Anyone who's a fan of detective fiction would probably be familiar with the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. This literary work has inspired countless detective movies in Hollywood. Here are some notable ones to scratch that crime mystery itch.
What one day, just when you thought you would end up lavishly enjoying your trip to Europe and suddenly a case of murder happens on the train you embarked on? Murder on the Orient Express is the 2017 movie adaptation of Agatha Christie's famous Hercule Poirot mystery novel. With a murder onboard the train, Poirot is determined to solve the crime and find the killer among the other 13 passengers. Interestingly, although this is a fictional murder story, Agatha Christie put it out in the open that she drew inspiration from a real-life kidnapping incident back in the mid-1930s. No wonder, the popularity of this investigative film is still on the rise and people are still on the lookout for movies like Murder on The Orient Express.
The first detective story goes back as early as 1841? Most would be familiar with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. It was Edgar Allan Poe who first came up with the first-ever detective character. It was C. Auguste Dupin that first appeared in The Murders in The Rue Morgue. The word detective did not exist yet during those times. Instead, the name Dupin would co-relate to the word "dupe" or "deception". This is the method by Dupin would use to get information to help solve a case. Dupin has a cold, logical method for problem-solving. He had an upper-class background and emphasis on intense reading for clues. This would remain consistent in Poe's works as well as other literary works that came after them.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was the one that helped popularized the detective mystery genre. The author would go and create 56 short stories and 4 novels featuring Sherlock Holmes. One main difference between the two authors is the inclusion of a sidekick in their stories. Thus the birth of the icon character and line, "Elementary, my dear Watson". The dynamic and method of problem-solving were as interesting as the crimes themselves. Hollywood would produce some of the best detective movies and crime TV shows. All took inspiration from Sherlock Holmes and his escapades.
