Episode 624: The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976) Special Guest: Nicholas Meyer
Guest Co-Hosts: Aaron Peterson. David MacGregor

We continue our month of discussions around the 1970s interpretations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. On this episode we’re discussing The Seven-Per-Cent Solution from 1976. Directed by Herbert Ross and written by -- and based on his first of many Sherlock Holmes books -- the film finds Sherlock Holmes (Nicol Williamson) in the grip of cocaine addiction while Dr. John Watson (Robert Duvall) plans to take his friend to Vienna to undergo therapy by Sigmund Freud (Alan Arkin).

Aaron Peterson (The Hollywood Outsider) and playwright and author David MacGregor join Mike to discuss the film while Nicholas Meyer talks about his many Holmes novels.
