    The Return of Sherlock Holmes (Paramount, 1930). Swedish One Sheet (27.75" X 39.5") Gosta Aberg Artwork.
    "Elementary, dear Watson, elementary," utters master sleuth Sherlock Holmes (played by Clive Brooks) for the first time on film, the line that would ultimately become his trademark. Interestingly, Holmes never used that phrase in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's books. Brook played Holmes a total of three times: The Return of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes (1932), and as part of Paramount on Parade (1930). In this installment, Holmes and Watson must once again face down the villainous Professor Moriarty after the sleuth begins investigating the murder of a ship's captain and the suspicious disappearance of the dead man's supposedly guilty son. A wonderful first time offering at Heritage, this Swedish piece showcases wonderfully striking artwork by Gosta Aberg in eye-catching colors. Light restoration consists of touchup at the folds, a couple of mild tears near the lower right border, and a small tear under the lower horizontal fold. The poster has slight unaddressed edge wear and some small bits of post-restoration surface paper loss. Very Fine- on Linen.

    Estimate: $3,000 - $6,000.
