The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)
Holmes : Peter Cushing
Watson : Andre Morell
A good version of the story with an opening sequence that shows Sir Hugo Baskerville murdering a young girl which brings down the curse on the family. Peter Cushing plays a pretty good Sherlock and Andre Morell plays a serious Dr. Watson.The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)
The production values for the story were good. The costumes and sets were bright and colorful. Christopher Lee does a good job playing Sir Henry Baskerville.
The story does seems to veers more towards horror than it does towards mystery and is different than most Sherlock Holmes movies.
