Plot summary

Accordint to the rumour, a beastly howl is heard in the moors of Dartmoor, and a hellhound is killing every member of the Baskerville family.[4] Sherlock Holmes and his assistant Dr. Watson go there to investigate the case, only to discover that behind this mystery there is a local farmer who is using a phosphorescent dog to kill the heirs in order to obtain the inheritance.[5]



Contemporary reviews found the film lacking.[6] Bioscope claimed: "It is upon the dialogue of Edgar Wallace rather than sustained action that the producer relies to hold his audience, and the development becomes tedious in the attempt to piece together the various phases of the mystery."[2] Picturegoer said: "This picture fails to do justice to Conan Doyle's thrilling Sherlock Holmes story."[2]


The first sound version of The Hound of the Baskervilles, it had a budget of £25,000 (equivalent to £1,800,000 in 2021).[7]

On 28 February 1931 Lustleigh railway station, on the then-Great Western Railway, was used as the location for 'Baskerville' station at which Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are seen arriving.[8]

For many years, it was believed that only the (silent) picture negative of this movie still existed.[3] However, in 1991, a complete set of negatives and soundtracks were donated to the British Film Institute (BFI) by the Rank Corporation. As such, the film now survives intact (and with sound) in the BFI archives.[5]
