Sherlock Holmes is their guiding spirit. He’s the inspiration for brothers Gustav and Otto Amlingmeyer’s decision to pursue the “mystery-solvin’ line.” Gustav does the “dee-tectin,’’ and Otto records their adventures, à la Holmes and Watson. In the spirit of tall tales, William Dufris gives a cheeky performance, never missing a chance to take the author’s imaginative silliness over the top. In their fifth adventure, the Amlingmeyers enter a competition to decide the World’s Greatest Sleuth, held at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair. William Pinkerton is the judge. After a body is found floating in a vat of cheddar cheese, the detecting gets almost serious. Dufris delivers lively dialogue, high-energy melodrama, and a whole lot of fun for fans.
