lost 1916 silent Sherlock filme found

Way before Benedict graced the role, others brought Sherlock Holmes to life on screen. A 1916 silent film featuring actor William Gillette who gave SH most of his characteristics which endure still today has been found. It was incorrectly cataloged in a French film archives vault in the Cinematique Francaise. How embarrassing for the catalogers. Somebody should go to a workshop. Gillette often portrayed SH on stage.
