Sherlock Holmes (1954)
Sherlock Holmes (1954) was the first American television series of Sherlock Holmes adventures aired in syndication in the fall of 1954. The 39 half-hour original stories were produced by Sheldon Reynolds, starring Ronald Howard (son of Leslie Howard) as Sherlock Holmes and Howard Marion Crawford as Doctor Watson. Archie Duncan appeared in many episodes as Inspector Lestrade (and a few as other characters). Richard Larke, billed as Kenneth Richards, played Sgt. Wilkins in about fifteen episodes. Most of the episodes were non-Canonical stories except for an adaptation of "The Red-Headed League". Other episodes used the basic ideas of Holmes stories but changed details (e.g. "The Greek Interpreter" became "The French Interpreter").
