Sherlock Holmes Solves the Sign of the 4 -- February 23, 2013

In 1913 the Thanhouser Film Corporation produced a two-reel adaption of The Sign of the Four, entitled "Sherlock Holmes Solves the Sign of the 4," starring Harry Benham as Sherlock Holmes and Charles Gunn as Doctor Watson. Reviews of the time commented that Benham and Gunn were unusually youthful-looking for the parts that they played. Below are larger versions of the pictures and the description from the ad in the 01-March-1913 Moving Picture World.
