The 1922 silent classic starring John Barrymore is in the works for Blu-ray at the end of 2011.
In an early announcement to retailers, Kino Video says 'Sherlock Holmes (1922)' will hit Blu-ray on December 13.
When a young prince is accused of a crime that could embroil him in international scandal, debonair supersleuth Sherlock Holmes comes to his aid, and quickly discovers that behind the incident lurks a criminal mastermind eager to reduce Western civilization to anarchy. Adapted from the hugely popular stage version of Arthur Conan Doyle¹s stories (by William Gillette), 'Sherlock Holmes' not only provided Barrymore with one of his most prestigious early roles, but also presented the screen debuts of two notable actors: William Powell ('The Thin Man') and Roland Young ('Topper'). 'Sherlock Holmes' was mastered from a 35mm restoration by the George Eastman House Motion Picture Department, and is accompanied by a score by Ben Model, performed on the Miditzer Virtual Theatre Organ.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
