various and assorted miscellany
That one is really old. I knew films were around then, but I didn't know they made commercial ones then. Is commercial film the right word I want? Not sure. Going to go check this out. Happy Saturday!
I think the earliest publicly screened film was in 1892. Film has a much earlier history than I'd realized before I started looking into the history of horror films and found some fascinating shorts with wonderful special effects from the 1890s. It's amazing what they could do in those early days.
...well if he is baffled, there not hope for me.
He's always cleverer and more astute than I'll ever be.
Ohhh very nice indeed.
I was impressed to see such an early Sherlock Holmes adaptation.
I'd forgotten that is was Sherlock Holmes Day ...All the best Jan
I get reminders ;)
I look forward to seeing if he is still baffled at the end of the film.
He never stays baffled lol
I would never have guessed it was Sherlock Holmes, but very interesting to see early attempts at special effects. :)
Such a short film, too, and yet you get a story from it.
I didn't know there was such an old Sherlock film, either. More or less during his 'lifetime'! Valerie
Yes! Arthur Conan Doyle died in 1930. It must've been satisfying to see this.
This looks fun. I might have to give this one a watch!
At less than a minute, it's a quick watch ;)
