7 degrees of Sherlock Holmes - Kirk Douglas

The film world lost one of its greats this week.
Kirk Douglas 1916-2019.

Not many of us can say we have never seen a Kirk Douglas movie.

Born poor, he became one of Hollywoods strongest personalities.

There is however a Sherlockian connection very early in his career.

In 1947 he took part in 'Morning becomes Electra'

Which also starred Raymond Massey who played Sherlock Holmes in  . . . .

. . . 1937s The Speckled Band.

And who's daughter, Anna, was married to Jermey Brett for a while.

So, there you have it, there you are.
