Sherlock Holmes -- A Real Box-Office Tonic for Every Exhibitor -- July 23, 2022

Moving Picture World, 01-July-1922

Eille Norwood played Sherlock Holmes and Hubert Willis played Dr John Watson in a series of short films and features made between 1921 and 1923 by Stoll Pictures. Educational, which was releasing the films in the US, did a tie-in with The Saturday Evening Post.

Film Daily, 09-July-1922

"...a splendid entertainment."

Photoplay, July, 1922

John Barrymore played Holmes in a loose adaption of William Gillette's play. I didn't enjoy the movie much, but Gustav von Seyffertitz was perfect as Professor Moriarity.
