The Hounds Of The Baskervilles :
Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles launched Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, the most famous detective pairing of all!
Dr. Mortimer (Lionel Atwill) comes to Holmes and Watson with a frightful tale : since an ancestor's brutal kidnapping of a village girl, the Baskerville family is cursed, doomed to die at the teeth of an infernal, spectral hound.
The latest to go, Sir Charles, was a friend of Mortimer's, and the elderly doctor wants Holmes' help in preventing the same fate from befalling his son Henry Baskerville (Richard Greene). Holmes must uncover if the danger is a myth or very real indeed.
The Voice Of Terror :
Mysterious wireless broadcasts, apparently from Nazi Germany, are heard over the BBC. They warn of acts of terror in England just before they take place.
Baffled, the Defence Committee's "Inner Council", led by Sir Evan Barnham (Reginald Denny), solicits the help of the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes.
For the sake of England's security, Holmes turns to London's underworld for assistance to uncover the covert Nazi clique and makes a startling revelation about a secret within the Council itself!

Comments about Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles / Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror:
Having enjoyed (or not!) many of the modern depictions of Sherlock Holmes and his Watson, I thought it would be pleasant to take a nostalgic trip back to my youth and watch one of the best loved actors in the role: Basil Rathbone threw himself most earnestly into the part, with Nigel Bruce ably acting as his foil. I loved watching this 1939 version of "Hound of the Baskervilles" again. It is faithful to Conan Doyle's story - I find it quite enchanting. Very pleasing. Atmospheric, beautifully filmed and scripted. A real classic. Magic. The "Voice of Terror" is a bonus, Doyle updated to WW2 to involve the Nazis. Good stuff.
