Conan Doyle's master detective Sherlock Holmes has appeared on screen more times than any other fictional character. Sherlock Holmes on Screen surveys over a century's worth of his exploits in film and television, from the silent era to the present day. Actors Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett and Peter Cushing have all been praised for their portrayals of Holmes. Sherlock Holmes on Screen casts new light on their performances, and introduces many less familiar Sherlocks, too - including John Cleese, Roger Moore and Larry Hagman. Illustrated with rare archive pictures throughout, Sherlock Holmes on Screen is now updated with entries on the BBC's modern-day Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch, and director Guy Ritchie's all-action Sherlock Holmes, starring Robert Downey Jr - plus Sherlockian turns from Rupert Everett and Jonathan Pryce. Expanded coverage of Holmes' animated escapades opposite, among others, Batman, Scooby-Doo and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plus new research into the Great Detective's silent film career, makes this revised edition the most comprehensive Holmes filmography ever published.
