Lee/Cushing, Howard/Dan #4: The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) and other Sherlocks

In our final (for now) re-upload of old material from The Lee/Cushing Podcast, Howard and Dan look at the Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee’s sixth film together, and third for Hammer Films. 1959’s The Hound of the Baskervilles starred Cushing as Sherlock Holmes and Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville.

In a separate discussion (recorded in an unfortunately noisy cafe) they also consider the numerous other film and TV productions which saw either Lee or Cushing venturing into Arthur Conan Doyle’s world.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) and the existing episodes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes (1968) have been released on DVD and are available to rent from Amazon Prime and YouTube Movies.  Sherlock Holmes: The Golden Years (1991) is part of Amazon Prime‘s current UK package.
