The Hound of the Baskervilles is a 1921 British mystery film directed by Maurice Elvey and starring Eille Norwood, Catina Campbell and Rex McDougall.[1] It is based on the Sherlock Holmes novel The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle. It was made by Stoll Pictures, Britain's largest film company at the time.[2]


Critical reception[edit]

Allmovie noted that the film sticks closely to the original story, but "doesn't even come close to the definitive 1939 talkie starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce -- for one thing, there are far too many title cards -- but it still has its moments, mostly involving moody shots of the moors." [3]
