Having not yet seen the DVD I have, however, seen the film on its first theatrical release (double billed with MCKenna's Gold). Most folks reviewing the film mention Miklos Rozsa's fine score. Few realize that Billy Wilder based the plot ideas for the film on the Miklos Rozsa Violin Concerto and that Rozsa adapted the Concerto themes to form the basis for the score. Find the 1955 Jascha Heifeitz recording on RCA (available on CD)or look for the 6 minutes adapted Fantasy recorded by Rozsa. If ever there was music to inspire a Sherlock Holmes story this is it.
