IMDb lists 48 titles in this British series, made between 1920 and 1923. I suppose that output makes consistent quality difficult, and of the three I have seen this is definitely the worst. But, it's still a lot of fun. It reminds me of Yo-Yo Ma's comment about his cello, made in the time of Bach: it is a link with a beloved past. To think that Sir Arthur probably saw this movie--the rumor is he approved of Eille Norwood for the role--and that the stories were still being written when this series was made: well, that's neat.
So, I can be kind with my criticism and enjoy it for its own sake. But, I sure hope The Hound of the Baskervilles turns up some day.
