Movie Misquotes: Sherlock Holmes

Misquote: “Elementary, my dear Watson!”

This is a big misquote because Sherlock Holmes never said it, at least not in any of the books!

This quote was first made in a film review in the New York Times on October 19, 1929. It became popularised only after its trademark use in The Return of Sherlock Holmes (1929) (the first Holmes film with sound), with Clive Brook and H. Reeves-Smith.
