Synopsis

Investigator Sherlock Holmes is on another case; a mystery involving a family curse. It is said that all future male heirs to Baskerville Hall will die a violent death upon the moors. And for several generations, the male heirs have been perishing from a vicious canine. It’s no surprise that the new heir to Baskerville Hall, Sir Henry Baskerville, wants answers to this prophesy. With the clever investigating of Holmes, the witty questions of his faithful pal Dr. Watson, and a handful of suspicious characters, the conclusion of this mystery ends with an unexpected twist.

“The agile, clear adaptation by Frederick Gaines is a version that loses little of Arthur Conan Doyle’s mystery, yet manages to turn what is anachronistic today into stylish wit and full-bodied humor.” –Minneapolis Tribune
