Theatre, whose original production of Sherlock and the American Problem premieres on Wednesday, April 27. The American Wild West and Victorian England collide in this original adventure tale, written by R. Hamilton Wright and directed by Alison Narver. The year is 1887, the occasion is the Queen Victoria’s Jubilee, and the coincidences are suspiciously piling up. The creative team behind 2013’s hit The Hound of the Baskervilles is at it again with more thrills, more laughs and more unbelievable deductions.

April 11: YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES (1985)
April 18: THE SEVEN PER CENT SOLUTION (1976)
April 25: HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES (1981: RUSSIAN!)
