At the beginning of Sherlock's finale (The Final Problem), Mycroft Holmes was watching a classic movie. Could you please recognize it? What is the movie's name?

  • Per Walts answer I know it's not, but I swear that woman is a carbon copy of Famke Janssen as phoenix (Jean Grey). i.ytimg.com/vi/bHC0oOkRfog/maxresdefault.jpg – Sidney Jan 20 '17 at 17:58
  • I'm pretty sure that movie was supposed to be a hidden message and part of the show. I don't quite remember for sure. – The Great Duck Jan 20 '17 at 21:45
  • As the answer says it's not a real movie, but it's meant to look like a Dick Tracy-style detective movie. – Keshav Srinivasan Jan 20 '17 at 23:31

It's not a real film. It's a fictional 'classic' noir film made for this show. If you look them up on IMDb, the actors playing 'Leonard' and 'Velma' in that movie are contemporary actors and started acting in 2004 and 2006, respectively (and they don't play these characters anywhere else).
