Burstup Holmes' Murder Case (1913)

The proliferation of screen adaptations of Sherlock Holmes stories in the early years of the 20th century soon lent themselves to parody, such as this two-reel farce comedy directed by Alice Guy at her Solax studio in Fort Lee, NJ. A fun send-up of the Holmes mysteries with some broad physical humor.

Starring Fraunie Fraunholz, Darwin Karr, and Blanche Cornwall.
