Detectives

Lau Lauritzen Sr., Denmark, 1929

145 min.DK/FeatureComedy, Crime filmSilent films

The police are utterly powerless against the unusually cunning criminal Terry and his gang. The master detective Sherlock Holmes is put on the case, and it doesn’t take long before the search gets warmer – Holmes just doesn’t know it yet! Pat and Patachon, who have set themselves up as magazine dealers in a small kiosk, get involved in the case by accident and go on quite a journey.

The film is part of Lau Lauritzen Sr.’s popular Pat and Patachon series, which was Danish film’s biggest export success throughout the 1920s. The film was released again with sound in 1956 together with Strength and Beauty under the title Fuld af Fiduser (which translates as Full of Tricks).
