Curiosities: ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE Newsreel Footage

Did you ever imagine you'd get the chance to see Arthur Conan Doyle talk about Sherlock Holmes? You can! Care of Internet Archive, this newsreel footage from 1927 shows Doyle speaking about his beloved character, as well as his interest in spiritualism.

I love this! I'm surprised by the Scottish accent for some reason. He also seems much more bouncy than I'd imagined him.
