In this early version the classic "Hound of the Baskervilles" mystery is not faithfully adapted, Watson's character is absent and there are two Holmes. Holmes' foe is called Stapleton and he menaces Holmes' client Lord Henry and his fiancée, Laura Lyons, masquerading himself as Holmes. Hidden passages, hand bombs and mechanical devices abound, reminding more of a serial than of a Conan Doyle story.

Flicker Alley BD extra. Very early adaptation and it shows, with many parts of the presentation being much different than I would expect today, e.g., revealing the secret hatch door and whodunit right away. The mystery here didn't captivate me as much as in later adaptations. Fav scene: at the end when the bad guy backs up and boom there's a guy hidden in the suit of armor.

Not so much 'Holmes & Watson' as 'Holmes & pseudo-Holmes', and for a brief moment 'Stapleton & pseudo-Stapleton'. The shots of Stapleton (the real one that is, not Mr Holmes disguised as Stapleton) silhouetted against the dusk sky on the moors as he releases the beast hound and watches it with his field scope is most striking and an early example of the power of film to induce both terror and serenity in the viewer. Better watched as Oswald's play and not Doyle's novel.

Uses the title more as a lure than actually building the movie on the novel. Does still have some of the Sherlock Holmes feel to the mystery, but The Hound of the Baskervilles, it's not.
