      Sherlock Holmes on Screen a New Guide to the Film History of Our Favorite DetectiveI love Sherlock Holmes, but I m not a Sherlock Holmes completist in the way that I am of, say, James Bond or Dracula And there s a geek continuum I m constantly reminded that there are many fans of those that are far to the left and right of me I do have a favorite Holmes Ian Richardson, largely because his BBC films were the ones I grew up on, whereas I largely missed the Jeremy Brett version that began the follo [...]

      I m writing about the 2002 edition, which I read through the help of my county library system Although it claimed to be complete, it is not Has some nice information such as when episodes were originally broadcast and reviews a the time of release and large pictures My big problem with the book is that Barnes gives his personal opinion about the films he s seen I didn t think that was appropriate for a reference book For example he likes movie The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes I thought it was [...]
