The Hound of the Baskervilles is an American 1972 made for TV detective movie, based on the famous novel by Arthur Conan Doyle. It is directed by Barry Crane and stars Stewart Granger as Sherlock Holmes and Bernard Fox as Dr. Watson.
The following weapons were used in the film The Hound of the Baskervilles:
A snub nose revolver in Bulldog or RIC style is reused throughout the movie, seen in hands of Stapleton (William Shatner), Inspector Lestrade (Alan Caillou), as escaped convict and a prison guard. The revolver has faceted barrel and fluted cylinder.
Colt Model 1877 Lightning
Dr. Watson (Bernard Fox) carries a revolver that turns out to be a nickel plated Colt Model 1877 Lightning, lacking the ejector rod with its housing and the front sight. This is most likely a .38 version.
Double Barreled Shotgun
Arthur Frankland (John Williams) meets Watson with a Double Barreled Shotgun.
In one scene prison guards who hunt for escaped convicts fire a field cannon to bring up the body of an escapee who drowned in a pond. It was a real (and based only on preconceptions) practice in UK and USA in 19th century, described among others by Mark Twain in "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn".
