Good film and great Holmes, but BAD LOOKING AND SOUNDING
(5 out of 5 stars)
"THIS MOVIE LOOKS VERY GRAINY AND THE SOUND IS FILLED WITH STATIC, but if you don't mind those things it's not bad. Wonter's films are in terrible shape, but he's damn good. I enjoy him in all his Holmes films despite their rough condition. I give Wonter 5 stars."
Silver Blaze look out !
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Murder at the Baskervilles is a new version of Silver Blaze. The evil Professer Moriarty is put in the film for some extra flavor so is Sir Henry Baskerville (who really has noting to do with the story). This is a great film."

"Despite Moriarty taking one of his long drops at the end of the Arthur Wontner's second film as the great consulting detective, The Triumph of Sherlock Holmes, by the time he made his reappearance two films later in Silver Blaze/Murder at the Baskervilles, Scotland Yard seem to have forgotten he ever existed, let alone perished. Still, at least the film makes up or it by giving him a nice lair, a disused tube station with a nice art deco desk and a handy lift shaft for unwelcome visitors. Of the Wontner Holmes films, this is the highest regarded, and while it's not as strong as The Sign of Four, it's a good yarn. The moral of the tale: never eat curry a few days before a big race. Sadly the public domain DVD takes a bit of effort: although decent prints do exist in the UK TV, every expense has been spared for this DVD release, so don't be surprised if you have to rewind to catch the odd line of dialogue thanks to a noisy soundtrack."
