  1. msmichel's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    The first film of 14 in the Rathbone/Bruce series of Sherlock Holmes films is an entertaining and well executed adaptation of the Doyle story. The two lead players have a wonderful chemistry together that almost hides the weaknesses of the supporting players.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    One of the best in the Rathbone / Bruce series with a unique Gothic atmosphere and it stays pretty true to the novel which is not a bad thing.

  3. the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    Practically defines the iconic characters on film, but does not quite nail the tone needed for the quasi-Gothic mystery tale. So it never quite reaches its fullest promise - which is fine, because it launched 13 more films to be safe. "Watson - the needle!"

  4. Log Lady's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    Black and white Dartmoor is mysterious, ominous, and just perfect for the mythical hound to roam around. Too bad the supporting actors are more wooden than usual.

  5. BobaFett's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    For me Basil Rathbone is THE classic Sherlock Holmes. This adaptation is pretty close to its literary source and has very atmospheric settings for the mythical Dartmoor, the buildings and even London. The ending is really very abrupt though.

  6. mjgildea's rating of the film The Hound of the Baskervilles

    Seeing the Hammer adaptation of Hound of the Baskervilles kind of ruined this one for me. It's not a bad movie and the chemistry between Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce seems a couple notches better than Hammer's production. This version comes off as less ominous and the ending seems abrupt to the point where you wonder if the production's financing got cut off. Not a bad movie, but Hammer's version is more rewarding.
