Novel to Film

Since it was first published in 1901, Arthur Conan Doyle's adventure has been translated into scripts and screenplays and reinterpreted as films and stage plays numerous times. What choices do screenwriters and directors need to make? How do their choices impact the meaning and interpretation of a scene?

In this scene from Masterpiece Theatre's The Hound of the Baskervilles, Dr. Watson visits Merripit House for the first time and meets the enigmatic Beryl Stapleton.
