Trivia

En route to Baskerville Hall, Watson meets Lestrade who is curious as to why he is in town. Watson replies he is there for "the sailing" and when Lestrade tells him there is none, Watson replies "I must have been misinformed." This is similar to Bogart's reply to Claude Rains when the latter tells him there are no waters in Casablanca (1942). See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Lestrade believes he's captured Laura Lyons' killer, Holmes quotes from Scripture: "Love is as strong as death, jealousy as cruel as the grave." He and Lestrade both agree that it's from Isaiah 6:8. It's not. It's from Song of Songs 8:6. And the actual quote is "Love is strong as death, jealousy is cruel as the grave." See more »

Quotes

Sherlock Holmes: But without the imagination Watson, there would be no horror.

A wonderful film
26 March 2000 | by (Barcelona,Spain) – See all my reviews

Maybe have seen this version 50 times and I continue without getting tired. Always encounter some new detail. Above all is Ian Richardson, S.H., that embroiders the paper. The sir Hugo scene with the girl in the swamp, and the horse being in death agony is memorable. As much the decorations as the exterior are magnificent. For everything it and more I give him a 10.

Until the next one.
