This book traces the use made of the famous profile of Sherlock Holmes by illustrators, filmmakers and advertisers in the century since Holmes first astonished his public. It is almost impossible to catalogue the number of actors who have portrayed Homes, but the most famous initially appeared in The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1939: Basil Rathbone, who appeared in over 14 movies with Nigel Bruce as Watson, is for many the definitive Holmes. The role has subsequently been played actors as diverse as Peter Cushing and Peter Cook, but the most successful have been those with suave looks, sharp features, and the ability to handle a pipe, a violin and a syringe. This book not only covers the sleuth's dramatic career, but in a fascinating text, also details the spoofs, comics and myriad advertisements that have employed his name and silhouette. Illustrated with over 200 pictures, many in colour, this attractive volume includes film stills of the most memorable Holmes, as well as a plethora of ephemera, with pictures of cigarette cards, advertisements, and games from around the world.
