Trivia

Some consider Sherlock Holmes Baffled (1900) as the first Sherlock Holmes film, but due to fact that it was created as a Mutoscope, to be shown in an arcade on a Mutoscope machine to one person at a time, and then transferred to 30 seconds on film later, the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes aka Held For Ransom could be correctly called the first Sherlock Holmes Film.
