Seven Degrees of Sherlock Holmes - Who would have thought, Jim Nabors.

If you grew up in the 60's, you knew who Jim Nabors was. Either from his sit-com or from his singing.

Jim Nabors, 1930-2017 had an uncredited part in,

'Take Her, She's Mine' 1963

Which also featured Robert Morley 1908-1992

Who played Mycroft Holmes in 'A Study in Terror' 1965

So, there you have it, there you are.


  1. Jim Nabors in one step - he played Gomer Pyle on "The Andy Griffin Show" which co-starred Don Knotts. Don Knotts played Inspector Winship who wears the trademark Sherlock deerstalker hat but smokes a cigar instead of a pipe in the film "Private Eyes" (1980). Also Don Knotts voiced Homer Pipsqueak, a detective in Sherlockian garb in "The New Scooby-Doo Movies - Guess Who's Knott Coming to Dinner" (1972).
