It’s no secret that compulsive gamblers are every bit as sick as alcoholics or drug addicts. Gambling is a fever that consumes them as surely as whiskey or heroine. However even the most habitual and devoted of gamblers might well hesitate when the gamble literally means his life or death… A Study In Scarlet was adapted from the Arthur Conan Doyle classic specially for the Mystery Theater by Murray Burnett.

Produced and directed by: Himan Brown

A Study In Scarlet published in 1887 was the first of Conan Doyle's stories to feature the character of Sherlock Holmes.
