Before there were some short films on the history of the doctor with a split personality, but this is the first feature film history adapting Stevenson's classic novel.

To the distant date it was shot, the merits of the movie are quite remarkable. To highlight the great performance in both roles, medical and alter ego, John Barrymore. Lon Chaney's contemporary, the characterization ... read more

If there is any classic figure from horror novels which actors aspire to play, I suspect that it is Dr. Jekyll and his animalistic id Mr. Hyde. Not only does the character allow for an actor to portray two distinct personas, but Mr. Hyde allows them indulge in both playing dark and naughty, and masking themselves underneath layers of makeup and costuming. It’s the chance to lose all semblance of... read more

Description: The story of man's battle with his own evil side is an ancient, archetypal one, and Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," published in 1886, is a timeless Victorian interpretation that captures the imaginations of modern audiences like no other.

" Still one of the most memorable transformations of Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde on screen where only acting is used to show the evil side of the character in John Barrymore's tour-de-force.
