Found on EBay: 'The Equine Detective'

Selig Polyscope
I don’t usually mention reproduction items and I’ve ignored similar posters for other Selig Polyscope films. But "The Equine Detective”? What was it, the “Sherlock Holmes of the Stable” going undercover pulling a wagon? The possibilities are almost endless.

In fact, according to a 1914 article in The Times, Arabia was a well-known horse who performed in vaudeville and also appeared in films by Universal.

Bidding starts at $7.99

Thanks a whole lot! I can just see it, a lot of smarty-pants screenwriters will read your posting and the light bulb will come on -- "Mr. Ed Meets Philip Marlowe" a high concept for a new TV series. Soon we'll have gumshoe horse shoe shows all over the Boob Toob. Aaargh!
