Many centuries ago, Sir Hugo Baskerville (Artur Malkowsky) killed his wife (Anna Waag) ... and was in turn killed by a big dog immediately afterwards - and thus the legend of the Hound of the Baskervilles was born.

Back in the now, Sir Charles Baskerville (Friedrich Kayssler) receives the visit of a distant cousin, Beryl (Alice Brandt), whom he invites to stay overnight. Later this night though, he is lured out to the moors, attacked by a dog, and killed by fright.

At the reading of the will, Beryl expects to be the sole heir of the Baskerville estate ... but to everybody's surprise, Sir Charles also had a closer cousin, Henry (Peter Voss), who is going to inherit pretty much everything, even though he has been out of the country for decades.

When Henry arrives in England, Doctor Mortimer (Ernst Rotmund), a friend of the Baskerville family, tries to hire master detective Sherlock Holmes (Bruno Güttner) to act as Henry's bodyguard, but Holmes turns down the job and instead sends his associate Doctor Watson (Fritz Odemar) along as Henry's watchdog.

At the Baskerville estate, Watson is confronted with a whole array of suspects, including the Baskervilles' sinister butler Barrymore (Fritz Rasp), a convict hiding out in the moors (Paul Rehkopf), who will eventually turn out to be Mrs Barrymore's (Lilly Schönborn) brother, Beryl, who is suspected to be a golddigger, eccentric butterfly collector Stapleton (Erich Ponto), who seems to know the moors like tha back of his hands, and even Doctor Mortimer himself, who has an awfully large dog. And then there is that stranger who seems to be living in the moors ... and who - which will surprise noone who has read the story - eventually turns out to be Sherlock Holmes himself.

Eventually the convict is bitten to death by a dog, because he wore Sir Henry's laid off suit - which brings Holmes onto the right track, and soon he has found out that Stapleton is actually a distant cousin of the Baskervilles and Beryl's brother who is hell-bent on inheriting the estate, even if that means having to kill every Baskerville alive.Beryl was actually his accomplice, but she has since fallen in love with Sir Henry for real and tries everything to keep him out of her brother's reach ... which forces Stapleton to kidnap her and use her to lure Sir Henry out onto the moors - and then he has him attacked by his big dog. But luckily, Holmes and Watson are nearby to shoot the dog, then go after Stapleton ... who escapes in a coach. But somehow his coach strays off the track and right into the moors, and in his coach, Stapleton sinks to his premature grave.

The ending has Sir Henry and Beryl announding their wedding ...


A rather weak adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles, in which Sherlock Holmes seems to be little more than a supporting character, not appearing in the first half hour at all only to then disappearing from the film for another half hour after a few short scenes. Instead the romance of Sir Henry and Beryl gets center stage and the murder mystery is taking back seat and is destroyed by way too much dialogue saying way too little, with the solution being pulled out of the hat rather than the result of clever detective work. The moor-sets are scarcely used and no attempts at creating a properly creepy atmosphere are made.

A disappointment.
