The Hound of the Baskervilles (Der Hund von Baskerville) is a German 1937 detective movie, loosely based on the famous novel by Arthur Conan Doyle. It is directed by Czech director Karel Lamac (credited as Carl Lamac) and stars Bruno Güttner as Sherlock Holmes and Fritz Odemar as Dr. Watson.

The following weapons were used in the film The Hound of the Baskervilles (Der Hund von Baskerville):


Becker & Hollander Beholla

For the most of the movie Dr. Watson (Fritz Odemar) carries a pistol that appears to be a Becker & Hollander Beholla.

Unidentified pistols

When Holmes (Bruno Güttner) and Watson (Fritz Odemar) fire at the Hound of Baskervilles, the latter has a different pistol of unclear model. Sauer 1913 is a possible but not nessessary guess.

For comparison: Sauer 1913 - 7.65 mm Browning (.32 ACP)
Holmes and Watson fire their pistols.

The pistol, used by Holmes when the duo fire at the Hound of Baskervilles and in the following scenes, may be one of a large row of generally similar pistols, inspired by FN Model 1910, like a German Kommer Model 4.

Stapleton (Erich Ponto) holds an unidentified pistol when he tries to escape after his plan failed. This gun bears resemblance with a Walther Model 8 but it's again a vague guess.
