The Hound of the Baskervilles was the first American color version of the tale, and was produced by ABC-TV for their Movie of the Weekend. The production was one of three pilots for a series of television movies featuring literary sleuths with the others being Nick Carter and Hildegarde Withers. The production utilized sets from other productions, mainly horror films.
The ratings were poor and reviews were bad which caused the proposed series of tele-films to be shelved.
The Los Angeles Times called it "laborious, talky, often poorly staged and it suffers intermittently with show and tell direction" although it thought Granger and Fox were "quite acceptable" in their roles.
