There were two adaptions of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novel A Study in Scarlet made in 1914. The British feature version, directed by George Pearson, is lost and anxiously sought. James Bragington played Holmes.
I have not heard of anyone looking for the American Gold Seal two-reeler released by Universal. Francis Ford directed and played Sherlock Holmes. Some sources claim that his brother John, who later became a famous director, played Doctor Watson. I would like to see more evidence.
