December meeting at Queen Anne Library
December 16 @ 1:00 am - 4:00 pm
It is December and that means, as always, it is time to talk about The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle from The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. For December 2018, the SOBs enjoyed a viewing of the 1984 Granada Television production staring Jeremy Brett and David Burke, and those present voiced general approval of the adaption. For our 2018 BLUE review, we will watch another television adaption of the tale from 1968; this BBC film stars Peter Cushing and Nigel Stock. Will we like it as well as the Granada film? Will we like it at all?
If nothing else, we can enjoy the very talented Frank Middlemas again this year. In the BBC adaption he portrayed Commissionaire Peterson, and sixteen years later he played the hapless (and hatless) Henry Baker later in the Granada film.
