Hund von Baskerville. Dir. Carl Lamac. Perf.
Bruno Güttner and Fritz Odemar. Ondra-Lamac, 1937.
A series of silent films loosely based on The Hound of the Baskervilles
was made in Germany from 1914-1921, and another in 1929. This 1937
"talking" film was, according to the "Internet Movie Database"
of two movies found in Hitler's bunker at his death. The other was
Der Mann, wer Sherlock Holmes war (The Man who was
Sherlock Holmes; 1937), a story about two con men who impersonate
Holmes and Watson. It is well known that Hitler loved movies, but
we have no indication of why he seemed so fond of Sherlock Holmes.
