1985's YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES was a heart-breaker for all involved. Produced by Steven Spielberg and Henry Winkler (yes, THAT one!), written by GREMLINS, THE GOONIES' Chris Columbus (who'd later direct the first two HARRY POTTERs), and helmed by Barry Levinson (RAIN MAN, THE NATURAL), it was a loose but loving adventure which speculated Holmes & Watson meeting as boarding school students who team to solve a series of terrifying murders on campus. Not a box office success at the time, it has since become a fan favorite which would also launch the filmic careers of the directors of BLADE and TOY STORY; and even serve as structural inspiration for J.K. Rowling's HARRY POTTER yarns. Includes film audio clips, as well as excerpts from Bruce Broughton's classic score, and archival interview commentary by Pixar / Disney Studio head John Lasseter - at the time responsible for the film's legendary signature FX sequence (one of the first via CGI) - the come-to-life "Stained Glass Warrior Knight".
