You didn't know Conan Doyle was into spiritualism? Really? Houdini met Conan Doyle in 1920. Would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for that meeting..... Conan Doyle was totally into spiritualism. He was also actively involved in supporting accused people who were wrongfully accused of crime. Because of his efforts to prove George Edalji innocent of the crime of animal mutilation, the UK Court of Appeals was established. His efforts to overturn the conviction of Oscar Slater in the Scottish murder case of Marion Gilchrist resulted in Slater being set free and Doyle actually paid the co... [More]

there was a movie done about this it's a kids movie FairyTale: A True Story (1997) I don't know how accurate it is but it does show the opposing views of Houdini and Doyle.

Well, I'm glad I told you some info you didn't have. Given that he created the ultra logical Holmes, it's quite fascinating to know that Conan Doyle was a believer in 'the other side'. If UFO's had been around, he probably would have believed in them as well. He had an open mind, which is more than can be said for Holmes. All in all, I think Conan Doyle was Dr Watson and his teacher, Dr Joseph Bell from Edinburgh Uni, was Sherlock.
