13. "Jude Law to be new Sherlock." The Evening Standard (London), February 25, 2002: 6.

"He will appear as the detective in 'Sherlock Holmes and the Vengeance of Dracula.' A movie source said today: 'With his great looks and accent, Jude will be perfect for the role of Holmes. This will be the darkest Sherlock Holmes project ever made.' In 1990, before he became famous, the 29-year-old actor had a bit part in the TV series The Casebook Of Sherlock Holmes, with Jeremy Brett as Holmes."

14. "A long and winding trip." Economist 358, no. 8206 (2001): 83-84.

Discusses the portrayal of drug abuse in motion pictures and includes a passing reference to Holmes. "From the silent era, when few police adventures were complete without a chase through a Chinatown opium den, Hollywood has treated drugs with an unstable mixture of fear and fascination, moralism and concern. In 1930 came outright denial in the form of a self-censorship code which, among other strictures, forbade depiction of drug takers or makers in any light whatsoever. Film producers almost all complied. Even in Sherlock Holmes films you had to be a detective yourself to intuit that the demon sleuth liked cocaine."

15. "The master detective on screen." The Times (London), September 2, 2002: 19.

"Sherlock Holmes has been played by nearly 100 actors in more than 200 films. Ellie Norwood, a hit as Holmes in 47 films in the early 1920s, tackled the role with a De Niro-like intensity. He read all the stories, learnt to play the violin (presumably badly) and wore a dressing gown given to him by Arthur Conan Doyle. But he grew weary of the part. Basil Rathbone, partnered by Nigel Bruce's amiable old buffer of a Watson, made the role his own in the 1940s....Most post-Rathbone Holmeses have been a rather dreary lot. Perhaps the role's need for both restraint and flamboyance cancel each other out....Their old foe Moriarty features in the forthcoming The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, in which he does battle with Dr Jekyll and Captain Nemo. Holmes's big-screen future currently looks as if he'll have to play second fiddle. As we know already, that's not a sweet- sounding prospect."

Packed within its modest length is enough comic material for several ordinary features, but Keaton and uncredited co-director Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle have compressed it all into a dazzling display of cinematic inventiveness that characterizes the timeless art of Buster Keaton"--Videodisc sleeve.

42. Coughlan, Gilles. "Elementary, my dear Gayle." The Globe and Mail (Toronto), January 3, 2002: A16.

Letter to the editor. "It is unfortunate that, in an otherwise excellent article on Sherlock Holmes, Gayle MacDonald chose to bring out the tired cliché that 'no one, it is generally agreed, can touch Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce' in portraying Holmes and Watson (The Case Of The Perennial Sleuth -- Jan. 2). While that might have been true 20 years ago, since the mid- to late-1980s, the Sherlockian/Holmesian community has been divided by a friendly debate as to which actor has best portrayed the great detective. For many fans, Jeremy Brett, who appears in the Granada TV series, deserves the title. As far as Nigel Bruce is concerned, most Sherlockians I know agree that the actor's performance had little to do with what the real Dr. Watson was like. As far as I am concerned, his performance in the 1939 Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was atrocious."

"There were many things that made the Granada 'Sherlock Holmes' series such a great success, and one of the most important was careful preparation and attention to detail on the part of producer Michael Cox. Part of that preliminary work was the creation by Cox, associate producer Stuart Doughty, and researcher Nicky Cooney, of an 80-page detailed production guide, extracted from the Canon and issued as a stapled handbook to those who worked on the series. And now that background bible is available to those who would like to see their work, with a new foreword by Cox."

45. Culley, Maureen. "Fry adds weight to the role of Sherlock Holmes." Daily Mail (London), March 31, 2004: 37.

"It is a mystery to tax even the legendary powers of the master detective himself. For almost 120 years, fans of Sherlock Holmes have known him as a tall, hawk- nosed man whose rigorous studies have left him, in the words of his trusty companion Dr Watson, 'excessively lean'. So when makers of a Pounds 2million TV adaptation of the famous sleuth's adventures cast rather more robustly proportioned comedian Stephen Fry as their new Holmes, it seemed a strange choice to say the least. To confuse matters further, Dr Watson often portrayed on screen as a plump and bumbling Victorian gentleman is to be played by Fry's perenially slim comic partner Hugh Laurie...."

Includes bibliographical references. Scuttlebutt Aug 2001.; "The coverage runs from the earliest silent films to the latest television films starring Matt Frewer, and the discussion of films and programs, and actors and directors and producers, is both interesting and perceptive; the illustrations are just as important, and the book is full of them, many in full color and some of them quite hard to find (you will be able to see Jackie Coogan towering over Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, in Hollywood in 1923) (well, Coogan is standing on a table). There's an extra benefit for those who can't decide between Basil Rathbone and Jeremy Brett as the ideal Holmes: the publisher has provided a 'Janus' dust jacket, and you can decide for yourself which actor belongs on the front of the book."

"As Sherlock Holmes returns to the stage, Ian Johns dons his deerstalker to investigate the pursuit of the whole sleuth. It's quite elementary, if you think about it. Sherlock Holmes was a woman who disguised herself as a man. That high voice and hairless chin, that secrecy about the past and the mysterious childhood. That love of dissembling. How else could a Victorian woman solve crimes in such a chauvinistic age? Curiously, Holmes's trusty chronicler Dr Watson (and Arthur Conan Doyle) failed to note this fact. But Therese Lentz did with her 1994 play 221B Baker Street. When it comes to the world's greatest detective, the theatre has often lifted the curtain on some lesser known aspect of his life. But finding the right tone has always been a three-pipe problem. 'It's the biggest hurdle,' admits the actor-turned-playwright Simon Williams, whose new version of The Hound of the Baskervilles opens this week at the Belgrade in Coventry. 'If it's too reverential and literal then you simply end up with a flat transcription. The best adaptations take a few liberties.'..."

"Although their hasty flickering worlds have little to do with Arthur Conan Doyle, there will only ever be one quicksilver-sardonic Sherlock Holmes, and, bumbling sweetly beside him, only one Watson. Basil Rathbone, like a sneering rapier, and Nigel Bruce first breathed life into the duo for 20th Century Fox's Hound of the Baskervilles (1939) and the same year's follow-up, The Adventures of ... Both films were moody main features, faithful to Conan Doyle in plot and period. Between 1942-1946 Universal employed the pair to reprise the roles in 12 fine B-movies, transposing Holmes and Watson to (then) modern times. Showing this week are five of these: Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942), The Pearl of Death (1944), Pursuit to Algiers (1945), House of Fear (1945) and The Woman in Green (1945), all directed by Roy William Neil...."

"...His creator, who named him after a pair of cricketers called Sherlock and Holmes, had little fondness for him, and many of the actors who played him often became exasperated by him. He was haughty, erratic, self- obsessed and his violin-playing was atrocious. 'I came to the conclusion (as one may in living too closely and too long in seclusion with any one rather unique and difficult personality) that there was nothing lovable about Holmes,' Basil Rathbone admitted after playing the detective in 14 feature films, innumerable radio plays and an ill-fated Broadway show. Eille Norwood, who clocked up 47 screen appearances as Holmes in the early 1920s, grew equally frustrated at being typecast as the man with 'the dressing gown, the violin and the untidy Baker Street rooms'...."

Brief reviews of MPI video release of Volume 5 of the Brett/Hardwicke series. "For purists, one of the most admirable aspects of this accomplished series, which initially ran in the mid-'80s, is its scrupulous fidelity to Conan Doyle's Holmes stories." Also comments on Rathbone/Bruce and others. "The succession of Sherlocks to follow - notably Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and John Neville - clung to Rathbone's interpretation. Holmes was cold, brilliant and omniscient. Beginning with Nicholas Meyer's splendid The Seven-Per-Cent Solution...in 1976, a more nuanced Holmes emerged. Nicol Williamson's detective is beset by drug-induced paranoia and nightmares, and he is ably complemented by Robert Duvall as Watson. Williamson and Duvall set a new standard that was almost matched by Christopher Plummer and James Mason as Holmes and Watson in Murder by Decree...three years later. The story of a possible royal involvement in the Jack the Ripper murders is a little muddled, but the leads have enjoyable chemistry. It was left to Brett, who died of a heart attack at age 59 seven years ago, to give us the ideal modern Holmes - cerebral, compassionate and flawed. If you want a different take on Holmes, avoid Gene Wilder's leaden and dumb The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother...released in 1975, and try Disney's amusing riff in The Great Mouse Detective.... The 1986 animated feature posits a parallel world where Sherlock is a mouse with amazing deductive powers. Barry Levinson's 1985 contribution to the genre, Young Sherlock Holmes...does well with the ingenious idea that Holmes and Watson met as schoolboys and cracked their first big case in their teens."

56. Blowen, Michael. "Video Watch." The Boston Globe, May 7, 2000: C9.

"...Fans of Sherlock Holmes can rejoice with the release on Tuesday of "An Evening With Sherlock Holmes." Actually, it should be titled several evenings because this boxed set contains four movies - "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon" (1942), "Woman In Green" (1945), "Terror by Night" (1946), and "Dressed To Kill" (1946). And that's not all. It also includes an interview with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle filmed in 1927 and 30 original radio broadcasts starring the film's leads, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce...."

57. Clark, Mike. "The DVD watch." USA Today, May 12, 2000: E08.

"Though the hoopla for An Evening With Sherlock Holmes (1942-46, FOCUSfilm, unrated, $70) claims the four films in the box set have been restored, the prints look like dupes, and one of them -- 1946's Terror by Night (seven chapters) -- is a truncated 54-minute version. For those who can overlook this, the collection -- which also includes 1942's Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, 1945's Woman in Green and 1946's Dressed to Kill (all unrated and with 12 chapters) -- has its rewards. The Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series of Holmes films remains one of the most enjoyable in Hollywood history. The set includes 30 good-sounding Holmes radio shows from the '40s (with wine commercials), and a rare 1927 on-camera chat with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

58. Nichols, Peter M. "Conan Doyle, On Holmes." The New York Times, May 19, 2000: E1:28.

'''It was really terribly important after the war when all the young men needed contacting,' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says rather breezily on camera during a 10-minute address he delivers on a DVD recently released by Focusfilm, a distributor in Ossining, N.Y. It was 1926, and by his remarks and manner the writer clearly wants to be done with his celebrated creation, the detective Sherlock Holmes, and move on to matters that he considers more serious: psychic experiences and communication with the beyond. The young men he refers to were killed during World War I. Holmes, he seems to imply, would be better off laid to rest himself if only the public would permit it....On the same disc, part of a set of four, is 'Terror by Night,' a Holmes adventure filmed by Universal during the 40's with Basil Rathbone as the detective and Nigel Bruce as Watson....The detective brings off other nice surprises in three other cases on the discs: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon' (1942), 'The Woman in Green' (1945) and 'Dressed to Kill' (1946), which was Rathbone's last Holmes film. By then he had played the role more than 200 times, not only on screen but on the radio in 'The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.'...The movies come from the National Film Museum, a large archive in Bangor, Me., that provides old film to producers and distributors...."

Presents the 'Christian Science Monitor' guide to movies for 1997. An alphabetical listing of the motion pictures released in 1997 with reviews for each one; Includes Fairytale--A True Story. "Two girls snap a photo of fairies in their family's English garden, sparking different responses from interested parties, including the author Arthur Conan Doyle, who believes in supernatural beings, and the magician Harry Houdini, who takes a skeptical view of such matters. Charles Sturridge's fantasy is slow and complicated for very young viewers, but others will enjoy its wholesome story and detailed depiction of the World War I era, not to mention the fairyland scenes, which are truly magical. The strong cast includes Peter O'Toole as the celebrated writer and Harvey Keitel as the world's greatest escape artist....Heartwarming, intricate, marvelous fairy effects."

"The October issue of Vanity Fair featured an essay by Christopher Hitchens about a new film released from Paramount entitled Fairy Tale: A True Story, starring Harvey Keitel as Harry Houdini and Peter O'Toole as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle...."

6. Cunneen, Joseph. "An absorbing girls' story, two plots less convincing." National Catholic Reporter 34, no. 5 (1997): 18.

Reviews three motion pictures including 'Fairy Tale: A True Story'. Includes reference to Doyle and Holmes. "...Even better, 'Fairy Tale' follows the case on which it was based by having Gardner pass them on to Arthur Conan Doyle (Peter O'Toole) who, known to all as the creator of the super-logical Sherlock Holmes, had lost his son in the war and become an ardent spiritualist. Doyle in turn was a close friend of the skeptical Houdini, who is shown exposing a seance as an elaborate hoax...."

7. Johnson, Brian D. "The sacred and profane." Maclean's 110, no. 36 (1997): 62.

Looks at films to be showcased by the annual Toronto International Film Festival that runs through September 13, 1997. Atom Egoyan's 'The Sweet Hereafter'; Jean-Jacques Annaud's 'Seven Years in Tibet'; The special festival program on indigenous Balkan cinema. Includes a reference to Doyle. "...The issue of trust between adults and children crops up again and again--in films haunted by a yearning sense of parental responsibility towards children shining with innocence and wisdom. In The Sweet Hereafter, a teenage girl (Sarah Polley) is jarred out of an incestuous relationship with her father. Seven Years in Tibet focuses on an 11-year-old Dalai Lama (Jamyang Wangchuk) who learns the ways of the world from an Austrian climber (Pitt). And in The Mirror, Iranian director Jafar Panahi's sequel to his impressive debut, The White Balloon, a young girl gets lost in the street among insensitive adults. But British director Charles Sturridge offers the strangest glimpse into a child's imagination with Fairytale--A True Story, based on the 1917 controversy over two English girls who produced snapshots of fairies in a summer garden that photographic experts could not dispute. Peter O'Toole plays Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who jumps to the children's defence, while Harvey Keitel plays escape artist Harry Houdini, who condemns their claim as a fraud...."

Includes reference to Doyle. "...Controversy erupts when the girls produce photographs of the fairies; they eventually attract the attention of celebrities Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Peter O'Toole) and Harry Houdini (Harvey Keitel)....'Frances was completely adamant that the last photograph was true,' he says, noting that the first four images were achieved with cardboard cutouts. The fifth 'looks like a double exposure . . . But [Frances' daughter] Christine Lynch showed me a blowup of it, and there are three faces hidden in the grass. What's interesting is that these were the plates that Conan Doyle had given the children--they were marked, so they couldn't be fiddled with. They were never able to find [evidence of tampering].'"

"Sherlock Holmes, the pipe-smoking Victorian super-sleuth with a penchant for drugs, is to become the subject of a face-off by two Hollywood studios which are both bringing out films about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's literary hero. In one camp is Columbia Pictures, which has announced the making of an as yet untitled comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen as Holmes and Will Ferrell as his sidekick, Watson. Squaring up to Columbia is Warner Brothers, whose Guy Ritchie-directed project Sherlock Holmes, which will portray the legendary detective as a punching, sword-jousting comic book-style adventure hero...."

Ritchie is best known for his violent 1998 hit Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels but has had little success since. The Hollywood studio Warner Bros is backing his attempt to repackage Holmes from his tweedy, cerebral image into a sword-wielding fist-fighter with a short fuse. In Los Angeles last week, an executive at Warner said it was looking for a 'grungy' Holmes. 'This is Sherlock Holmes as a street-fighting man, ready to take on man, monsters, whatever the world can throw at him.' The studio hopes to release the film, to be called Sherlock Holmes, in 2010.

That is, Robert Downey Jr., playing Holmes in the forthcoming film 'Sherlock Holmes,' was engaged in hand-to-hand, foot-to-stomach combat with a very big and very bad villain (Robert Maillet). Bam! Pow! Ouch! Both characters would end up knocked out on the floor, along with Holmes's trusty sidekick, Dr. John Watson, played by Jude Law. Filmed in December, the scene presented a sharp corrective to the popular cinematic view of Holmes, at least the one propagated by the old films featuring the wonderfully named British actor Basil Rathbone...."

19. Steinberg, Jacques. "Robert Downey Jr. To Play Sherlock Holmes." New York Times, July 11, 2008: 3.

"In the first role he has signed up for since 'Iron Man,' Robert Downey Jr., left, will forsake his high-tech suit for a woolen cloak and cap. Mr. Downey has agreed to play the lead role in the film 'Sherlock Holmes,' which will be directed by Guy Ritchie for Warner Brothers, Variety reported. The film is scheduled to begin shooting in October, with a screenplay by Anthony Peckham based on the detective stories of Arthur Conan Doyle and on a comic book, also called 'Sherlock Holmes.' Most of the movie will be filmed in London. In the role, which Variety said would plumb Holmes's brawn as well as his brains, Mr. Downey will have some competition. Columbia Pictures is also preparing a movie based on Holmes, this one a comedy with Sacha Baron Cohen as the title character and Will Ferrell as his sidekick, Dr. Watson. [Abstract from publisher]

The cast and crew first wondered if they had a mystery fit for legendary detective Holmes on their hands when Robert Downey Jr was knocked out by a 7ft wrestler. Then yesterday, he and Jude Law, 35 -- who plays his sidekick Dr Watson -- had to flee the set with Ritchie when a petrol tanker exploded in a fireball...."

21. Wloszczyna, Susan. "Sherlock Holmes? Ritchie's on the case." USA Today, Aug 22, 2008: 8B.

Information on an upcoming Holmes movie. "Guy Ritchie's latest gangster yarn, RocknRolla, won't even be in theaters for another six weeks, but he already has turned his attentions to his next project, a version of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes for contemporary tastes. 'It will be a very big production, visceral and intellectual,' Ritchie says. 'His brilliance will percolate into the action.' The expected 2010 Warner release will be set in the olden days, he says, but the emphasis will be as much on Holmes' physical prowess as it is on his keen powers of deduction. 'His intellect was as much of a curse as it was a blessing,' Ritchie says. 'He was a deeply layered character.' No word on the villain yet, but there will be a love interest based on Conan Doyle's Irene Adler. Casting is expected to be finished in six or so weeks. Ritchie already has been lucky to snag Robert Downey Jr., hot off of this summer's Iron Man and Tropic Thunder, as his lead. 'His wife, Susan, was a producer on RocknRolla, and he was one of the first people who saw it and was a big fan,' the filmmaker explains. 'He wanted to do something together, and this was a natural.' As for Downey's English accent, 'it's flawless.' Ritchie has no worries about producer Judd Apatow's competing Sherlock Holmes with Sacha Baron Cohen. As he says: 'They don't even have a script yet. We are way ahead.'

Brief note on "Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking." "Television viewers feel snugly at home in the fog-filled streets of Sherlock Holmes' London. The fog, widely reviled at the time, is a crucial part of the chilling atmosphere. Even if nothing is happening, it seems that it might at any moment, and if anything does happen, it will be bad. We meet Holmes, icily played by Rupert Everett, in the middle of an extended drugs bender."

7. Cubitt, Allan. "Holmes is where the heart is." Daily Mail (London), December 11, 2004: 6.

"Although I read and hugely enjoyed The Hound Of The Baskervilles, and many other Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, Holmes is actually a very adult character. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the great detective as a manic-depressive with a brooding darkness within him. And that complexity is one of the reasons Holmes has become a classic role on stage and screen. The late Jeremy Brett was Sherlock Holmes on TV for a decade, and described the role as tougher than Hamlet or Macbeth. Brett became so obsessed with playing Holmes that he was once discovered outside Doyle's former London house, begging to be released from the spirit of the master detective. In the 1940s, Basil Rathbone made the role his own in radio broadcasts and Hollywood films. For Christmas 2002, I adapted The Hound Of The Baskervilles for BBC television with Richard Roxburgh playing Holmes. This Christmas, my offering is Sherlock Holmes And The Case Of The Silk Stocking, with Rupert Everett in the lead role. He is a fascinating choice...."

8. James, Martin. "Sherlock Holmes And The Case Of The Silk Stocking." Sunday Times (London), December 26, 2004: 86.

"...Rupert Everett makes an excellent Holmes, with Ian Hart a sterling Doctor Watson and Neil Dudgeon an amusing Inspector Lestrade in this melodramatic story of the hunt for a serial killer. Though not based on a Conan Doyle story, Allan Cubitt's wholly original screenplay does remain true to the spirit of the canon...."

9. Jones, Alison. "Culture: Watching the Detective; Rupert Everett Tells Alison Jones He was Born to Play Sherlock Holmes." Birmingham Post, December 23, 2004: 10.

"'Actors always have certain characters they think they should play. Most people think it is Hamlet; I think it is Sherlock Holmes,' admits Rupert Everett, who gets his wish on Boxing Day when he plays the legendary 'tec in The Case of the Silk Stocking. He certainly looks the part. Long, lean and elegant with a kind of sardonic detachment which perfectly suits a man who is an observer rather than a participant of life...."

10. Keal, Graham. "Culture: Moving Tribute to Pete and Dud; Sherlock Holmes may be Stuck in a Pea Souper, but Don't Risk Missing." Birmingham Post, December 22, 2004: 11.

"...Another outing for Sherlock Holmes sounds rather conventional in comparison, but BBC1's Boxing Day offering, Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking...is actually rather wonderful. Rupert Everett is Holmes in this entirely new story by Allan Cubitt - it's not based on any of Conan Doyle's books. Everettgives his brooding, narcotics-abusing Holmes a marvellously arrogant touch, and he's brave enough not to go out of his way to make Holmes likeable...."

11. Kington, Miles. "All Roads Lead to Baker Street for Writers." The Independent (London), December 31, 2004: 27.

"On Boxing Day on BBC-TV they showed a Sherlock Holmes adventure called The Case of the Silk Stocking, starring Rupert Everett as the great detective. If you are puzzled not to recognise the name of this Holmes story, puzzle no longer. It was written by Alan Cubitt, and although my wife and I thought Everett very good in the role, and enjoyed some of the goings on, the story was shaping up quite preposterously by the time some visitors rang our door bell, and we missed the final five minutes and never found out what happened. What I was not shocked by was the fact that anyone should attempt to concoct a new story based on 221b Baker Street, even if it did involve inventing a completely new fiancee for Dr Watson. Because although it may seem to be sacrilege to imagine you can do the job as well as Conan Doyle, it must also be one of the most universal instincts among writers....Even Bert Coules has done it. He has adapted all the Holmes stories and the four novels for Radio 4, starring Clive Merrison as Holmes. That's 50 stories or more. And when Mr Coules had no more Holmes yarns to adapt, how did he use the skill and knowledge he had gained from vicariously living in Baker Street for so long? Why, he overcame his respect for Conan Doyle and concocted a clutch of brand- new Holmes stories of his own. I heard some of them on Radio 4, and they weren't bad, even if they were slightly far-fetched and over- wrought...."

"The omens for this year's Sherlock Holmes festive special are scarcely encouraging. The prospect of using an 'original' Holmes mystery by TV playwright Allan Cubbitt, rather than picking a Conan Doyle original, is a worry for any aficionado. Nor does Rupert Everett...seem a great choice to play the great detective: a bit too foppish and slight, surely. Holmes should be all brooding menace and frowns. Such prejudices are misplaced, however, for The Case of the Silk Stocking turns out to be a real treat. Everett is especially convincing, turning in a fine, dark performance..."

14. Pierce, Andrew. "Rupert Everett as Sherlock Holmes." The Times (London), August 24, 2004: 7.

"Rupert Everett is filming Sherlock Holmes, minus his trademark deerstalker and pipe. 'The character is not described in the book in this way. It was one actor, Basil Rathbone I think his name was, who invented the hat and the pipe, which have wrongly been associated with the character ever since.'"

16. Rampton, James. "Arts: Not our Ideal Holmes." The Independent (London), December 16, 2004: 10.

"Sherlock Holmes is a national treasure, a literary character who has long enjoyed 'untouchable' status. He arouses especially strong passions among the purists who feel deeply possessive about 'their' man. Mess with him at your peril. So the makers of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking, BBC1's radical new take on their hero, may be diving for cover after the film goes out on Boxing Day. Ian Hart, who plays the sleuth's companion and chronicler, Dr John Watson, in this new Holmes story written by Allan Cubitt, is certainly bracing himself for some flak from Arthur Conan Doyle devotees...."

17. Ramsey, Terry. "Pick of the Day." The Evening Standard (London), December 24, 2004: 42.

Review of Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking. "Was there ever such a brooding, handsome and strangely sexy Sherlock Holmes as this new version? The great Victorian detective is usually portrayed as an academic and austere individual. But in the hands of British Hollywood star Rupert Everett (right) he maintains these qualities while gaining a hint of another fictional hero, the dark and romantic Heathcliffe. Albeit a version of Heathcliffe who wears a dapper hat and polished shoes...."

Brief review of "Sherlock Holmes and the Deadly Necklace," Orbit Screen Classics, 12, 1962. "'Sherlock Holmes, Detective,' says the nameplate above the Baker Street doorbell. Inside live Christopher Lee (just right for pipe, deerstalker and logical reasoning) and Thorley Walters's bumbling Dr Watson. But this is a German film, dubbed into English by unknown Americans, none of whom can pronounce Moriarty. The story is not canonical, but there's fun of a kind watching the hunt for an old necklace of Cleopatra's in a vaguely 1920s London...."

4. Clark, Mike. "The DVD watch." USA Today, May 12, 2000: E08.

"Though the hoopla for An Evening With Sherlock Holmes (1942-46, FOCUSfilm, unrated, $70) claims the four films in the box set have been restored, the prints look like dupes, and one of them -- 1946's Terror by Night (seven chapters) -- is a truncated 54-minute version. For those who can overlook this, the collection -- which also includes 1942's Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, 1945's Woman in Green and 1946's Dressed to Kill (all unrated and with 12 chapters) -- has its rewards. The Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series of Holmes films remains one of the most enjoyable in Hollywood history. The set includes 30 good-sounding Holmes radio shows from the '40s (with wine commercials), and a rare 1927 on-camera chat with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

5. Nichols, Peter M. "Conan Doyle, On Holmes." The New York Times, May 19, 2000: E1:28.

'''It was really terribly important after the war when all the young men needed contacting,' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says rather breezily on camera during a 10-minute address he delivers on a DVD recently released by Focusfilm, a distributor in Ossining, N.Y. It was 1926, and by his remarks and manner the writer clearly wants to be done with his celebrated creation, the detective Sherlock Holmes, and move on to matters that he considers more serious: psychic experiences and communication with the beyond. The young men he refers to were killed during World War I. Holmes, he seems to imply, would be better off laid to rest himself if only the public would permit it....On the same disc, part of a set of four, is 'Terror by Night,' a Holmes adventure filmed by Universal during the 40's with Basil Rathbone as the detective and Nigel Bruce as Watson....The detective brings off other nice surprises in three other cases on the discs: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon' (1942), 'The Woman in Green' (1945) and 'Dressed to Kill' (1946), which was Rathbone's last Holmes film. By then he had played the role more than 200 times, not only on screen but on the radio in 'The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.'...The movies come from the National Film Museum, a large archive in Bangor, Me., that provides old film to producers and distributors...."

13. Jancovich, Mark. "Female monsters: Horror, the 'Femme Fatale' and World War II." European Journal of American Culture 27, no. 2 (2008): 133-149.

"The article is an examination of critical reception of the figure of the female monster as it emerged from the horror film during World War II, and it seeks to analyse discourses through which this figure was understood during the period of their initial release." Includes multiple references to Holmes. "...Everlyn Ankers, a woman who signified modern, independent femininity and, in the previous year, she had even helped Holmes and Watson defeat the Nazi’s in Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (1942)....Alternatively, the Sherlock Holmes series saw Holmes pitted against a series of deadly female masterminds, most particularly his adversary in The Spider Woman (1944). The New York Journal-American even referred to its female lead, Gale Sondergaard, as an actress who is 'always good as a femme fatale' (Blackford 1944: 493), as did the New York Post, which referred to her schemes as 'diabolical', the work of 'a 'female Moriarity,' a 'femme fatale' (Winsten 1944a: 494). There was even the sense that many reviewers felt that the film had refreshed a tired series. While the New York Newspaper PM claimed that Holmes’s 'current antagonist, the Spider Woman . . . is for my money a much shiftier and certainly a much niftier trick than was Prof. Moriarity of other days' (McManus 1944: 493), the New York Journal American claimed: 'Inasmuch as the current instalment of the master-sleuth serial is above the average in plausibility, suspense and interest and has been really quite well presented, it should do nothing to spoil your appetite for future releases' (Blackford 1944: 493). If these women were not bored, self-centred housewives like Phyllis in Double Indemnity, they are also far more active than the classic femme fatale, plotting and executing their own schemes, rather than simply seducing others into acting for them....These female monster movies continued into 1945 with Holmes encountering more female threats in the form of The Woman in Green (1945) and Universal completing its third in the Captive Wild Woman films, Jungle Captive (1945)...."

14. Kehr, Dave. "Critic's Choice: New DVDs." New York Times, July 4, 2006: E5.

The article reviews several films released on DVD format including "Petulia," directed by Richard Lester, starring Julie Christie, "Cannibal Holocaust," directed by Ruggero Deodato and "Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror."

15. Koldys, Mark. "Guide to Records: SALTER." American Record Guide 63, no. 4 (2000): 180.

Reviews several music recordings performed by the Slovak Radio Symphony with William T. Stromberg. 'Ghost of Frankenstein,' composed by Hans Salter; 'Sherlock Holmes & the Voice of Terror,' by Skinner. "...Yet Skinner, who is overdue for a serious reevaluation, wrote in a neo-romantic European style that meshed so well with Salter's that the pair often collaborated at Universal. The music for the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes series is possibly Skinner's best-known work, given the popularity these films have sustained over half a century. Along with Son of Frankenstein this is some of Skinner's most adroit writing, and the enduring themes (especially the call-to-arms Main Title) never fail to inspire...."

1. Pollak, Michael. "F.Y.I." The New York Times, January 2, 2005: 14.2.

Questions from readers. "Q. As we Sherlock Holmes fans approach the anniversary of the master's birth, I started wondering: Did Sherlock Holmes ever visit New York? A. Only in the movies. The screen's most-filmed detective came to Manhattan in ''Sherlock Holmes in New York,'' a 1976 pastiche that included Roger Moore as Holmes, Patrick Macnee as Watson, John Huston as the evil Moriarty and Charlotte Rampling as Irene Adler. The fanciful plot has Moriarty seeking world domination by stealing Lower Manhattan's gold supply, and kidnapping Irene Adler's son, who may or may not be Holmes's."

11. Clark, Mike. "New on DVD." USA Today, November 7, 2003: E09.

Brief review of "Sherlock Holmes in Washington." "Universal's Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce Holmes series delighted over and over on early-'60s TV, and some of the most amusing entries were time-machine affairs in which Holmes and Watson got involved in World War II espionage. Check out Rathbone's weird hair curls, some fractured Washington, D.C., geography....Also new: Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror and Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (both 1942), plus Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943). Like Washington, they were preserved by the UCLA Film and Television Archive and look their best in years."

Bennett., Producer: Jake Lamb.; "Sherlock Holmes and his ample bodied sidekick, Dr. Watson, are hired to protect a rare duck egg sized diamond of near priceless value. There is a reason for hiring the world's greatest detective because as soon as Holmes is on the job, someone tries to steal the valuable gem and kills an innocent young lad in the process..."

44. Blowen, Michael. "Video Watch." The Boston Globe, May 7, 2000: C9.

"...Fans of Sherlock Holmes can rejoice with the release on Tuesday of "An Evening With Sherlock Holmes." Actually, it should be titled several evenings because this boxed set contains four movies - "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon" (1942), "Woman In Green" (1945), "Terror by Night" (1946), and "Dressed To Kill" (1946). And that's not all. It also includes an interview with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle filmed in 1927 and 30 original radio broadcasts starring the film's leads, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce...."

45. Clark, Mike. "The DVD watch." USA Today, May 12, 2000: E08.

"Though the hoopla for An Evening With Sherlock Holmes (1942-46, FOCUSfilm, unrated, $70) claims the four films in the box set have been restored, the prints look like dupes, and one of them -- 1946's Terror by Night (seven chapters) -- is a truncated 54-minute version. For those who can overlook this, the collection -- which also includes 1942's Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, 1945's Woman in Green and 1946's Dressed to Kill (all unrated and with 12 chapters) -- has its rewards. The Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series of Holmes films remains one of the most enjoyable in Hollywood history. The set includes 30 good-sounding Holmes radio shows from the '40s (with wine commercials), and a rare 1927 on-camera chat with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

46. Nichols, Peter M. "Conan Doyle, On Holmes." The New York Times, May 19, 2000: E1:28.

'''It was really terribly important after the war when all the young men needed contacting,' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says rather breezily on camera during a 10-minute address he delivers on a DVD recently released by Focusfilm, a distributor in Ossining, N.Y. It was 1926, and by his remarks and manner the writer clearly wants to be done with his celebrated creation, the detective Sherlock Holmes, and move on to matters that he considers more serious: psychic experiences and communication with the beyond. The young men he refers to were killed during World War I. Holmes, he seems to imply, would be better off laid to rest himself if only the public would permit it....On the same disc, part of a set of four, is 'Terror by Night,' a Holmes adventure filmed by Universal during the 40's with Basil Rathbone as the detective and Nigel Bruce as Watson....The detective brings off other nice surprises in three other cases on the discs: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon' (1942), 'The Woman in Green' (1945) and 'Dressed to Kill' (1946), which was Rathbone's last Holmes film. By then he had played the role more than 200 times, not only on screen but on the radio in 'The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.'...The movies come from the National Film Museum, a large archive in Bangor, Me., that provides old film to producers and distributors...."

"When the American Sir Henry Baskerville (Matt Day) inherits the curse of his family along with the ancient manor, Baskerville Hall, the obvious man to help him with his problem is Sherlock Holmes. It may have come as some surprise, though, to find Holmes being played by an Australian whose most famous role was as the insanely jealous Duke in Baz Luhrmann's musical spectacular Moulin Rouge! An odd choice maybe, but Richard Roxburgh proves a good one, perilously locating his detective just the right side of the line that divides genius and madness...."

Given the recent expansion of the Registry's dictate about the type of films that are eligible, the entries are quite varied in terms of style, genre, and subject matter: They include silent pictures such as The Lost World (1925), based on the novel by Arthur Conan Doyle; works that evidence the Registry's eclectic taste, such as Dead Birds (1964), an ethnographic study of a tribe in Western New Guinea; and more modern fare, such as Dennis Hopper's counterculture classic Easy Rider (1969).

22. "Restorations." Cinema Journal 38, no. 2 (1999): 118-119.

George Eastman House has sponsored the restoration of the 1925 First National version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel The Lost World. From 8,000 to 8,500 surviving feet of footage have been reassembled to resemble the original as closely as possible. In addition, tinting has been done, and new intertitles have been created using a script. First shown in 1997, the restoration is being exhibited in various specialized venues for silent-movie fans worldwide.

23. Bradbury, Ray. Dinosaur tales. New York: Barnes & Noble, 1996.

Scuttlebutt Jul 1996; "A fine collection of stories by Ray Bradbury, illustrated by Gahan Wilson, Steranko, and others; the book was first published by Byron Preiss in 1983, and is now available in a new edition. Bradbury dedicated the book to Willis O'Brien, 'who animated the beasts in 'The Lost World' in 1925, and so changed my life, forever.' Ray Harryhausen tells in his foreword of seeing the same film when he was five; he worked with Bradbury on 'The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms' (based on the story 'The Fog Horn', which is included in the book.")

Includes a passing reference to Doyle. "...In late 1915 Brown was approached by Willis O'Brien and Herbert Dawley, amateur film-makers and pioneers of stop-motion animation, who wanted to recreate battling dinosaurs on screen. The result was a jerkily animated T. Rex in the 1919 movie The Ghost of Slumber Mountain, followed by a small walk-on part in the screen adaptation of Conan Doyle's The Lost World...."

Brief reviews of new releases including one related to Doyle. The Lost World. 1925/1960, Fox, unrated, $20 Though Fox isn't ballyhooing it, the bonus inclusion of Willis O'Brien's original movie is what makes this twofer worth it. The pioneer effects maestro also was the genius behind King Kong in 1933. Back story: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's yarn deals with dinosaurs amid a jungle expedition. The '25 version offers Bessie Love (1929's Oscar winner for The Broadway Melody), Lewis Stone (Andy Hardy's judge father) and Wallace Beery. In 1960, the year after its box-office smash Journey to the Center of the Earth, Fox mounted a CinemaScope/color remake that plunked Jill St. John into the Amazon with Michael Rennie, Fernando Lamas, The Fly's David Hedison, tight pink Capri pants and Frosty the Poodle -- a nutty, nutty mix that heads deep into the Amazon.

Brief review of "The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes" (PG, Billy Wilder, 125mins). "Made in 1970, when the great director was in his sixties, this 'Sherlock Holmes investigates the Loch Ness monster' yarn was butchered down from its three-hour length by the studio, which then threw away all the discarded negatives. Even in its shortened form, though, it remains a Holmes classic. Robert Stephens stars. Limited release."

Review of "Have you seen...?" by David Thomson. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...Actually, the account is fairly typical of Thomson's method throughout, since he mixes everything into his analyses--production histories, anecdotes, surmises about small but significant failings, and gossip. Jean Simmons, we're told, can be seen smiling secretly at the camera in Spartacus, hoping that someone else is in on the joke; Billy Wilder's nagging on The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes drove the star Robert Stephens to attempt suicide...."

Offers a look at musical concertos for motion pictures in the United States. Overview of composers for American films with a focus on Miklos Rozsa. Includes a reference to Holmes and a photo of Wilder and Rozsa. "...When Hollywood director Billy Wilder first heard Rozsa's composition, he liked it so much he decided to construct a film around it. The result was The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970). The composer remodelled his concerto to the needs of the film. The first movement pointed up the introspective character of the cocaine-addicted, violin-playing detective; the beautiful slow movement proved ideal for highlighting the relationship between Holmes and the spy Gabrielle; and the tense, dynamic third movement set the mood as the film moved towards its dramatic Loch Ness climax. Never short of inspiration, Rozsa then added a march - 'Elgarian' in spirit - to accompany the arrival of Queen Victoria at Balmoral. Finally, as if to put his personal stamp on it all, he makes an appearance in the film, conducting the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of Swan Lake."

One is a model of the monster that was sunk during the filming of the 1970 film The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes. The other is Wetherell's creation. Hearing a groundskeeper approach, Wetherell and his crew quickly sunk their replica in the loch on that day in 1934. It has never been recovered."

It is the cabinet on the left as you enter the new Writers Guild Foundation library in Los Angeles. Here, locked behind glass on two shelves, sits a leatherbound set of Billy Wilder's screenplays.

In between are the masterpieces: Double Indemnity, Some Like It Hot, Sunset Boulevard, The Apartment (all included in the current Wilder retrospective at the National Film Theatre)....I find it telling that the most creatively successful of Wilder's later films, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), was set in the past.

"Robert Stephens, Colin Blakely (1970,Image, PG-13, $59.99) Depending on your perspective, Billy Wilder's revisionist take on literature's most famous detective was a theatrical flop either because philistines at United Artists cut the film nearly by half, or audiences weren't ready for a wise-cracking, practical joke-playing Holmes. In any event, this new disc edition provides a glimpse of what might have been: Following the wide-screen but cut version of the film, it presents one deleted sequence that's almost complete (the sound has been lost, but subtitles are appended), as well as the entire audio track of another missing episode, the original shooting script, and various odds and ends including an interview with film editor Ernest Walter. It's a tantalizing coda to what is--even in this truncated form--a vastly entertaining romp. B+"

Passing reference to Holmes. "In his most famous work, the Great Bear, Simon Patterson turns the stations of the London Tube map into stops in the memory of popular culture....There is something quite refreshing about this juxtaposition of order and randomness, and it happens frequently when Patterson talks about his work. A discussion of the Tube map can lead to a digression about the drug habits of Sherlock Holmes, false memory, and the merits of Star Trek. The connection between these things is the writer Nicholas Meyer, who bought The Great Bear, and wrote the screenplay for the 1976 film, The Seven Per Cent Solution, in which Sherlock Holmes travelled to Vienna to consult Freud about his cocaine habit...."

6. Shapiro, Harry. "From Chaplin to Charlie--cocaine, Hollywood and the movies." Drugs: Education, Prevention & Policy 9, no. 2 (2002): 133-141.

Throughout the history of cinema, the use of drugs such as opiates and marijuana has been consistently condemned or has passed through distinct phases from opprobrium to celebration. But because of both its image and functionality within the film industry, the framing of cocaine use has been more ambivalent and fluctuating. The period prior to World War II saw cocaine use portrayed both in comic situations and in so-called exploitation films which more closely mirrored sensational press coverage where cocaine was viewed as the 'gateway' drug to opiates. Cocaine largely disappeared from the recreational drugs scene until the late 1960s. Since then, films as diverse as Easy Rider (1969), Annie Hall (1977), Scarface (1983) and Clean and Sober (1988) have framed cocaine use and dealing variously as comic, heroic, glamorous, as well as damaging. This contrasts with crack cocaine in the context of black cinema in the 1980s and 1990s where settings of violence and death predominate. With the cocaine cartels as the focus, Traffic (2000) questions for the first time in a Hollywood movie, the efficacy of the 'war on drugs' while the cocaine trafficking film Blow (2001) returns to a more traditional Hollywood view of vice punished. [Abstract from author] Includes references to Holmes. "...There was a problem of squaring the circle between a drug that appeared to give the user energy and vitality--while at the same time being addictive, the model for which was the opium. In fact, films often confused the effects of the two drugs--both classified as narcotics in US drug law. This was demonstrated in one of the many Sherlock Holmes films from the silent era where the detective takes coke and dreams the opium dreams of the Orient...There were some coded hints that all might not be well: perhaps in Nicol Williamson's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes' runaway cocaine paranoia in Seven Percent Solution (1976) or Diane Keaton's drug-fuelled neurosis in Looking for Mr Goodbar (1977). But this was contrasted by the famous scene in Woody Allen's Annie Hall (again 1977 and again Diane Keaton) where he sneezes $2000 worth of cocaine into the air...."

9. Ellen, Barbara. "TV movie of the week." The Times (London), June 29, 2000: 2.

"...Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman (1944)...was the seventh Sherlock Holmes film, and one of the silliest. In this one he fakes his own death, dresses up as the most unconvincing Indian seen on television since It Ain't Half Hot Mum, and investigates the death of a bunch of men found in their pyjamas. Other than that, the 'murder weapon' is a venomous spider, and Holmes's trusty sidekick, Watson, almost shoots him, thinking he's Hitler. Confused? You should be...."

10. Jancovich, Mark. "Female monsters: Horror, the 'Femme Fatale' and World War II." European Journal of American Culture 27, no. 2 (2008): 133-149.

"The article is an examination of critical reception of the figure of the female monster as it emerged from the horror film during World War II, and it seeks to analyse discourses through which this figure was understood during the period of their initial release." Includes multiple references to Holmes. "...Everlyn Ankers, a woman who signified modern, independent femininity and, in the previous year, she had even helped Holmes and Watson defeat the Nazi’s in Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (1942)....Alternatively, the Sherlock Holmes series saw Holmes pitted against a series of deadly female masterminds, most particularly his adversary in The Spider Woman (1944). The New York Journal-American even referred to its female lead, Gale Sondergaard, as an actress who is 'always good as a femme fatale' (Blackford 1944: 493), as did the New York Post, which referred to her schemes as 'diabolical', the work of 'a 'female Moriarity,' a 'femme fatale' (Winsten 1944a: 494). There was even the sense that many reviewers felt that the film had refreshed a tired series. While the New York Newspaper PM claimed that Holmes’s 'current antagonist, the Spider Woman . . . is for my money a much shiftier and certainly a much niftier trick than was Prof. Moriarity of other days' (McManus 1944: 493), the New York Journal American claimed: 'Inasmuch as the current instalment of the master-sleuth serial is above the average in plausibility, suspense and interest and has been really quite well presented, it should do nothing to spoil your appetite for future releases' (Blackford 1944: 493). If these women were not bored, self-centred housewives like Phyllis in Double Indemnity, they are also far more active than the classic femme fatale, plotting and executing their own schemes, rather than simply seducing others into acting for them....These female monster movies continued into 1945 with Holmes encountering more female threats in the form of The Woman in Green (1945) and Universal completing its third in the Captive Wild Woman films, Jungle Captive (1945)...."

Presents updates on the motion picture industry as of June 2001. Acquisition of nitrate film elements from Warner Bros. by the UCLA Film and Television Archive; Decision of Shaw Brothers Ltd. of Hong Kong to sell its archive of original films to media magnate T. Ananda Krishnan of Malaysia; Development of several projects related to cinema by the Museum of Jurassic Technology in Culver City, California. Includes a reference to Holmes, Basil Rathbone, and Nigel Bruce. "...Warner Bros. has initiated the completion of a preservation project through the UCLA Film and Television Archive that was begun by Hugh Hefner. Funding from Hefner helped preserve six films in Universal's Sherlock Holmes series that starred Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson: Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942), Sherlock Holmes and the Spider Woman (1944), The Scarlet Claw (1944), The Pearl of Death (1944), The Woman in Green (1945), and Terror by Night (1946). Warner Bros., which recently acquired the rights to the series, has already funded the preservation of Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943) and The House of Fear (1945) and has committed to funding the preservation of the remaining Universal Holmes films: Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (1942), Sherlock Holmes in Washington (1943), Dressed to Kill (1946), and Pursuit to Algiers (1945)."

53. Blowen, Michael. "Video Watch." The Boston Globe, May 7, 2000: C9.

"...Fans of Sherlock Holmes can rejoice with the release on Tuesday of "An Evening With Sherlock Holmes." Actually, it should be titled several evenings because this boxed set contains four movies - "Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon" (1942), "Woman In Green" (1945), "Terror by Night" (1946), and "Dressed To Kill" (1946). And that's not all. It also includes an interview with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle filmed in 1927 and 30 original radio broadcasts starring the film's leads, Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce...."

54. Clark, Mike. "The DVD watch." USA Today, May 12, 2000: E08.

"Though the hoopla for An Evening With Sherlock Holmes (1942-46, FOCUSfilm, unrated, $70) claims the four films in the box set have been restored, the prints look like dupes, and one of them -- 1946's Terror by Night (seven chapters) -- is a truncated 54-minute version. For those who can overlook this, the collection -- which also includes 1942's Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon, 1945's Woman in Green and 1946's Dressed to Kill (all unrated and with 12 chapters) -- has its rewards. The Basil Rathbone-Nigel Bruce series of Holmes films remains one of the most enjoyable in Hollywood history. The set includes 30 good-sounding Holmes radio shows from the '40s (with wine commercials), and a rare 1927 on-camera chat with Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

55. Jancovich, Mark. "Female monsters: Horror, the 'Femme Fatale' and World War II." European Journal of American Culture 27, no. 2 (2008): 133-149.

"The article is an examination of critical reception of the figure of the female monster as it emerged from the horror film during World War II, and it seeks to analyse discourses through which this figure was understood during the period of their initial release." Includes multiple references to Holmes. "...Everlyn Ankers, a woman who signified modern, independent femininity and, in the previous year, she had even helped Holmes and Watson defeat the Nazi’s in Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (1942)....Alternatively, the Sherlock Holmes series saw Holmes pitted against a series of deadly female masterminds, most particularly his adversary in The Spider Woman (1944). The New York Journal-American even referred to its female lead, Gale Sondergaard, as an actress who is 'always good as a femme fatale' (Blackford 1944: 493), as did the New York Post, which referred to her schemes as 'diabolical', the work of 'a 'female Moriarity,' a 'femme fatale' (Winsten 1944a: 494). There was even the sense that many reviewers felt that the film had refreshed a tired series. While the New York Newspaper PM claimed that Holmes’s 'current antagonist, the Spider Woman . . . is for my money a much shiftier and certainly a much niftier trick than was Prof. Moriarity of other days' (McManus 1944: 493), the New York Journal American claimed: 'Inasmuch as the current instalment of the master-sleuth serial is above the average in plausibility, suspense and interest and has been really quite well presented, it should do nothing to spoil your appetite for future releases' (Blackford 1944: 493). If these women were not bored, self-centred housewives like Phyllis in Double Indemnity, they are also far more active than the classic femme fatale, plotting and executing their own schemes, rather than simply seducing others into acting for them....These female monster movies continued into 1945 with Holmes encountering more female threats in the form of The Woman in Green (1945) and Universal completing its third in the Captive Wild Woman films, Jungle Captive (1945)...."

56. Nichols, Peter M. "Conan Doyle, On Holmes." The New York Times, May 19, 2000: E1:28.

'''It was really terribly important after the war when all the young men needed contacting,' Sir Arthur Conan Doyle says rather breezily on camera during a 10-minute address he delivers on a DVD recently released by Focusfilm, a distributor in Ossining, N.Y. It was 1926, and by his remarks and manner the writer clearly wants to be done with his celebrated creation, the detective Sherlock Holmes, and move on to matters that he considers more serious: psychic experiences and communication with the beyond. The young men he refers to were killed during World War I. Holmes, he seems to imply, would be better off laid to rest himself if only the public would permit it....On the same disc, part of a set of four, is 'Terror by Night,' a Holmes adventure filmed by Universal during the 40's with Basil Rathbone as the detective and Nigel Bruce as Watson....The detective brings off other nice surprises in three other cases on the discs: 'Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon' (1942), 'The Woman in Green' (1945) and 'Dressed to Kill' (1946), which was Rathbone's last Holmes film. By then he had played the role more than 200 times, not only on screen but on the radio in 'The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.'...The movies come from the National Film Museum, a large archive in Bangor, Me., that provides old film to producers and distributors...."

For Kingsley, Thunderbirds and Without a Clue serve as a reminder to audiences (also, he hopes, to producers) that he can be funny on screen.

"...'Twister,' opening this Friday (summer starts early this year), is the latest offspring of the marriage between Hollywood and Silicon Valley. A long, long time ago--1977--'Star Wars' begat the new era of fantastic effects. Matte paintings and miniatures had been around for generations, but George Lucas's crew taught a computer how to play nice with a camera, so that spaceships, planets and other elements could be added seamlessly to the same shot. In 1982, 'Star Trek II' produced the first sequence ever generated by a computer--the creation of a planet. Three years later came the first 3-D digital character--the 'stained-glass man' in 'Young Sherlock Holmes.' Then came the computer-graphics (CG) revolution: the pseudopod slithering through 'Abyss,' the metallic cyborg in 'Terminator 2' and the T. rex that razed 'Jurassic Park....'"

"...Since the beginning of motion pictures, moviemakers have maxed out technology to make fantasy look real. Early films like 1902's Le Voyage dans la Lune used simple trick photography. These days, the best tool is a computer workstation. In the past five years, huge gains in processing power and speed have made it possible to create creatures far more sophisticated than those in the 1985 effects classic Young Sherlock Holmes, which featured the first 3-D digital character (a stained-glass knight), or even 1993's Jurassic Park, whose dinosaurs were the first 'living,' breathing computer-generated stars...."

This article focuses on film-maker George Lucas who hated making movies the old-fashioned way. He has compared traditional, film-based movie production to wearing handcuffs and waging war. But instead of just complaining, Lucas decided that there had to be a better way--and he has dedicated much of his career to finding it. From the digital cameras that are replacing film cameras on movie sets, to the way movies are edited, to how special effects are created, to the sound one hears in theaters and at home, and even to the way movies are distributed to theaters, Lucas has led the way in adopting innovative technologies. Includes a passing reference to Holmes. "...With the stained-glass knight in 1985's 'Young Sherlock Holmes,' ILM created the first CG character in the history of cinema...."

15. Metz, Cade, and Sean Carroll. "Hollywood Reboots (Cover story)." PC Magazine 25, no. 9 (2006): 62-74.

The article focuses on the impact of microcomputers and digital technology on the motion picture industry. Digital effects in the motion pictures were first used in the film "Young Sherlock Holmes," directed by Steven Spielberg. In earlier films like "Alien and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan," digital images show up only on computer screens. The "Young Sherlock Holmes" used CGL computer-generated imagery, to create the illusion of photorealism, fashioning a digital object that, in the context of the film, is not digital at all. The bigger leap came on "Attack of the Clones," the first major picture shot with a high-definition digital camera. High-definition (HD) provides an image remarkably similar to what one can get with 35mm film while eliminating a good part of the hassle. Given the prevalence of digital technology throughout the movie-making process, it is amazing that most Hollywood movies are still shot on film. The trouble is, HD cameras cannot capture the same range of light as traditional cameras can, and movie-makers often complain that the HD image is too pristine and unforgiving.

16. Robertson, Barbara. "Movie Retrospective." Computer Graphics World 25, no. 7 (2002): 36.

Presents photographs of digital visual effects and scenes from different films in the U.S. Use of the three-dimensional technology in the effects; Impact of computer graphics on animated features; Implications of CG for filmmakers. Caption for one photograph reads "May 1986 Arguably, the first 3D character in a feature film is a knight who leaps out of a stained glass window in Young Sherlock Holmes. The Pixar group at Lucasfilm uses new motion blur technology and its 32-bit RGBA paint system to create the effect."
