"Sherlock Holmes: Screen and Sound Guide,"
By Kelley, Gordon E.
Metuchen, NJ
Scarecrow Press, Incorporated, 1994
$49.95 Cloth
0-8108-2859-6 1994
343pp

In this book, Kelley chronologically names and summarizes the plots of each of the Sherlock Holmes stories that had appeared worldwide in motion pictures, RADIO, television, recordings, and computer programs, and includes major cast members and production staff. Included also are listings of animated television and commercial presentations, and the broadcast dates of the individual radio and television programs are indicated.

The book devotes about 90 pages to discussing and listing U.S. Radio Broadcasts; United Kingdom, Canadian, and other Radio Broadcasts, Radio Program Recordings, and Recorded Reading. It has a short summary of each Sherlock Holmes radio series through the early 1990's and has logs that list airing dates and titles.

Kelley's book does have a few, minor gaps in its radio coverage, but is a wealth of information for the OTR fan of the world's first consulting detective.
