    Once in the Doctor's care Holmes is hypnotized and the cure occurs with no small effort on the part of all three men. Knowing that Sherlock would never willingly see a doctor about his addiction and mental problems, Watson and Holmes' brother Mycroft induce Holmes to travel to Vienna, where Watson introduces him to Dr. And while there is absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying musical theater, my interest was accompanied by an extremely, please trust me inaccurate belief that I could sing. Wells is not only the author of The Time Machine, he is actually the inventor of the machine depicted in his ground-breaking novel. Holmes remarks during the denouement that they have succeeded only in postponing such a conflict, not preventing it; Holmes would later become involved in a " European War " in Holmes and Freud discuss the political situation in Europe, particularly with regards to the German Kaiserwho has a pathological obsession with military strength.

    But Doyle never again featured Latter-day Saint characters or references in his Holmes stories. Freud and Watson conclude that Holmes, consciously unable to face the emotional ramifications of this event, has pushed them deep into his unconscious while finding outlets in fighting evil, pursuing justice, and many of his famous eccentricitiesincluding his cocaine habit. There is only a case in which Holmes can get involved as he surmises, based on evidence, that Devereaux's attempted suicide and her being back on cocaine is solely the result of she having been abducted and held captive, her captivity from which she was able to escape. James Moriartyand " The Empty House ", wherein Holmes reappeared after a three-year absence and revealed that he had not been killed after all. They remove Ms. John Watson delaying the publication of their last adventure for ten years until the great detective and an anonymous third party have passed away in the 's.

    Watson, and Alan Arkin as Dr. First and by no means least is the sudden reappearance of the great love of Holmes's life, an accomplished singer from Hoboken, New Jersey. He has been publicly persecuting who he considers his arch nemesis, aged Mathematics Professor James Moriarty. John H.

The Seven-Per-Cent Solution book

Sigmund Freud. Below is dialogue from the movie "The Seven-Percent Solution" from the scene in which the Book of Mormon is mentioned: Sherlock Holmes: I never guess: it is an appalling habit, destructive to the logical faculty. The novel presents this view as nothing more than the fevered imagining of Holmes' cocaine-sodden mind.

A fight ensues between Holmes and his foe, which ends in the baron's death. The absence of dust on the cover would tend to confirm this hypothesis. Somewhat fancifully, the story brings the famous detective Sherlock Holmes together with Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis. From that point on, his onetime tutor became a dark and malignant figure in Holmes' subconscious.

That you're fond of Shakespeare is to be deduced from this book, which is lying face downwards. The false baroness is also found, and revealed to be an actress named Diana Marlowewhom the young baron had seduced in Berlin. John Watson, who only knows Moriarty by name through Holmes' rants against him, believes the addiction to cocaine is fueling Holmes' persecution, especially after he finally meets Moriarty, who he believes to be a decent person.

She has managed to escape her captivity from a nearby warehouse and claims to be Nancy Slater from Providence, RI. It's funny, intelligent and very 'real' to the genuine stories. Now, what can it be that forces a man to remove these testimonials to his success? Why, only that he has ceased to affiliate himself with these various societies and hospitals and so forth, and why do this, having once troubled to join them all?

Inside, they are presented to the Baroness von Leinsdorf, who immediately tells them that the catatonic woman is her former maid, Nora Simmons. Doyle wrote his original "Sherlock Holmes" tale without actually knowing abou Mormons from first-hand experience. Meyer took the Holmes character and turned him and the myth of Moriarty on its head.

Sherlock Holmes: Oh, it is implied by the fact that you have removed the plaques from the societies to which you no longer belong. Instead Watson tells the tale of returning to Baker Street and finding his old friend in throes of a cocaine addiction.

Sigmund Freud: Yah. Why, I've no idea. The film essentially follows the book which is not too surprising in that Meyer wrote the screenplay as well. The nine-branched candelabra on your desk confirms my suspicion that you are of the Jewish faith; it is called a menorah, is it not?

That the study belongs to you exclusively is evident from the dust: not even the maid is permitted here, else she would scarcely have ventured to let matters come to this pass. Nothing flashy or elaborate - just a good story told well. He had married Miss Slater, a Quaker, and re-written his will leaving his factories to her with the intent she should dismantle them.

Nicholas Meyer Holmes Pastiches

At the end of her search, she found a copy of The Canary Trainer, languishing unread on her own bookshelf, and passed it along to me, thinking it was the perfect combination of a musical with which I had become obsessedand a diversion that she hoped would prevent her from having to spend the rest of the summer popping migraine medication.

The novel presents this view as nothing more than the fevered imagining of Holmes' cocaine-sodden mind and further asserts that Moriarty was the childhood mathematics tutor of Sherlock and his brother Mycroft.
