The Hound Of The Baskervilles Review

Image for The Hound Of The Baskervilles

Holmes discovers a plot to kill Sir Henry Baskerville by means of a vicious hound, the plot being a product of a mysterious family curse.


A bizarre teaming of Warhol Factory director Paul Morrissey with a cast of top-rate British comedians, this founders badly.

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore are ghastly as a Jewish Holmes and a Welsh Watson, and the gags mainly involve Moore's face on the receiving end of a fountain of chihuahua pee or Exorcist-style green vomit.

This founders badly - a top rate cast riduced to ridiculous farce.
