Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created the redoubtable Sherlock Holmes at the dawn of the Twentieth Century, when movies were in their infancy and Sherlock was among the first fictional characters in the movies. In 1900, an unknown actor portrayed Holmes in "Sherlock Holmes Baffled" and over the past 100 eyars, Sherlock, and his faithful Dr. Watson have appeared on screen more often than any other fictional characters. Holmes, instantly recognizable by his distinctive profile and deer stalking cap, and Watson, have been portrayed by actors great and not so great, in silent movies, talkies, and on television.
