Hound of the Baskervilles, The (1958)

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson solve the mystery surrounding the death of a baronet on bleak, forbidding Dartmoor and save the victim’s heir from a similar fate.

This Hammer adaptation emphasises the horror elements of Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel and provides excellent opportunities for Peter Cushing as Holmes and André Morell as, arguably, the definitive Dr Watson.
