The Long-Lost Sherlock: Sherlock Holmes

Starring William Gillette

Discovered in a French vault in 2014, this painstakingly restored full-length movie was ranked among the holy grails of lost film for almost 100 years. At the time the film was made, actor William Gillette was famous worldwide for his portrayal of Holmes on the stage. As one historian noted, “He made Sherlock Holmes a character for the first time rather than a caricature.” The film, based on the play Gillette himself adapted, takes inspiration from the best-known stories and is the sole surviving footage of Gillette as Homes. The actor is considered by many to be the definitive Sherlock and is credited with popularizing the trademark imagery still seen today, including the curved pipe and deerstalker cap.
