Young Sherlock Holmes (1985)


Fantasy/Adventure · 1h 49m · 12/1/1985

Before a lifetime of adventure, they lived the adventure of a lifetime.


What would have happened if Sherlock Homes and Dr. Watson had met as schoolboys? Why, the solution is elementary. Nothing but adventure! And that's just what director Barry Levinson (Diner, Rain Man, Bandits) gives us in this special-effects spectacular that sends the super-sleuth on his very first case! When a plague of bizarre, puzzling murders grip London, young Holmes and his new found friend Watson find themselves unwittingly entangled in the dark mystery. So, "the game is afoot!" And the budding detective is off on an adventure to solve the most amazing case of his most extraordinary career!
