Synopsis: In Maine, there was Collinwood and the three centuries of history that were woven into its walls. In London, there is Holmeswood Manor (or the Manor on Baker Street as the urban legends have it), tucked now into a city street when once its oak woods rolled from the heath to the river.

John grew up with its stories of ghosts and wizards and things that hunt in the night. They didn’t keep him from interviewing for a residential post at the Manor because he couldn’t afford London on an army pension and there could not possibly have been any truth to the tales.
A/N: A sequel to the gothic AU of the Sherlock universe inspired by the universe of Dark Shadows (the television series) I wrote last spring for the 2016 Miniseries March Challenge. Series Two is set almost a year after the first series.

New Sherlock Holmes monument in Russia (in Yekaterinburg) [21 Mar 2017|02:21am]

Оригинал взят у alek_morse в Приключения памятника Шерлоку Холмсу в Екатеринбурге
.

Since 2017 in Russia there are two Sherlock Holmes monuments, and both have a resemblance to actor Vasily Livanov (who played the great detective on Soviet TV in 1980s).

First, I would like to thank Lara Davidson, who gave a link to my post (I didn't have time to prepare the message in English). Secondly, I have to admit that the Sherlock Holmes monument to in my native city of Yekaterinburg (Ural) was an absolute surprise for me. This sculpture was installed in the new shopping-entertainment center "Greenwich" a few months ago. Sculptor – Igor Akimov. You can read his name in the notebook that is held by the bronze Holmes. This monument is very similar to the one established in Moscow in 2007 – firstly, the composition is repeated: Sherlock Holmes with his friend Dr. Watson (the Moscow's monument is created by sculptor Andrei Orlov). But there are differences.

A/N: A short missing scene from The Lying Detective; John and Sherlock's conversation continues a little longer than what we heard.

Excerpt: Maybe it’s unwise to write this down, but I don’t want that weird thing that happens with memories to happen to this. I want to own up to what it was and hold tight to what it means, because I have trouble with that. I admit it. I hide from myself more than I hide from anyone else, although I do that, too. This, I don’t ever want to lose sight of, no matter how many body parts are in the fridge.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Reuniting for Silly Sleuthing in ‘Holmes & Watson’ [16 Aug 2016|10:35pm]

killerweasel
[ mood | curious ]

There’s yet another Sherlock Holmes adaptation on the horizon, but this one promises to be mighty different. Per Deadline, Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reteaming not for a Step Brothers sequel (sadly), but to star in Holmes & Watson, a comedy take on the iconic sleuthing duo. Ferrell is onboard to play Holmes, while Reilly will play the loyal James Watson.

Ferrell is reuniting with his Get Hard director Etan Cohen on the pic, which Sony Pictures originally purchased as a starring vehicle for Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen. Although that iteration of the project stalled, the film gained new life when Reilly became interested and the schedules for all involved coalesced. The plan now is to go into production right after Thanksgiving, meaning we could see Holmes & Watson hit theaters sometime next year.

While Ferrell and Reilly were absolutely stellar in the R-rated Step Brothers, this Holmes & Watson comedy is being envisioned as a PG-13 pic, so it’ll be more in line with the duo’s Talladega Nights in terms of crudeness. Cohen made a name for himself scripting Idiocracy and Tropic Thunder before making his feature directorial debut with last year’s successful Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy Get Hard.

The world is not lacking for Sherlock Holmes adaptations at the moment, between the beloved BBC series Sherlock, CBS’ solid Elementary, and the developing third installment in the Robert Downey Jr./Jude Law feature film franchise (which is apparently gaining steam), but Holmes & Watson proves to be different if only because of the buffoonery at which Ferrell and Reilly excel. While I’ll admit this news would be considerably more exciting if Adam McKay were writing and directing, the now Oscar-nominated director is currently busy prepping a new drama starring Jennifer Lawrence called Bad Blood, so the timing wouldn’t have worked out anyway.

Happy Birthday, Vasily Livanov! [20 Jul 2016|12:51am]

alek_morse
July, 19 - Vasily Livanov, Russian Sherlock Holmes of Lenfilm 1980s TV series, celebrates his 81.

The old magazine publication is for you.

- from a Soviet magazine "The Pioneer", 1981
- heading “Recess”
- an interview with Vasily Livanov

A few episodes of the TV film "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson" have caused a stream of letters to our editors. The teens have immediately remembered that Vasily LIVANOV not only played the role of Holmes, he also voiced the favourite characters in the cartoons: Gena the Crocodile, Boa, Black Cat...

We asked our correspondent Olga Pozharskaya to meet with Vasily Livanov, the Honored Artist of the Republic.

(…)

CORR. However, you can not get away from the questions about Holmes ...

LIVANOV. Well, my work on Sherlock Holmes’ image was not too different from my working in animation. Conan Doyle described Holmes very accurately – his looks and his clothes. I only had to fill these well-known features with human content. Sherlock Holmes always comes to persons rescue in distress, he is noble and selfless. This is his great human appeal.

CORR. The guys ask how terrible the Baskervilles hound was looked in a life.

LIVANOV. The film crew chose the most enormous dog in the Soviet Union, with the most frightening appearance, but as it turned out, with the most gentle temperament. Before the shooting the dog attack on Henry Baskerville (played by Nikita Mikhalkov) the director categorically forbade to endanger a famous actor. Then the dog owner was dressed in a Nikita’s coat. He ran. The dog followed on the heels of him, he fell, and the dog... the dog frustrated all the plans: she quietly lay down near the owner and licked him from head to toe. This scene was shot twenty times in a row, but the peaceful nature of the dog has not been spoiled. The director had to make a tricky film montage.

CORR. Thank you for an interesting story!

1984 interview with Russian Sherlock Holmes [22 Mar 2016|03:59pm]

alek_morse

In this day, 22 March 1980 there was TV premiere of first two episodes of "Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson" produced by Lenfilm studio.

I have found 1984 interview with Vasily Livanov.

VISITING HOLMES
Topic: Autograph for you
The newspaper "Komsomolskaya Pravda", September 18, 1984
Reporter: A. Koroleva

Yes, my dear reader, a friendship between two literary characters influenced the relationship of actors who performed their roles in the TV adaptation. Before the film Vasily Livanov and Vitaly Solomin were not even familiar. According to Livanov, on the set, they have found the right path to understanding. A close creative friendship arose. As a result, V. Solomin staged Livanov’s play "My favorite clown" in the Maly Theater, he also played a major role in the play. And now, after the next episodes of "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson," they dream about the duo in the film based on the V. Livanov’s novel.

Vasily Livanov responds to readers' questions.

E. MOTUZ, FROM BENDER: During this era of the insane speeds, born of scientific and technological progress – unflappable, calm, thoughtful Holmes seems especially is welcome on TV...

LIVANOV: I also wondered why in the 1980s, we suddenly turned to Sherlock Holmes? What do we want to say to our audience? Why is Holmes a modern hero for us?
For me, Holmes is a modern hero, because he is devoted to the cause and also is example of absolute unselfishness. I admire his moral mental readiness to help in distress. He struggles against evil, against any manifestation of anti-humanism. That's why I put my civil feelings in this image. I was very proud when in Monte Carlo in 1982, the special edition of the film festival magazine published an article with the words: "The real Sherlock Holmes is a Soviet." Particularly I’m pleased that our Holmes is recognized by the British. On last festival evening there has been such a case. The British delegation head approached to the Soviet delegation head and said: "I understand that actor Livanov should sit with your delegation, but Sherlock Holmes should sit with us."
