retro trailer: ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

I can’t wait to see Steven Moffat’s new Sherlock Holmes adaptation — the first episode is called “A Study in Pink” *snort* — which debuted tonight on BBC One. While I wait, here’s look at a 1959 Hammer film — a more faithful adaptation, it seems — starring Peter Cushing as Holmes, André Morell as Watson, and Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville.

The Hound of the Baskervilles is available on DVD in Region 1 from and from, and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K.
