With the release of this feature and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," all 14 classic films by Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce will have finally been released in a quality DVD format. The UCLA Theatre Archives has done an outstanding job in restoring and thus preserving these great films from 35mm master copies into the digital format, sometimes literally being forced to piece together the celluloid remnants they found. It took the archivists years to complete the entire project, but is well worth the wait. The result is that the black and white images seem as fresh today as when the films were released to theatres more than 40 years ago. The archivists deserve a hearty thanks from all movie fans concerned with preserving America's classic cinema heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Atmospherically, "The Hound of the Baskervilles" is arguably the best of the 14 Holmes films, and the only one based specifically on a Conan Doyle story. It, and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes," are the only two "period" films in the series and run longer, the remainder taking place in then modern-day England and America of the late 30s and early 40s and run about 90 minutes each. In both "Hound" and "Adventures," Holmes dons his deerstalker cap, popularized by original Strand Magazine illustrator Sidney Paget who made the image synonymous with the great detective. It is interesting to note that in the first of the non-period films in the series, Holmes reaches for his handy deerstalker, but is stopped by Watson. "Holmes," Watson said, "you promised." Leaving the deerstalker on the peg, Holmes grabs a "modern" hat instead.

20th Century Fox's 1939 production of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" wasn't the first film based on Arthur Conan Doyle's classic novel, but as the first Sherlock Holmes film set in the Victorian Era in which the master sleuth was so perfectly at home, it is a landmark. More importantly, it also marked the first appearance of Basil Rathbone as Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Dr. Watson.
Previous screen versions of the Conan Doyle tales brought Holmes into the 20th century, but without emphasizing the modern trappings as much as Universal would in their series of films beginning in 1942. There is much to admire in this version, particulary Rathbone, the actor so perfectly cast that he would never succeed in distancing himself from the Great Detective of 221 B Baker Street. The screenplay by Ernest Pascal is generally faithful to the novel, and the cast is superb with such masters of menace as Lionel Atwill and John Carradine offering excellent support.
The fog-shrouded moors are impressive (though less so when compared to the moors of Universal's "The Scarlet Claw"), but the producers made one misstep by assigning Sidney Lanfield to direct. Better known for musicals and comedies, genres to which he would return in the future (including several Bob Hope comedies), Lanfield fails to conjure the sense of mystery for which the later Universal films, directed by Roy William Neill, would so brilliantly achieve. But if this version of the tale just misses the mark as a masterpiece, it is still very good indeed. It was also daring at the time by acknowledging, in its final line of dialogue, one of the master detective's less admirable habits.

You will read dozens of reviews of the movie, I'm sure, so I'll leave my review of the movie to two words: "LOVED IT."
DVD quality is really quite good; of course, leaps and bounds beyond ANYTHING available to the home market EVER before. Nice, clean packaging with a thin-looking but richly written booklet included inside. The disc has the photo from the front imprinted, with almost a purple tint... for nighttime I suppose.
As I understand, this restoration was done a number of years ago, and was not digital... I believe it, although I will say I believe the restorers squeezed every square inch of detail out of their source material possible in the analog domain.
First, the flaws: there are still occasional nicks and scratches, although not many more than I see in my DVD of "It's A Wonderful Life."
The sound has some low-level hiss, and there is occasional pop and crackle, only occasionally (once? Twice?) of any significant volume.
About 18 minutes in there appears to be some minor damage, possibly the degrading of the nitrate print they were working from?
Additionally, there are about three places in the film where a single frame appears to be warped, creating a "blip" in the flow of the motion on the screen.
Also odd was my first playing: when it came to the end of the 9th chapter, instead of going on to the 10th it jumped back to the beginning of the 9th! This might have been my player, as I was unable to reproduce this either by scanning back or by playing through the movie from the beginning.
One other oddity is that in multiple places the background seems to "pulse," usually getting slightly darker, and it appears to be two "pulses" per second.
