Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

Beautiful pictures and most dashing Jeremy + his two cute Watsons. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Brings up many happy memories from my childhood when I was an avid watcher of "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes".

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson with Mary Morstan from "The Sign of Four." In this series, Watson did not marry her and they had kept him as a bachelor. Although they certainly alluded to the attraction.

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

"But I remember saying to Jeremy . . . "I feel I'm disappearing inside my costume." I just felt everything was too overwhelming and there wasn't an awful lot for Watson to do and I do remember David (Burke) saying that he found it very difficult to have to react a lot without having a lot of text. Jeremy subsequently found that he got a bit fed up, and I think understandably, with having to learn *huge* amounts of text and tried to get the writers to dispense a bit of it to Watson. So I picked up some of the kind of bits that Jeremy didn't really want to do."-Edward Hardwicke

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

"I remember when Sir Alistair Cook said to me, many years ago, about 1981, before we started, he said that the three most memorable people in the last hundred years are Churchill, Hitler and Sherlock Holmes. Now this was meant to encourage me – I was terrified! “Well, that’s really done it now.” I mean, I didn’t want to play the part in the first place because I thought I would fail! ‘Cause there had been so many people playing it before. But to think that one of those three people never existed at all is extraordinary!"- Jeremy Brett

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

"I will never get to the bottom of the barrel. When I get stuck, I put my hand further into the sawdust. Holmes is the most complex, isolated creature--a complete eccentric, a very private man, a very lonely man. He's a man with a brilliant instinct who can be a demented nightbird, driving around the streets of London in the dead of night. He's very gracious to women, but a man with a fear of women--a man who doesn't believe in society of trivia."- Jeremy Brett

"I don't really mind actually. I must be very grateful to Arthur Conan Doyle because we are in the deepest recession in England, and only five percent of my profession are at work. I'm one of them at work, so I'm not knocking it."- Jeremy Brett on being typecast as Holmes

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

"Tina Turner may not agree, but the world does need heroes and yet again, at the end of another century, Holmes captures the heroic bent...I think he's a very modern person. He's interested in the poor, the street, law and justice. He got there before Clint Eastwood."-Jeremy Brett

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

 “I no longer feel threatened by Holmes, in fact I really enjoy playing him. Holmes is an upholder of the law, and he has a magnetism and mental genius that have been compulsive for people throughout the last hundred years. I was astounded when I realized how attractive he is to them (women). You'd never suspect it for one moment from the books. Girls long to seduce him. I do know that the team at Granada Studios are the finest. To everyone who has worked on these films of 'Sir Arthur Conan Doyle''s stories in the past decade, only one word can express how I feel: Bravo! Holmes has finally given me recognition as a real actor, not just an aging pretty face. “- Jeremy Brett

Re: Jeremy Brett Picture Thread

"During our 10 year association, I was privileged to get to know Jeremy very well. We became great friends. We both believed that the friendship between Holmes and Watson must be rooted in humour. In reality, Jeremy made sure there was always laughter when we were working. In spite of the enormous strain his illness placed on him he never lost his sense of joy. He had a wonderful laugh. It was infectious. The enormous list of actors and technicians who worked on the series will tell you that they never had a happier job. That was Jeremy. This, of course, was the background to a great actor giving a great performance. I shall miss him." – Edward Hardwicke
