Some of the plot feels more childish, but it often hits home.

    The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes


    One of my very favorites Billy Wilder. The first half hour alone is brillant and moving, and the case is tricky, funny but not tacky. The relation between Sherlock and Watson is great, very modern.
