A Study in Scarlet (1933)
In observance of Sherlock Holmes Day I watched A Study in Scarlet, a 1933 film starring Reginald Owen as Sherlock Holmes. Anna May Wong also stars, though she doesn't get much screen time. Owen was one of only five actors to play both Holmes and Watson. It is based on Arthur Conan Doyle's novel of the same name. This book is Holmes' first appearance.
