The Hound of the Baskervilles (1978)

PG 11/01/1980 (US) DramaHorrorComedyThrillerCrimeMystery 1h 25m

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would turn in his Harris Tweeds if he saw what Pete and Dud have done to his classic tale of old rubbish!


Director Paul Morrissey applies a hefty dose of humor to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic detective story in this interpretation of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Comedian Peter Cook takes on the role of brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes, who's not so gifted here as he relegates much of the investigation of demonic dogs to his bumbling sidekick, Watson (Dudley Moore), while he spends time with his mother and searches for an assistant.
