Common misconceptions about Sherlock Holmes.

Many of us have grown up on stories about the brilliant detective. In addition, many with pleasure watching the film adaptation based on the stories by Arthur Conan Doyle. However, in the course of transfer of the information by word of mouth have any effect “broken telephone” and we’re not quite accurately understand the image of the great Sherlock.

Many fans of Sherlock Holmes indignantly believe that is created on the basis of short stories Doyle movies, should be just the fruit of inspiration of the Director and not get attached to Sherlock Holmes. In short, it is better to remove the story of one Mr. Smith, on the basis of short stories than to remake the original story and call it loud “the adventures of Sherlock Holmes”.

Of course, outrage is justified, because the true hero Doyle was not like his film “twins”.

Sherlock Holmes was a “maniac purity”. In the movie, where Sherlock plays Downey Jr, the image of the mystery, to put it mildly, dirty: Sherlock wear clothes for a couple of sizes bigger is not always clean, and about the hair and say terrible. However, in the story “the Dog Baskerviley”, Sherlock Holmes, being in ambush in the hut ask you to bring him clean sheets and wash clothes. That is, while in the field, he does not forget about their own health.

Sherlock Holmes didn’t like. Again will return to the formulation of Hollywood with Downey Jr. It Directors added melodramatic storyline where Irene Adler is a matter of passion Sherlock. Besides her, Sherlock does not disdain not the brotherly love of Watson. Actually, Irene Adler appears at Arthur Conan Doyle only in one product, “a Scandal in Bohemia”. It is known that Sherlock only admires the fact that she was able to circle it around your finger. But really, if this turned out to be a man, detective similarly paid him tribute. Arthur Conan Doyle did not enter romantic storylines in his stories about the detective.

Moriarty was not sworn enemy Sherlock. There is an opinion that Sherlock believed Moriarty their enemy. However, this conclusion was made by the readers after “Reyhenbahskogo fall”. Consider Moriarty enemy steel because I hated after the death of detective. Fans of Sherlock took Moriarty for his enemy, because they have died favorite Sherlock. From here and hatred. Although this character was originally introduced by the author for killing his hero, as he Arthur was going to stop detective and start writing the story in a different direction. The public rebelled and demanded to “resurrect” the detective and continue to please the most interesting stories.

Sherlock Holmes was young. All believe that the detective was a middle-aged man, however, when they met with Watson, both of them were a little more than 25 years. Just Watson has been to the war, and readers began to ascribe to him the more experienced of the year. As for Sherlock, the fans just don’t believe that you can be so clever at such a young years.
