First in 1954 in an 40 min episode of Die Galerie der großen Detektive , a German series which ran from 1954-1955 with each episode covering a different story from popular crime writers including Charles Dickens and Agatha Christie.
The episode was entitled "Sherlock Holmes liegt im Sterben" (Sherlock Holmes Lies In Death) and his Watson in the episode was Harald Mannl .
Furbringer would later reprise the role in the 1958 comedy television movie "Dr. med. Hiob Praetorius" but this time his Watson was played by Fred C.Siebeck.
If you would like to see more autographed photos of Holmes and Watsons of TV , film , radio , stage and more be sure to check out the rest of the Howard Ostrom Collection.
And if anyone has any ideas as to getting hold of either Fred C.Siebeck and Harald Mannl autographs/photos myself and Howard would love to hear from you.
