On This Day 15th January

Frederick William Lloyd
JANUARY 15, 1880 – NOVEMBER 24, 1949

Famous for his roles in Oliver Twist (1948), Mixed Doubles (1933) and 21 Days Together (1940), Frederick William Lloyd appeared as Dr. John Watson in the 1932 adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles, opposite Robert Rendel (born 1885) as Sherlock Holmes. The production, produced by Gainsborough Pictures, is notable as the first “talkie” film of the story, and was until recently thought to be a lost film. However, a rediscovery of the film’s soundtrack allowed the movie to be reconstructed from the remaining visual elements. The finished product was shown at a special viewing to the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, and is not available commercially.
Frederick William Lloyd was born January 15, 1880 in London, England. He died November 24, 1949 in Hove, East Sussex, England.
