IndieWire: Robert Downey Jr. and UCLA Set Out to Find Long-Lost ‘Sherlock Holmes’ Silent Films. “Robert Downey Jr. has played legendary detective Sherlock Holmes in two feature films directed by Guy Ritchie… and now the actor is preserving the character’s legacy in an even greater way by serving as honorary chair of ‘Searching for Sherlock: The Game’s Afoot.’ The project is a joint effort between the UCLA Film and Television Archive and Baker Street Irregulars and seeks to discover long-lost Sherlock Holmes movies from the silent film era and beyond.”
