The critic for magazine turned in a flip notice, praising Rathbone and adding, "the only serious bit of miscasting in The Hound of the Baskervilles is in the title role. The proper selection, obviously, would have been a calf-sized Norwegian elkhound; equipped with fright wig and false fangs. Instead, Associate producer Gene Markey, perhaps in the delightful confusion attendant on his recent marriage to Hedy Lamarr, put his O.K. on a friendly old Great Dane named Chief, who, despite all his yelpings, cannot even make his bark seem worse than his bite." Incidentally, the title character was actually played by a dog named "Blitzen" - the publicity department at Fox rechristened the pooch "Chief" since the former name sounded too Germanic in the volatile pre-WWII year of 1939.
The Hound of the Baskervilles is about a man who is murdered and everyone believes it to have been by a giant Hound from hell--a supernatural dog/beast that has been plaguing the men of his family for years according to local legend. Watson is there, and Holmes as well, to solve the mystery and save the day. This one was adapted for the screen an amazing 24 times. Required reading for everyone, IMO.
