HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, THE (1929)

Silent with live musical accompaniment by Andrew Simpson; intro by Peter E. Blau, member of the Red Circle of Washington, DC

[DER HUND VON BASKERVILLE]
Long believed lost, this German-produced version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most famous Sherlock Holmes adventure, made at the very end of the silent era, has been restored by the San Francisco Silent Film Festival in partnership with the Polish National Film Archive. Directed by Richard Oswald, who previously adapted the story for the stage and wrote the screenplay for a 1914 German film version, the film combines the best of Doyle's deductive mystery-solving with the dramatic lighting, inventive camerawork and breathtaking set design that were the hallmarks of silent-era German film production. DIR Richard Oswald; SCR Arthur Conan Doyle, Herbert Juttke, Georg C. Klaren; PROD Fred Lyssa. Germany, 1929, b&w, 80 min. NOT RATED
Restoration by the Polish National Film Archive (Filmoteka Narodowa– Instytut Audiowizualny) and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.
