Sherlock Holmes

Transcript: In 1893, the community-dubbed "Sher-flock," "Sherlockians," and "Holmesians" took to the streets wearing black armbands to protest the death of Sherlock Holmes in The Final Problem. The Return is a collection of thirteen short stories, which began with The Adventure of the Empty House, in which Holmes reappears, explaining that he had faked his own death previously. 1902 Since then, several plays, two musicals, and a ballet have been written around Sherlock Holmes. Like the first, The Sign of Four was a full-length novel. Currently celebrating 112 years of a strong fandom, it doesn't seem like Sherlock Holmes is going anywhere soon. (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr The eponymous Broadway, Sherlock Holmes, ran from 1899 to 1930 and contributed essentially to the current vision of Sherlock Holmes, portrayed with a deerstalker cap and calabash pipe. Doyle didn't actually intend to publish any further stories, but was convinced otherwise by the pleas of his fans, so he concocted the idea that Sherlock had faked his death. Applying Higher Criticism logic to Sherlock Holmes became a common pastime for Sherlockians, which sparked the invention of "The Game", in which fans began to pretend that Sherlock Holmes and John H. Watson were real people, and that Arthur Conan Doyle was, in fact, their literary manager. Guinness World Records lists Sherlock Holmes as the "Most Portrayed Movie Character". In 1951, the Sherlock Holmes Society of London was created to replace the Sherlock Holmes Literary Society. The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was a compilation of twelve short stories. The newly-met Holmes and Watson explore the case of Enoch J. Drebber's unusual death and the word "Rache" written on the wall in blood. These twelve include two of the most famous of his stories, A Scandal in Bohemia and The Five Orange Pips. 1927 The Valley of Fear is the fourth and final full-length novel published about Sherlock Holmes, and covers the actual story of James McParland, an agent for Molly Maguires and Pinkerton. The Adventure of the Cardboard Box was unintentionally published in the Memoirs, as Doyle believed it was currently too scandalous for young readers. 1887 Sherlock Holmes has been portrayed by seventy-five actors in over two hundred and eleven films, spanning from 1900 to 2012. 1905 1917 This is the final book ever published by Doyle, and is comprised of twelve stories. It contains three stories that aren't narrated by John Watson, either in third person or narrated by Sherlock Holmes himself. Sherlock Holmes 1894 (cc) photo by jimmyharris on Flickr Sir Arthur Conan Doyle In 1941, the Baker Street Irregulars held their first official dinner meeting to discuss the series. (cc) photo by Franco Folini on Flickr Revisions were only made in American publications, however, and to this day any canon copies have only eleven stories. The Sher-flock still commonly plays this game, though is far less vocal about it than it was back in the 1800's. 1915 Series adaptations of Sherlock Holmes can be found in plain sight from Russia to the United Kingdom, as clearly as "Sherlock", and as obscurely as "House". Consulting Detective Their protests worked, because in 1905, Doyle published The Adventure of the Empty House, in which Sherlock explained that he had faked his death. ("Rache" means "revenge" in German.) The fifth book of Sherlock Holmes is a novel as well, covering the story of a murder plotted around the legend of a devilish hound. His Last Bow is a compilation of seven short stories, including the story of the same name, which was the first Holmes story ever to be written in third person. 1890 Another collection of twelve short stories was (accidentally) published with an unintended edition. The Fans (cc) photo by Metro Centric on Flickr Doyle's second installment follows the curious story of Miss Mary Morstan, the great Agra treasure, and the deaths surrounding them. The novel is considered a prequel to Sherlock's untimely death in The Final Problem. The world's first glimpse of Sherlock Holmes was a full-length novel. 1892 In American versions, The Adventure of the Cardboard Box serves as an eighth addition to the book.

Transcript: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Doyle was born May 22, 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father was a chronic alcoholic; his mother a master storyteller. Though Doyle loathed the school, it was here that he discovered his talent for storytelling. He was often found with a slew of younger students who were completely enraptured with the stories he made up. At the age of twenty, he took some time away from his medical studies to go on his first the Arctic Circle. After graduating and opening his own practice in Portsmouth, England, he struggled to make it in two occupations: a doctor and an author. In 1888, Doyle's first major work was published: A Study in Scarlet, which featured the (now famous) Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Sherlock You are now Sherlock Holmes. Use your powers of observation and logical induction to solve these mysteries! Logic: 1. A man was born in a hospital in 1980 and dies there in 1944. How is that possible? 2. A woman shoots her husband. Then she holds him underwater for 5 minutes Finally, she hangs him. (lovely woman, right?) But then, five minutes after that, they hed out for a evening tea. How is that possible? 3. A cabin, locked from the inside, is perched on the side of a mountain. It is forced open, and thirty people are found dead inside. They had plenty of food and water. How did they die? Observation: A woman was found in her bedroom last night with her pet bird strangled in its cage. Henry Smith and Joe Schmo, her boyfriends; Anabelle Spark, a burglar known to be near the incident; and Jenny, her cook, were questioned by the police. 1. How was she killed? 2. Who was killed first? Her or her canary? 3. Who killed her? Answers: 1. Strangled (her hankerchief) 2. Her, she probably would have tried to save her canary and not have been just brushing her hair. 3. It couldn't have been Annabelle because nothing was stolen. There was no reason to think it was Jenny. Joe clearly liked her because he kept giving her nice gifts. So by careful observation, it was Henry Smith. He was jealous of how much attention Joe was giving her. He died of a heart attack at the age of 71 at his home in Crowborough, East Sussex on July 7, 1930. His last words were directed toward his wife: "You are wonderful.” Major Works: (1888) A Study in Scarlet (1892-1928) Sherlock Holmes short stories (1889) The Mystery of Cloomber (1896)The Exploits of Brigadier Gerard (1900) The Great Boer War (1901) The Hound of the Baskervilles (1912) The Lost World (Professor Challenger) "Biography" When Doyle returned home from the Jesuit school, he signed committal papers for his father and set off, surprisingly, for medical school. "Biography" "Brain Food" "Logic Riddles" Doyle later moved to London and opened a medical practice where he did not help a single patient and so, naturally, he had time to think. He decided to write a series of short stories featuring Sherlock Holmes and was published by The Strand magazine. "Biography" "Biography" It was here that Doyle got the idea for the character of Sherlock Holmes from one of his teachers at the University of Edinburgh, Dr. Joseph Bell, who was a master of observation, logic, deduction, and diagnosis.

This fails to be true for even the smallest scenes play a role in solving the crime. Plot Mike McGranaghan from states that "the supernatural mystery at the center of Sherlock Holmes is as satisfying as a more realistic one would have been." In contrast A.O. Scott from the New York Times says that the plot "fails to be interesting." According to A.O. Scott Holmes has become "a brawling, head butting, fist-in-gut, knee-in-groin action hero." How these characteristics combine together Characters/actors According to Ed Gonzalez from Slant Magazine Downey's character (Holmes) is what "one imagines Downey Jr. taking on during an intense game of Boggle." Yes the plot isn't from this time period when it comes to the dark magic aspect but it makes the plot way better than an original one would. Downey only gets these expressions when truly trying to figure out the case. Modernization This scene helps show how Holmes goes about putting pieces of a case together. This film modernizes Holmes for all generations to come. It doesn't represent him in his "deerstalk cap" as in the book but instead incorporates new age actors and aspects of modernization within the plot. Irene becomes under the charge of Lord Blackwood and in the end helps Holmes solve the case. Modernization is enhanced with a cast that has been in many major movies over the past couple of years. They also modernized the plot. In the movie Lord Blackwood built a machine which disperses gas in order to kill all the congressman. This machine is not for the time period in which Holmes was written for. So it appeals to the audience.
