When a couple of swindlers hold young Alice Faulkner against her will in order to discover the whereabouts of letters that could spell scandal for the royal family, Sherlock Holmes is on the case. Until 2014, all versions of this film were long-thought lost. This newly-restored edition of Berthelet’s silent film is one of the earliest appearances of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective. Accompanied with live music composed and performed by Donald Sosin.
