Now you can own all 39 episodes of Sherlock Holmes remastered—a must-have collection for all fans of the dynamic detective! This black-and-white series from the 1950’s brought a fresh take on the classic character to American television. This was a more laid-back Sherlock Holmes with a smart sense of humor and a twinkle in his eye. The appeal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s detective series is elementary, and television producer Sheldon Reynolds knew this. So, in 1954, he brought the popular characters from the novels to audiences in the United States with Ronald Howard playing a dashing and quick-witted Holmes. Howard Marion Crawford smartly portrays Dr. John Watson as a wise and valuable sidekick. The pair has perfect chemistry making each episode a joy to watch!
