The Hound is the second-best outing of the Baz as Sherlock, and was his own favorite (for what that’s worth). In his autobiography he said something to the effect that if he’d only made this one Holmes movie he’d have ended up a lot less famous, but much happier as a creative artist. (Baz, you were such a snob in some ways, much as I love you). The movie is notable – or notorious – to movie buffs for two egregious or strange omissions. 1.There’s no soundtrack music. None. At All. 2. Rathbone was second-billed below Fox’s new contract-player, Richard hello I’m talking wallpaper Greene! – Ah the fine madness that was Hollywood’s Golden Age!
Anyhow, here are the captures…

ON THE PIC
yea,i agree that it was a crime baz was placed below richard greene in billing.he was the lead all the way.
this is the best web site.you should be proud !
The Hound of the Baskervilles is possibly the best Holmes movie ever made. Rathbone is superb and so is Nigel Bruce, playing it much straighter than in later films
Very cool. This is one of my favourite versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles!
Loving this place – Basil was the best Holmes ever and these captures are lovely.
I am in love with Matt. I never have seen such beautiful high-res caps so artfully done. Lovely
It’s like 1,000 frames of Baskervilles. Give Matt a hug or something for this. WOOOOOT!
