Lelicek in the Services of Sherlock Holmes (original Czech title Lelícek ve sluzbách Sherlocka Holmesa) is a Czech 1932 B&W comedy directed by Karel Lamac and starring Martin Fric as Sherlock Holmes. The movie uses Arthur Conan Doyle's character but has an original plot: the great detective is hired to protect King Fernando XXIII of fictional kingdom of Puerto Rico who is afraid of the Anarchists. Holmes needs a double for the king and finds such man, a Czech Frantisek Lelicek. Being in debts, Lelicek accepts the offer, but on arrival in Puerto Rico, the fake king turns out to be a really good ruler.

The movie was remade in France in same year as Le roi bis. Martin Fric also appeared as Sherlock Holmes in French version but all other actors were different.

The following weapons were used in the film Lelicek in the Services of Sherlock Holmes (Lelícek ve sluzbách Sherlocka Holmesa):


Lefaucheux Revolver

When Holmes (Martin Fric) appears in the secret headquarters of the conspirators, he is armed with two revolvers: a Lefaucheux Revolver of unclear model and a top-break Smith & Wesson.

For comparison: Lefaucheux Model 1854 - 12mm Pinfire.
Holmes, dressed in the uniform of Puerto Rico royal guards officer, holds two revolvers, one of which is a Lefaucheux.

Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action

Holmes' top-break revolver appears to be a kind of Smith & Wesson .44 Double Action (possibly some European copy of this revolver).

Walther Model 7

A Walther pistol is seen on Holmes' table. It is most likely Model 7.

The pistol is seen on the table. The shape of the front of the frame allows to differ it from generally similar Model 4. A revolver, seen in the bottom, appears to be one the guns, described above.

Percussion Dueling Pistol

One of the Anarchists holds a handgun with a long slim barrel. Possibly this a kind of Percussion Dueling Pistol.
