Disappointment Abounds: No Sherlock Showing

We were so close, friends. SOCLOSE! Well, you were close if you were going to be in Chicago on Friday.

“Scheduled for June 19 and charging an ill-advised $75 entry fee, the Chicago premiere of the rediscovered Essanay silent feature ‘Sherlock Holmes’ has been canceled, according to its presenters (via the Chicago Tribune).”

So there it is. No lovely screening. However, the film will be available on DVD and Blu-ray Oct. 20 via flickeralley.com.

    Ack. I do wonder if it was the ticket price. If I were anywhere near I’d have gone, but that seemed steep.

    Right?? I pre-ordered the blu-ray the very first day I could. It seems so surreal to finally almost have this piece of history in our hands.

    Exactly! I have the largest digital collection of Holmes film & TV that I’m aware of. Something I’m very proud of, yet I’ve more than once wondered what it would be like if we had THAT film. I don’t care if I have to order it on BETA CASSETTE!!
