I look at a lot of websites that deal with Victorian London. Most of them are blogs, while others are instructional or educational. Either way, you can come across some pretty cool information. And so, a few years ago I disco...

From the people who gave us the DVD of Gillette's Sherlock Holmes, now comes Doyle's influential The Lost World.

Now if they could only find the lost footage from Billy Wilder's three-hour cut of the film...
A large Loch Ness Monster built in 1969 for a Sherlock Holmes film is found almost 50 years after it sank to the bottom of the loch.

A very good tumblr site I read requested a "signal boost", which I'm assuming is a request to spread the word, so I thought I'd do that here for any Chicago-located Elementary/Sherlockians who might be interested.
The tumblr site:
Autistic Sherlock in Elementary features autistic [coded] Sherlock recaps of each CBS Elementary episode. It is not explicitly stated in the show that he is autistic, but he is autistic coded. This blog is run by Lucas Scheelk, an Autistic Holmesian.

 Personally, I think this is good news as I enjoy these Guy Ritchie-directed films not as great Sherlock Holmes (or even good Sherlock Holmes) but as fun--and smart--Holmes. Jude Law is a great contribution to the cinematic Watson and RDJ is one of those "old-fashioned movie stars" whose personality is part of his star power, but who can act, and when called for, can lose himself in his role (as Australian method actor Kirk Lazarus playing African-American Staff Sgt. Lincoln Osiris in Tropic Thunder, there were plenty of times in the film I forgot it was RDJ). Downey's Holmes will never be considered as one of the great screen Holmes, but it is interesting and entertaining. Looking forward to seeing Sherlock Holmes 3 in theaters December 2017.
Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes 3 is now being written by James Coyne, with Robert Downey Jr. having said that filming might begin in 2016.

I love these renditions of Holmes. I like Guy Ritchie's style of movie telling and Downey/Law are brilliant actors.

My dear Kendall,

In Re: your post "Sherlock Holmes or Professor Presbury?" http://sherlockpeoria.blogspot.com/2016/04/sherlock-holmes-or-professor-presbury.html
In this wide world of Sherlockiana, I would hardly think that someone of your stature would trouble themselves to take notice of me, so when I first read your post of Tuesday, April 19, I was as puzzled as your commentator on the subject of said post. But, in case it was in response to my IHOSE post on the return of Elementary for a fifth season, let me assure you that it was not a ad-hominum [sic] or ad hominem (an argument or reaction directed against a person rather than the position they are maintaining) attack towards you. The truth is your were neither named in my post or, indeed, in my thoughts when I wrote it. There were many knee-jerk reactions to Elementary  in the Sherlockian community in those bygone days of 2012 and truth be told I was one of those skeptics who wondered of the worth of another Holmes adaptation post-Sherlock, but I went to the series with as open a mind as humanly (not Holmsianly) possible and was won over by the cast and scripts. It is a show not for everybody and I understand and respect that. However, I do see on the web critiques of the show of a specious nature, one of the more amusing and nonsensical made (with or without cleavage) is that Elementary is a procedural, usually with the tone of flatulence-detection at a wine tasting. So, there is no need to write to Prague for serum of langur. I happen to like you and respect your position as an iconoclast. With iconoclasts, one needs to give them room to let the arms wave and the spittle fly. It is the duty of the respectful listener to call "BS" when he hears it, but my IHOSE post was not one of those occasions. Instead, I leave you with a dedication.

With a lack of a sense of humor,
O'Reilly
