    The Hound Of The Baskervilles (20th Century Fox, 1939). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    The first of 14 Sherlock Holmes movies made with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce, this classic tale by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would establish Rathbone as the definitive Sherlock Holmes. Taking place in both London and the lonely, barren moors of Devon, this intriguing mystery centers around the wealthy Baskerville family and their country estate. When the lord of the manor supposedly dies of a heart attack, an ancient legend of a hellish hound roaming the moors and seeking vengeance against the Baskervilles has the locals believing he didn't die of natural causes. Holmes is invited by Dr. Mortimer (Lionel Atwill) to investigate the matter, so he and his sidekick Watson head to the gloomy West Country where the exciting adventure of superstition and revenge unfold. This title card had a small tear in the bottom right corner, a small chip in the top border, a chip in the top left corner and a very small nick in the top right corner, all of which have been expertly addressed through professional restoration, making this rare, stunning card a fantastic find for any collector. Fine+.
