A Study in Scarlet
One can find online the entire 1933 movie of A Study in Scarlet starring Reginald Owen, but I'm strangely drawn to this 32-part YouTube posting of an audiobook version instead. It features John Tefler reading the original Arthur Conan Doyle story - the very first of the Sherlock Holmes tales - originally published in the 1887 edition of Beeton's Christmas Annual.
If you like to read along with an audiobook, as I do, then check out the full text of the book at Project Gutenberg. Dashed clever device, this internet, eh what? A click here and clack there and Bob's yer Uncle.
