Synopsis

The oft-filmed Conan Doyle classic (it had been made at least eight times previously) and the first American color version about how Holmes and Watson solve the baffling murder of an heir to the Baskerville fortune on the misty English moors. This was the pilot to a prospective Sherlock Holmes series that was to have rotated with the adventures of Hildegarde Withers and Nick Carter (with Eve Arden and Robert Conrad, respectively) in a regular program bringing to TV three popular fictional detectives. None of the three went beyond the pilot stage.
