Film Poster Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920)

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale gets an early treatment here with John Barrymore as the kindly doctor who believes everyone has a duel nature. The transformation scene, where Jekyll turns into the twisted Mr. Hyde, is as transfixing now as it was nearly a century ago!

The cast includes Martha Mansfield as the woman loved by Jekyll, and Nita Naldi as the dance hall girl seduced by Jekyll’s evil alter ego.

DIRECTOR : John S. Robertson
CAST : Martha Mansfield, Charles Lane, John Barrymore, Brandon Hurst
