The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976) - One Hundred Percent Entertainment

I watched this movie for the first time last week, and it's legit. On the DVD, the film's writer mentions in a Special Feature that it's a film about Sherlock Holmes rather than a Sherlock Holmes film. And that's about as perfect a description as I could think of. Just a fantastic drama/mystery made all the better by the presence of Alan Arkin and Robert Duvall. So good.

And it pleases/distubs me to see that Gene Shalit was doing this schlocky shit 30 plus years ago.

From the January 28, 1977 Newark Advocate.
