PANAJI: To commemorate the forthcoming death anniversary of Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of Sherlock Holmes, the most famous fictional detective ever, this Thursday, 22nd June, at 6.30 pm, the Cinephile Film Club will screen three short telefilms, with Jeremy Brett, the definitive Sherlock Holmes, in the lead role. Film critic and member of the Sherlock Holmes Society Sachin Chatte will present the films. With Holmes and Watson being ever so famous, this timeless classic series was produced between 1984 to ’94 and is considered the best and most accurate representation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories. The details are given below:
The Adventure of the Second Stain (51 mins) – A story in which the Prime Minister of England comes to Sherlock Holmes to ask him to retrieve a missing document, which could lead to war. Murder, mystery, and espionage, this story has it all.
The Adventure of the Priory School (52 mins) – Holmes is called to solve the case when a 10-year-old boy, the son of a rich Duke, goes missing from school.
The Adventure of the Dancing Men (52 mins) – One of the most innovative stories by Arthur Conan Doyle, it revolves around almost childish drawings of dancing men that bother a lady, and her husband seeks help from Holmes to solve the mystery.
