Agreeable and charming Holmes film with continuous suspense and intrigue

This is a classy and effective romp with a strongly casting . Nicol Williamson as whimsical detective is top-notch , he’s in cracking form .

The stars have a splendid fight aboard a train towards the end ; plus , Holmes tries to battle his arch-enemy Moriarty but with an amazing final surprise . Although Basil Rathbone will be forever identified as Holmes ; however , here Nicol Williamson is also played as an intelligent , cunning , broody and impetuous pipesmoking sleuth but addicted to cocaine , his interpretation is likeness to Christopher Plummer (Murder by decree) or Peter Cushing and Jeremy Brett in television . While Dr. Watson isn’t a bumbling and botcher pal generally represented by Nigel Bruce , but a clever and astute partner magnificently incarnated by Robert Duvall .
Screenwriter Nicholas Meyer provides the original plot , creating the basis for this particularly storyline .

The film boasts a beautiful cinematography by Oswald Morris and a haunting score by John Addison . The motion picture sparkles with polish and wit and the ending results to be as exciting as moving and being well directed by Herbert Ross .
A Highly Enjoyable Mystery/Adventure
It is almost an accepted rule that very few adaptations or even pastiches manage to capture the original source material. The Seven-Per-Cent Solution is the rare exception to the rule. Not only does it work as an adaptation of a novel (though it has some significant changes) but as a pastiche of the classic Sherlock Holmes stories (which the novel was). The result is a highly enjoyable mystery / adventure and a first rate film.
To start off with, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution has a first rate cast. Nicol Williamson proves himself to be a near-perfect Sherlock Holmes. Williamson captures much of the Holmes persona that is both cannon and non-canonical from the great detective’s remarkable ability of deduction (wonderfully demonstrated in his first meeting with Freud) to Holmes in the midst of a cocaine addiction to the wonderful finale of the film. There’s also Robert Duvall as Watson who pulls off the accent without any problems I could hear and is arguably amongst the best of the on-screen Watson’s with his chemistry with Williamson’s Holmes and Alan Arkin playing a wonderful Sigmund Freud who fits perfectly in the Holmes universe. Then there’s the truly remarkable supporting cast which ranges from Vanessa Redgrave as Deveraux to Charles Gray as Mycroft Holmes to Jeremy Kemp as the villainous Baron Von Leinsdorf and of course Laurence Olivier as a different kind of Professor Moriarty. As I said it is a first rate cast.
The production values of the film are fantastic. Production Designer Ken Adams and costume designer Alan Barrett bring the Strand magazine drawing that accompanied the original Doyle stories to stunning life with their respective work and it is easy to see why Barrett was nominated for an Oscar. Then there’s the cinematography of Oswald Morris which makes the work of both Adams and Barrett seem even better on screen and, underlying all of it, there is a score by composer John Addison that perfectly captures the spirit of the events taking place. Then there is the direction of the late Herbert Ross which keeps the entire film moving along from one event to another without being unnecessarily slow or fast and keeping the fast perfect 9or pretty close to it).
And of course there is the script by Nicholas Meyer and it is easy to see how he too was nominated for an Oscar. Meyer based his script on his own bestselling novel (which you should read as a companion to the film). Meyer, unlike most novelists, is perfectly willing to make some significant changes to his novel to make it work on screen. True there are sequences missing from the novel, but the film creates new sequences and uses them to great effect. Meyer also lays humor into the script which is, thankfully, not only non-intrusive but also manages to actually add to the pleasure of viewing the film. Meyer, like in his novel, isn’t afraid to turn the Holmes cannon on its ear just a little bit. While there are (and I suspect always will be) people screaming “blasphemy” at this I look at this way: Does a story really have to be cannon to be enjoyed?
In the final analysis, I believe that that The Seven-Per-Cent Solution can be enjoyed whether or not it fits easily (or at all) into the continuity of the rest of the Sherlock Holmes stories. With a first rate cast, excellent production values, top notch direction and an excellent script there is plenty to enjoy about this film. It is a highly enjoyable mystery / adventure and a first rate film to say the least. In fact the only shame about it being nominated for two Oscars is the fact it didn’t win either of them.
