Episode #003 – The Hound of the Baskervilles

November 30, 2011 by · 2 Comments 

Can you guess what movie the Down Placers discuss in Episode #003 of 1951 Down Place? Why, it’s elementary – it’s 1959′s The Hound of the Baskervilles (dir. Terence Fisher). Casey, Derek and Scott discuss the film, their own (sometimes limited) exposure to the stories of Sherlock Holmes and how this film impacts their own view of Hammer’s horror films. Additionally, the guys go over the monthly Feedback and they discuss how you can decide the film for a future episode.

(In the introduction to this month’s show, Scott mentions Casey’s Gothic Glamour segment in this episode. Due to time, this month’s segment has been pushed back to Episode #004.)

  2. […] A great venture into Holmes lore, I’m only sad Hammer abandoned the character after the film. The setpieces are wonderful, the music appropriately overwrought, and the lurid color is breathtaking! A must-see for all Holmes and Hammer fans alike! This film was featured in the third episode of the Hammer podcast 1951 Down Place. […]
