Jessie Matthews in “There Goes the Bride” (1932) – reviewed by George

A really cute and funny film, this is Jessie Matthews’s second major picture; I can’t find her first, “Out of the Blue” (1931), or her third, “Midshipmaid Gob” (1932). She was a huge stage star in England, but I had … Continue reading

I suppose the first time you see Dr. Who, whoever portrays the good Dr. remains your prototype Who forever, always to be thought of as the real Dr. Who. So Tom Baker is MY Dr. Who. Despite my fondness and … Continue reading

Peter Cook is Sherlock Holmes in “The Hound of the Baskervilles” (1978) – reviewed by George

So, how many Baskerville Hounds have we shared so far? According to my count three (Basil Rathbone in 1939, and Peter Cushing in a theatrical film in 1959 and in a 2-part TV episode in 1968), making this version # … Continue reading

Peter Cushing is Sherlock Holmes in “Sherlock Holmes” (1968), Episodes 16 & 17, “The Hound of the Baskervilles” – reviewed by George

I’ve reviewed this title 2 times already: with Basil Rathbone (1939), and Peter Cushing (1959), and there are many more versions coming up. It is the most popular, most filmed title in the canon. That said, this is a very … Continue reading

Peter Cushing is Sherlock Holmes in “The Hound of the Baskervilles” (1958) – reviewed by George

This Peter Cushing vehicle is the first Holmes in color, but that very thing is what makes this version somewhat disappointing. You know how I complain about underlit scenes, but this whole movie is overlit, filmed in beautiful color, with … Continue reading
