Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Hound Of The Baskervilles (1959) When Sir Charles Baskerville dies unexpectedly, his nephew and heir Sir Henry returns from South Africa. Dr. Mortimer. the local doctor, is concerned about Sir Henry's safety as he is convinced that Sir Charles was literally frightened to death. He consults Sherlock Holmes and recounts the tale of one Sir Hugo Baskerville who, several generations previously, had been killed by a huge hound and which now is believed by some to be a curse on the family. Holmes agrees to take on the case and it almost immediately becomes apparent that Sir Henry's life is in danger. Holmes doesn't believe in the legend of the Baskervilles or the supposed curse place upon them and sets out to find a more practical solution.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Sir Hugo Baskerville: Let loose the pack!
  • Sir Hugo Baskerville: Let the hounds of Hell take me if I can't track her down!
  • Doctor Richard Mortimer: But this is remarkable! Sherlock Holmes: Superficial. There is nothing remarkable about using one's eyes.
  • Sherlock Holmes: Do you imagine that I can prevent the Powers of Darkness?
  • Sherlock Holmes: This is, I think, a two-pipe problem.
Movie Trivia:
  • The first Sherlock Holmes movie to be filmed in color.
  • This film was planned to be the first in a series of many Sherlock Holmes films starring Peter Cushing, produced by Hammer Films. The audience disapproved of a Hammer film without any monsters and failed to turn up. The planned series was then dropped.
  • For his role as Sherlock Holmes he of course had to have a pipe but as Peter Cushing was either a non-smoker or didn't like the taste of the pipe, he kept a glass of milk always to hand to remove the taste.
  • Feature film debut of Michael Hawkins.
  • The hound they used was a real dog called Colonel. On the set before the hound attacks Christopher Lee's character Sir Henry Baskerville, they could not get Colonel to jump on Lee, so they started to 'prod' him into action. Lee gave up and suddenly, Colonel lunged on him and bit right through one of his arms.
