Dove Review

“Murder At The Baskervilles” is a suspenseful adventure, featuring the inimitable Sherlock Holmes (Arthur Wontner). His sidekick, Dr. Watson (Ian Fleming), helps Holmes as he investigates the murder of a man and the disappearance of a race horse named “Silver Blaze,” who was a favorite to win. What has happened to the horse, and what caused the man’s death? Leave it to Sherlock Holmes not only to see what others see, but to see what they don’t. The viewer will find this mystery captivating, as they watch Holmes solve it.

Professor Moriarty is apparently involved in the crime, and the “Napoleon of Crime” will be difficult to catch. But if anyone can catch him, Sherlock Holmes can. We enthusiastically award this film our Dove Seal for ages twelve-plus. “It’s elementary, my dear Watson” — this is a fun film to watch!
