Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

Day 22 has been considered Peter Cushing’s day in the past, so today is no different. Tonight we start with an interview from 1983 where Cushing is out promoting House of the Long Shadows. It might seem like the sort of interview you’ve seen a dozen times before, but do yourself a favor and watch it through to the end for a surprise.

For tonight’s feature, we go to the man himself in 1959 for his first appearance as Sherlock Holmes in Hammer’s The Hound of the Baskervilles. Cushing’s Watson is André Morell (Quatermass) and your Sir Henry for this evening is Sir Christopher Lee. Enjoy.
