Conan Doyle on screen

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

We have the chance to have Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself in several silent and speaking movies. His works has been adapted on screen since his life time, and the total of adaptations is logically proportional to his huge amount of literary works. Most are Sherlock Holmes adaptations but some non-Sherlock Holmes stories like The Lost World or Rodney Stone have also been adapted since 1913.
