   On of the most popular characters in literary history is having another movie debut on Christmas. Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr. as the sleuth, and Jude Law as Dr. Watson will premiere nationwide at a theatre near you.To honor this prolific character, Turner Classic Movies will have a holiday celebration with a Sherlock Holmes marathon.


   Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created Holmes in the latter part of the nineteenth century. In fact, my book ends on a spectacular note with a look at the Victorian Age. Of course, many actors have played the British detective, but the man most associated with the private investigator from 221-B Baker Street is Basil Rathbone. I do my own tribute to Rathbone in Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. If you want to gear up for the new motion picture, get your fill on TCM and their visit on December 25th with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson…


Until next time>                               “never forget”
