StudyScarlet The BFI Are On The Look Out For The World’s First Ever Sherlock Holmes Feature Film, A Study In Scarlet

The good folks over at the BFI are calling on “detectives” around the world to see if they can help them discover a copy of the world’s first ever feature film starring Sherlock Holmes, ‘A Study in Scarlet.’ High on the list of the BFI’s Most Wanted films, the film was released 100 years ago this autumn and hasn’t been seen in generations.

The silent film was directed by George Pearson, whose 1923 film ‘Love, Life and Laughter’ was discovered by EYE, the Dutch film archive, earlier this year. It is an adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s story ‘A Study in Scarlet’ which concerns a fictional murder which takes place on Brigham Young’s trek across America with his Mormon followers. Sherlock solves a series of murders through masterly deduction.
