Sherlock Holmes, the most famous fictional detective of all time, first appeared in the literature in 1887. Created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he originally appeared in 56 short stories and four novels. Holmes was the perfect gentleman detective who solved difficult cases, and made crime scene observation and deduction a modern, accepted investigative practice. Sherlock Holmes has appeared in every form of public entertainment since his creation, and new short stories continue to appear with regularity. In this book, Kelley chronologically names and summarizes the plots of each of the Sherlock Holmes stories that had appeared worldwide in motion pictures, radio, television, recordings, and computer programs, and includes major cast members and production staff. Included also are listings of animated television and commercial presentations, and the broadcast dates of the individual radio and television programs are indicated. The original stories are abstracted in an appendix in a fashion so as to not give away the plots. For collectors or researchers the book indicates availability of individual programs. A complete index allows the reader to search by story title, and to find chapters, such as films on television, where the story is described. Major actors may also be located and their listings include a log of performances in which they appeared.
