As Frank Mentzel commented, in this month’s Data! Data! Data! column, the first on-screen version of The Copper Beeches was in 1912.

Georges Treville travelled to London from Paris to star in a series of 8 films as Sherlock Holmes for Eclair Films. Treville would also direct many of these films. Only this film and a version of Silver Blaze survive today.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle supposedly supervised the filming process.  Surprisingly, the film’s plot is different than the story – although the daughter’s inheritance is the key point.

Enjoy the film above!
