Considered lost for a long time, this first film version of Conan Doyle’s hero was found in the vaults of the French Cinematheque. The French Cinematheque in collaboration with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival has done a magnificent restoration of the only movie starring William Gillette. Gillette played Holmes over 1300 times on stage and gave a quasi-definitive version of the character. He wrote the play in which the script of the film is adapted.
