 View the Poster for the Event HERE

Sherlock Holmes is the most popular detective around today.  He can be found on the BBC as a high-strung neurotic genius, in Hollywood as a violent crime fighter, and now on TV with a female Watson side-kick. Return to the classics.  Embrace tradition.  Enjoy the 1970s Soviet adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories in Russian (with English subtitles):

Oct 23rd - The Sign of Four

Oct 30th - His Last Bow

On the UT campus in Calhoun Hall, room 422.

Read a description of the series and bios of the very popular actors Vasily Livanov (Holmes) and Vitaly Solomin (Watson):

 "The Conan Doyle stories had been made into many films before us, but, as I see it, our characters are remarkable in being very human and convincing. This is probably why the British recognized our film to be the best European version of its kind" - Vasily Livanov in Lifestyle: A Russia Journal Publication Issue No.2 (45) -  24th Jan 2000

No pipes, please.
