“Paddy Chayefsky has been responsible for some lovely lines in his life, but nothing quite to equal the monologue by which this marvelous actress [Rigg] seduces [Scott], by word and well-exposed leg.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times

THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS

Directed by Anthony Harvey

(1971) Around the bend since his wife’s death, judge George C. Scott thinks he’s Sherlock Holmes, complete with deerstalker, and hard on the trail of that dastardly Moriarty. But when his brother tries to get him committed, shrink Joanne Woodward’s Dr. Watson (!), starts to get in on the game herself. Adapted by James Goldman (Lion in Winter) from his play. 35mm. Approx. 86 min.​
