(NBC, 10/18/1976, 120 mins). There is an affectionate bow to Conan Doyle’s master sleuth in this lavishly produced original that has Holmes rushing to New York City after discovering that his old nemesis, Moriarty, not only has kidnapped the son of his (Holmes’) longtime love, actress Irene Adler, but also has hatched a scheme to steal the world’s gold supply, squirreled away under Union Square in lower Manhattan.
