    The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
    Sherlock Holmes: Eille Norwood - Dr. Watson: Hubert Willis
   
 
  Eille Norwood, born Anthony Edward Brett in 1861, took his stage name from his lady friend Eileen and the town of Norwood. He played Holmes in forty-seven silent films lasting about 20 minutes each, with Hubert Willis played Watson in nearly all these films. Arthur Conan Doyle admired Eille's portrayal of Sherlock Holmes, although the contemporary setting in the films were his only criticism.

    Sherlock Holmes
    Sherlock Holmes: Robert Downey, Jr. - Dr. Watson: Jude Law
   
 
  Flash and dazzle fill the movie screen with this energetic duo, staring the ubiquitous Robert Downey, Jr. as the sleuth and Jude Law as his loyal assistant, Dr. Watson. Fast moving, clever and contemporary in style, this version strays from Doyle's renowned adventures, but holds its own in pure popcorn entertainment.
