The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes
(Billy Wilder, 1970). Wilder's valentine to Conan Doyle's mythical detective is an odd blend of comedy and melancholy, pairing Robert Stephens as a foppish and surprisingly vulnerable Holmes with Colin Blakely's lovable Dr. Watson. Although the director was usually more concerned with story than imagery, this wonderful autumnal work turned out to be the best-looking picture of his career.
