Product Details

Considered by fans and critics alike as the best of the many adaptations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic whodunit, director Terence Fisher's Hammer version of The Hound of the Baskervilles is rich in mood, thrills and some fantastic performances. Peter Cushing's turn as everybody's favorite sleuth from Baker Street is one of his all time best, as is Andre Morell's performance as Dr. Watson. Beautifully filmed in Technicolor by Jack Asher, this often told tale comes alive like never before with its exquisite style and remains to this day as the quintessential version. This MGM Home Entertainment disc presents the film in a very attractive letterboxed transfer (1.66:1) and with its original English mono soundtrack. French and Spanish mono tracks are also available. The disc also contains multiple subtitle options. Also included on the disc is a very nice 13 minute interview with Christopher Lee (who plays the cursed Sir Henry Baskerville in the film), as well as Lee reading excerpts from the story itself. The film's original full-screen black and white trailer is also available. Whether you're a fan of Hammer films in general or a fan of Sherlock Holmes in particular, this disc should be on the top of your must-own list.
