Happy Birthday, William Gillette! The legendary actor who embodied the role of Sherlock Holmes at the turn of the 20th century was born on July 24, 1853.
When Sir Arthur Conan Doyle granted William Gillette permission to adapt Sherlock Holmes for the stage in 1899, it was the beginning of a long relationship. Gillette played the famous detective over 1,300 times. His influence on the character can still be felt today. He added the curve to Holmes' iconic pipe and luxury to Holmes' dressing gown. He was the first to write "Elementary my dear fellow" into a play. ("Fellow" swapped out for "Watson" years later.)
Gillette's sole filmed performance as Sherlock Holmes, considered lost for nearly 100 years, has been recently discovered and brilliantly restored by San Francisco Silent Film Festival and la Cinémathèque française. And now it can be yours! We're giving away 2 copies of Sherlock Holmes (1916) in honor of the anniversary of William Gillette's birth.
