Bookish Babble: Y16.W3

babble3Baker Street Edition: So many people have put their own spin on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes (books, television and film) that I thought it’d be a rather interesting Babble. The downside of all the different adaptions is that the majority of the memes etc. online at the moment are about the current Cumberbatch & Freeman reincarnation, not the original.

There is nothing more deceptive than an obvious fact. - Arthur Conan Doyle

"when you have eliminated the impossible whatever is left, however improbable, must be the truth.":

Sherlock Holmes Print Watson Arthur Conan Doyle by LitPrints, $15.00Sherlock's Catchphrase and other famous movie one-liners you’ve been quoting wrong for years ... (according to BuzzFeed):

I’d love to verify this!!! It’s in all the movies and one of the TV adaptions was even called Elementary!

I found an interesting post on it here at Today I Found Out Holmes never said “Elementary my dear Watson” in any of the original 56 short stories or 4 novels starring his character. The closest he comes is in, The Adventure of the Crooked Man. In this story, Holmes uses both the word “Elementary” and the phrase, “my dear Watson“, in somewhat close proximity. The two, however, are not uttered together… Holmes uses the phrase, “exactly, my dear Watson” in 3 different stories.”

Hmmm not so funny now I know he never really said it 😦 Dang It!!

Until Next Time 🙂 Enjoy Your Shelves 🙂
