Well, to be honest, that's rather a difficult question to answer, because there are so many Sherlock Holmes movies available.
I for one cannot give you just one answer.
I do have some favourites though, as I am sure you have too.
But let's follow in Sherlock Holmes's footsteps and start with just the facts:
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle may "only" have written 56 short stories and four full-length novels about the world's most famous detective.
Yet today there are hundreds of different Sherlock Holmes films and TV series episodes. Each one of them brings the sleuth and his friend Doctor Watson to life in a different way.
They are long, short, in colour or black and white.
There are live action films or TV series and animated cartoons.
Many movie adaptations are faithful to the original stories. Others are more or less imaginative re-inventions.
Some of the greatest acting talents have played Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson in the past. At present a handful of younger actors offer new interpretations of the beloved characters. Thereby they ensure that Holmes and Watson acquire new fans and followers even in this day and age.
Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson share a long history on the big and the small screen.
And I am sure the future will add many more adventures.
