Sherlock Holmes encounters a thief who vanishes. This baffles him.

As the earliest cinematic incarnation of the character of Sherlock Holmes, this has a certain amount of interest value. However, as a Sherlock Holmes story, it is nearly worthless, but with a running time of thirty seconds, what do you expect? Personally, I think the thing that baffles Holmes here is what he’s doing in this subpar Melies imitation. A curio, but little else.
