Frederic March deservedly won an Oscar playing goodhearted, frustrated Jekyll and vile Hyde. His make-up and mannerisms paved the way for villains like Star Trek's Klingons - over-the-top, yet intimidating when serious. Here and in "Queen Christina", the director has visual flair with effective pans, close-ups, and P.O.V shots. Lusty, emotive Miriam Hopkins is well-cast as Hyde's terrified crush.

(OK) Early talkie and Mamoulian masterpiece, peek of precode morality and exploration on evil and instincts. March is appaing, monster (its a terror film outside the genre), the rounds with Hopkins are pure anthology
View all Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reviews
Dr. Henry Jekyll believes that there are two distinct sides to men - a good and an evil side. He believes that by separating the two, man can become liberated. He succeeds in his experiments with chemicals to accomplish this and transforms into Hyde to commit horrendous crimes. When he discontinues use of the drug, it is already too late.
Release date: 3 January 1932

Taste of Cinema's Essential Pre-Code Hollywood (30 movies items)

"Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella about a doctor who believes he can separate men’s evil streak from its civilized side had been adapted to the screen many times before, but no previous version had the innovative camera work nor the bold sexuality the Paramount Pre-Code carries. The story’s polemical and adult content is dealt with extreme openness and technical skill. March’s physical transformation looks good even to our modern eyes, but the ultimate triumph of the film has to be credi"

Brilliant film, with an outstanding Fredric March

“Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a wonderful split personality tale from Robert Louis Stevenson, and out of all the film versions I have seen, this is the most stylish, exciting and somewhat erotic. For one thing the direction is efficient, and the screenplay is intelligent and sophisticated. Also really impressive are the stylish cinematography and the completely convincing make up.But the acting was what really drove it; Fredric March, what can I say? Absolutely outstanding, thoroughly deserving of the Oscar, he was great as the good hearted yet ambitious physician Dr Jekyll especially in the truly touching moment where he breaks down in front of Muriel, but he is even more impressive as the animalistic Mr Hyde with the help of the very impressive single take transformation scenes.

"Robert Louis Stevenson's novella about a doctor who believes everyone has the potential for good and evil in them and, in his experiments, manages to unleash the evil side of himself to an extent that is beyond his control, has been adapted many times but never so successfully as in the underrated Rouben Mamoulian's 1931 take on the classic psychological horror. 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde' is perhaps best remembered for Frederic March's astonishing central performance which won him a well-deserved"
