Episode 74: Behind the Canonical Screen
Hello ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to Baker Street Babes Episode #74!
Babes Ashley and Lyndsay both were honored to have presented at the Baker Street Irregulars-sponsored UCLA symposium “Sherlock Holmes: Behind the Canonical Screen” in 2012. To boot, they were the editors of the book edition, which is now available through BSI Press. Join them along with colleague and honorary Babe Timothy Greer as they discuss the original conference, the creation of the book, and many of the wonderful iterations of Sherlock Holmes as he has appeared on both the big and small screens.
From the press release: “This volume provides a written record of virtually all of the Conference presentations. The work of the 23 contributors, including Sherlockians, academics, and entertainment industry creative talent are all represented here. Lavishly illustrated, this oversized volume will be an essential resource for the student of Sherlockian film and its place in the history of cinema.” Featuring the Babes, Mr. Greer, Nicholas Meyer, Rob Doherty, John Landis, the creators of Disney’s The Great Mouse Detective, and much more!
