Robert Downey, Jr. is a great actor, no question in my mind. But Downey is not – I repeat, not – Sherlock Holmes. Not in my world. That cinematic honor goes to either Jeremy Brett, in the superb British TV series, or to Basil Rathbone, in the old Hollywood movies. And Jude Law versus Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson? Please. Watch Rathbone and Bruce in one of their better Universal entries, Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, by clicking here.
