This play is responsible for several Holmes tropes that are not found in Conan Doyle. The deerstalker cap, the pipe, the use of "elementary", and the name "Billy" for the previously nameless pageboy, all originated in Gillette's play.

''Sherlock Holmes, A Play, wherein is set forth The Strange Case of Miss Alice Faulkner'' was the popular dramatization of Creator/ArthurConanDoyle's Franchise/SherlockHolmes stories, by William Gillette, the Holmes for the generation before Basil Rathbone. Rather than being an adaption of any of Conan Doyle's stories it takes elements from "A Scandal in Bohemia", "The Final Problem", and "A Study In Scarlet" to weave a completely original though very Holmesian tale.

The play was hugely successful. It debuted in 1899 and ran for over thirty years, with Gillette giving his final Holmes performance in 1932. A young Creator/CharlieChaplin, then a teenager trying to escape the poverty of the London slums, played Billy regularly for 2 1/2 years, including in one production opposite Gillete.
