Basil Rathbone was the most "sherlockian" actor. Actually the clothes were originated inn the theatrical adaptations, just as the famous "Elementary, my dear Watson". I played SH in a theatrical rendering of "The Speckled Band".

I got 6 out of 8 correct. I should have gotten them all right, but I didn't. And I am a major Sherlock Holmes aficionado.
