The Annual Film Evening: “Nothing But a Hound Dog”
November 18 @ 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm
“NOTHING BUT A HOUND DOG”
The Society’s 2021 Film Evening will be held on Thursday 18th November 2021, again using Zoom to stream the film and provide live simultaneous chat during the showing, for those who enjoy such discussion. Chat is easy to hide if you would prefer just to watch the film. The meeting will be open from 7.15pm to allow everyone to get connected in good time.
Our host Matthew J. Elliott makes a welcome return. He is a scriptwriter well known for the US radio series “The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes”. Matthew was the principal writer for the Society’s own series of audio plays, performed by the Old Court Radio Theatre Company (you can listen to them or download them at https://www.sherlock-holmes.org.uk/category/podcasts/).
This year, Matthew will be screening two versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles. We begin with the 1921 silent version, starring Eille Norwood and Hubert Willis as Dr Watson. That will be followed by the 1937 Der Hund von Baskerville, with Bruno Guttner as Holmes and Fritz Odemar as Mister Watson. Two different adaptations, one silent, the other a talkie, one in English, the other in German. There can only be one winner!
Again, there will be no charge for attending this meeting. Please note that you will need to ensure your Zoom version is up to date.
