"A Midget Sherlock Holmes" (Pathe), March 13. - A very small boy with beard and make-up to look like a detective is the center of interest in this farce. He and his friend, the hobo, have an amusing adventure with the black-hand. There are several good laughs. The photographs are good. It is a fair filler.
