William Gillette in "Sherlock Holmes." In Bert Coules's dramatization of the Canon for BBC Radio, Sherlock Holmes (Clive Merrison) mouths the last lines of Gillette's play in LION-- with hilarious results!
The two men (Basil Rathbone left, and Nigel Bruce right) who have played Holmes and Watson...more than any other two men in Film and Radio history. Yes, they also had an ongoing radio drama as well as 14 feature films. A bit stoic and over-refined compared to our more modern look at Sherlock Holmes, but still a great performance.
