GeneWilder's 1975 directorial debut. Many fans will recall that Franchise/SherlockHolmes did in fact have an older brother, Mycroft, who was by all accounts indeed smarter than Sherlock, yet [[BrilliantButLazy too lazy]] to accomplish what Sherlock had. This film follows his ''younger'' brother Sigerson's DayInTheLimelight.
