Regarded as the most important of the Hound films made in Europe—and long considered lost—this German production was the last silent Sherlock Holmes film ever made. Seen here in two versions, one with English titles and one entirely in German with titles based on the original German records, Der Hund lives again. This newly restored version comes from an original 35mm Czech distribution print, recently discovered in a private collection and unseen until now. 1 hour, 1 DVD/Blu-ray dual format disc. B&W.
