1/21/1953 Sherlock Holmes (?) dances (?)
January 21, 1953. It is a little hard to imagine the Master on point, and in fact his name does not appear but who else could be dancing around in a deerstalker cap and carrying a magnifying glass? On this date Richard Arnell's ballet The Great Detective had its world premiere. You can find pictures from it on the web, if you try hard enough.
