IDS 399 IDS Summer Rep 2014 Sherlock Holmes and The Adventure of the Tolling Bell

This is the fourth installment of the 2014 IDS Summer Rep.  John Mauldin and Brad Oxnam reprise their roles of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson respectively in The Adventure of the Tolling Bell.

From Generic Radio Workshop:

Sherlock Holmes is the most oft-portrayed fictional character in movies. (Just for the record, the most oft-portrayed real historical figure is Napoleon Bonaparte.)

NBC started broadcasting Sherlock Holmes in 1930. Many actors essayed the Holmes/Watson characters. But none have become more identified with the role than Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. They created the fictional Arthur Conan Doyle duo on the radio, in the movies, and briefly on television in the early 1950’s.

In the early radio series the story was introduced by Jospeh Bell (his real name) who was supposed to be visiting the study of Sherlock Holmes. He would engage the detective in a discussion of one of his cases. When Bell bowed out of the series, an announcer named Knox Manning took over and they changed the scenario so Manning was visiting with Dr. Watson. Exactly why this switch of venue was effected is not clear.

The first sponsor of the show was G. Washington Coffee. Later it was picked up by a cold remedy named Bromo-Quinine.
