Twenty years after their mutual adventure with the infamous hound, Sherlock Holmes (Wontner, in his last Holmes film), is summoned by his old friend Baskerville (Grossmith) to the West Country. Silver Blaze, a prized race horse, has been stolen and his groom murdered. The prime suspect is

Jack Trevor (Macrae), a young horseman involved with Baskerville's daughter, Diana (Gunn). Holmes discovers the steed on a nearby farm disguised with painted spots, and knows that his old nemesis Moriarty (Harding) is the real culprit. MURDER AT THE BASKERVILLES suffers from too slight a plot

stretched out to feature length. Wontner is good in his final portrayal of the great detective, and the film does have some interesting moments; but on the whole this is lackluster Holmes, an all too elementary case. Originally released as SILVER BLAZE in England in 1937, the American release was

held back until 1941 when American distributors, eager to capitalize on the success of the Basil Rathbone Holmes film, THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES, retitled it MURDER AT THE BASKERVILLES in an attempt to lure unwary moviegoers into the theater.
