#throwbackthursday : IT'S 53 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH that Hammer films 'Hound of the Baskervilles' was released in the USA. 'Hound' was Hammer films only dip into the Sherlock Holmes stories, though both Cushing and Lee went on to play the detective for several film companies over the years. Here is a rarely seen on set photograph of both Christopher Lee (Sir Henry Baskerville) and Marla Landi (Cecile) during a location shoot for the film on Chobham Common, Surrey, England. Although one of the most popular Sherlock stories, Holmes features much less on the page....and so in the film too, Dr Watson (Andre Morell) gets more screen-time than Cushing's Holmes!
The UK Press AD that appeared just two months before the release of Hammer films 'The Hound of the Baskervilles' in May 1959.
