In this early version the classic Hound of the Baskervilles mystery is faithfully adapted, although Watson’s character is absent. Holmes’ foe is called Stapleton and he menaces Holmes’ client Lord Henry and his fiancée, Laura Lyons.

***1/2. Based on a play. Interesting variation on Conan Doyle's novel. Dr. Watson doesnt take part in the story here and the bad guy is dressed up as Sherlock Holmes in order to fool Henry von Baskerville. I didn't see much of the well-known Moors either. But, all in all, recommended on account of its historical value.
