    1. Sherlock Holmes A Z A complete listing of TV and film productions Who could ask for What Alan Barnes put together is mind boggling The chronology starts in 1887 and goes to 2010.Every plot, background, solution, and cast are detailed I only wish there were pictires of some of the lesser known titles Larry Hagman was SH in 1976 Who knew


    2. Sherlock Holmes on Screen a New Guide to the Film History of Our Favorite DetectiveI love Sherlock Holmes, but I m not a Sherlock Holmes completist in the way that I am of, say, James Bond or Dracula And there s a geek continuum I m constantly reminded that there are many fans of those that are far to the left and right of me I do have a favorite Holmes Ian Richardson, largely because his BBC films were the ones I grew up on, whereas I largely missed the Jeremy Brett version that began the follo [...]

    6. An amazing reference source, full of details and rare photos The only reason it has four stars rather than five is that the entries are listed alphabetically rather than chronologically, and there is no index or table of contents None of these things would be a problem, except that the colloquial titles of adaptations might be very different from what they were published under, making it difficult to look up specific ones An index, at the very least, listing which pages adaptations could be foun [...]


    7. I m writing about the 2002 edition, which I read through the help of my county library system Although it claimed to be complete, it is not Has some nice information such as when episodes were originally broadcast and reviews a the time of release and large pictures My big problem with the book is that Barnes gives his personal opinion about the films he s seen I didn t think that was appropriate for a reference book For example he likes movie The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes I thought it was [...]
