Movie Info

This filmed version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's beloved Sherlock Holmes tale is a spoof. In the story, Holmes and Watson are ill-spoken provincials rather than the elegant Londoners of the original stories. The Hound, when it is found, turns out to be a large but lovable pooch.

Audience Reviews for The Hound of the Baskervilles

Spoof version of the classic Sherlock Holmes story with a strong cast of well knowns. Completely devoid of laughs - and if a spoof with a theoretically good cast has no laughs then it is just tiresomely self indulgent - tiresome indeed.
