Storyline

One of Barrymore's most prestigious early roles, this rarely seen film also presents screen debuts of William Powell and Roland Young. When a young prince is accused of a crime that could embroil him in international scandal, debonair super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes comes to his aid, and quickly discovers that behind the incident lurks a criminal mastermind eager to reduce Western civilization to anarchy.

Trivia

Actor Walter Kingsford appears, uncredited, in this film as the gunman/sniper at the apartment window. Kingsford at the time of this film was appearing in Broadway plays rather than films and this is possibly his first film. In the silent era it wasn't unusual to have an uncredited actor even though the actor may have appeared memorably in a film. Since the 1922 Sherlock Holmes was lost for more than 50 years, the film could not be viewed to validate Kingsford's appearance in it. From the 1970s to 2001 much of this film was reconstructed with elements still missing, however Kingsford's appearance in it should be more noted as the film has since been put on dvd and Blu-ray.

A most excellent restoration!
14 January 2003 | by (Rochester, NY USA) – See all my reviews

I recently had the privilege of seeing the "World Premiere" of Albert Parker's version of Sherlock Holmes at The George Eastman House's Dryden Theater. John Barrymore was the sleuth and he was simply grand. I loved every campy moment! I'm quoting now from the capsule description written by the staff at the GEH: Until its rediscovery in the mid-1970s by Eastman House's first film curator James Card, Sherlock Holmes was the most sought-after `lost' John Barrymore film. When another print containing the missing original intertitles was located within the Eastman House's vaults a few years ago, a major restoration was undertaken. The resulting film reveals a faithful adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original story (the film was in fact fully endorsed by Doyle in 1922), as Barrymore's Holmes, aided by the ubiquitous Dr. Watson, battles wits with-who else?-sinister arch-nemesis Professor Moriarty. Live piano by Philip Carli.
