The Hound of the Baskervilles (1958)

Directed by Terence Fisher

This is one of Hammer's best-looking films, rich in the pastel shades for which cinematographer Jack Asher was so renowned. It is also perhaps the best adaptation of the novel by Conan Doyle - at least compared to the rather pedestrian 1939 version with Basil Rathbone. Cushing gives one of his most memorable and nuanced performances as Sherlock Holmes, and is very ably supported by the ever-reliable Andre Morell as Doctor Watson.
