Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Space Volume II: The Return

It’s time!
Volume Two of our Sherlock Holmes Through Time and Space series is upon us! This time out we’ll watch a quartet of wildly different incarnations of The Great Detective from all over the world. So let’s see the line-up!

First up will be the legenday John Barrymore in the 1922 film SHERLOCK HOLMES.


In the 1910’s, Barrymore played Sherlock Holmes in the William Gillette play to great acclaim on Broadway. After he left the theater to conquer Hollywood, Goldwyn pictures convinced him to return to the role in a straight-up film version of the play. Considered lost for decades, reels of takes were discovered by the George Eastman House in the 1970’s and with the help of the films’ original director (Albert Parker, then in his late 80’s) this film was meticulously reconstructed and exists now as a 109 minute version (from the original 136 minute cut).


Next up, we’ll travel across the world and across art forms to see a Japanese anime incarnation of Sherlock… Sherlock Hound that is… in MEITANTEI HOLMES.


We will watch the episode “The Blue Carbuncle” directed by Hayao Miyazaki, considered (by not only myself) to be one of the finest animation directors of all time.


Next we’ll pick up the television episode we ran out of time for in the last meetup… the acclaimed Granada Series featuring Jeremy Brett (still my all-time number one Holmes).
We will watch the tragic tale of “The Dancing Men” from the very first series.

To finish up the night, we’ll lighten the mood with the wonderful comedy WITHOUT A CLUE

Michael Caine plays a dim-witted actor hired by the brilliant detective John Watson (Ben Kingsley) to
take credit for the cases he cannot get credit for.

Attendance is limited to 8 people due to the space issues of my apartment.  If you would like to bring snacks or drinks to share, please feel free.  Seating is first come, first serve. I have a comfy couch that seats three and the rest of us have to deal with folding chairs. Looking forward to seeing you there!

    Just a head's up: I posted another Sherlockian meetup to go see YOUNG SHERLOCK HOLMES at the Alamo Drafthouse on March 12th. I think it is still under the "suggested" tab here. Come one, come all!

    So I'm RSVPing anyway, but I think you forgot to cap this. :-P Can 12 really fit?

      I don't have the ability to cap attendance! I always ask one of the organizers to do it! 12 can fit but it will be cramped. We'll make it work. :)

      I'll bring pillows to sit on!

    Wouldn't miss Jeremy Brett, or without a clue (a state I often find myself in). Cymbre and I will be there, assuming her schedule works out

      Brett is still THE definitive Holmes for me and The Dancing Men has, at least for me, the definitive Holmes/Watson moment of the entire series. I haven't see WITHOUT A CLUE in ages, but I remember really loving it! Glad you will both be coming! :D
