Hollywood and their brethren always manage to jazz up Baskerville, with varying results. Probably the Brett version is the best.
I'd read most of the Holmes stories when I was a child, and only recently reread The Hound of the Baskervilles early last year. I was disappointed, it felt unfriendly and awkward. I hated the way Holmes treated Watson, and felt the whole thing over rated.
Ding! I think you just hit on the reason I dislike the stories! Holmes is always such a condescending snot.
