Product description

Product Description

Dudley Moore, Peter Cook, Kenneth Williams "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" as you've never seen it before. Peter Cook and Dudley Moore (Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson) give us their unique interpretation of the Conan Doyle classic, supported by an all-star cast of British comedy greats. What is the curse that hangs over the Baskerville family? What is the terrible beast that roams the moor? Exhausted by his most recent case, Holmes sends Watson to Baskerville Hall to solve the mystery on his own while he takes a well deserved rest in London's nightspots. Watson, on his first solo case, investigates the strange goings on at Baskerville Hall and begins to suspect everyone he questioins, including himself, until frustrated at every step, he has to call for the great detective to help him out. Their discovery at Grympen Mire of the real Hound of the Baskervilles is too horrible to tell. Special Features Star Biographies Trailer

From Amazon.co.uk

It could have been a stroke of genius reuniting Peter Cooke and Dudley Moore in a send-up of The Hound of the Baskervilles. In the event, director Paul Morrissey goes for Carry On-style humour: plenty of coarse word-play and camp innuendo, but little wit or subtlety. Cooke is a rather androgynous Sherlock Holmes, while Moore inexplicably attempts a Welsh accent to portray Dr Watson (his cameo as Holmes' mother is far less contrived). The support cast is a compendium of British comedy acting of the period--all now departed, and clearly relishing the one-liners and musical-hall farce. There are excellent contributions from Max Wall, Joan Greenwood (priceless in the seduction scene), and--in one of his last major screen appearances--Terry Thomas, as well as a winning "madame" from Penelope Keith. Don't expect even a free adaptation of Conan Doyle's novel, just let the humour take its enjoyably silly course.

On the DVD: The Hound of the Baskervilles film reproduces very decently in the 4:3 aspect ratio, with stereo sound that's not too artificial in effect. Special features consist of nine biographical overviews, the re-release trailer, and a six-minute interview with director Morrissey. Die-hard fans of "Pete and Dud" will most welcome the inclusion of the original theatrical feature, playing for almost 80 minutes and featuring extra footage of Moore's wonderfully inept piano playing. --Richard Whitehouse
