The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother

Having spent decades living in the shadow of his renowned sibling, the brother of Sherlock Holmes finally gets the chance to shine when he is called upon to solve a case of stolen identities and secret codes. Written and directed by Gene Wilder (who also stars), there is an unmistakable influence from Wilder's old friend Mel Brooks, not to mention reliable back-up from his stable of actors (including Madeline Kahn and Marty Feldman).
