This is a 29" x 43" Argentine one-sheet poster for the 1959 Terence Fisher Hammer Productions Gothic horror mystery The Hound of the Baskervilles based on the novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, screenplay by Peter Bryan and starring Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes and Christopher Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville. Plot summary: On a moor a legendary dog called the Hound of the Baskervilles is believed to lie in wait for opportunities to kill any member of the Baskerville family who ventures there alone, as revenge for the murder centuries earlier of a servant girl by Sir Hugo Baskerville [David Oxley]. This became known as "the curse of Sir Hugo." In the time of Sherlock Holmes the legend has become an issue in the life of Sir Henry Baskerville, the new owner of Baskerville Hall. Holmes, who has been called in to investigate, puts Watson [Andre Morell] in charge of watching over Sir Henry; Watson runs into unexpected difficulties.
