The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Let Loose the Pack

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This is my favorite of the movies adapted from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel, and the first one in color. It's also one of the best movies to come from the beloved Hammer Studios' horror line. Peter Cushing makes a great Sherlock Holmes, and even looks like the character; it's a role he was born to play. Christopher Lee plays Sir Henry Baskerville, leaving André Morell in the role of Doctor Watson. The plot, of course, has Holmes investigating the legend of a murderous hellhound on the moors. Terence Fisher, the most beloved of the Hammer horror directors, is at the helm.
