Critic Reviews for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Camera trick of changing a central figure from the handsome Fredric March into the bestial, ape-like monster Hyde, carries a terrific punch, but in each successive use of the device -- and it is repeated four times -- it weakens in hair-raising effort.
Dr Jekyll combines gothic horror, aristocratic romance and madcap Freudian psychodrama into a dizzying, exhilarating brew.
Fredric March is the stellar performer in this blood-curdling shadow venture.
This most enduring adaptation of the Faustian moral fable is totally satisfying.
Audience Reviews for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
The overacting is too much for me but the transformation scenes are pretty cool. A classic, but not for me.
Robert Louis Stevenson's cautionary tale of obsession and dark passions is given fine treatment by Mamoulian, the make-up artists and, of course, Fredric March as the young impatient doctor who cannot wait to taste the fruits of life. Miriam Hopkins, too, is in rare form as the not-so-sweet object of desire.
who could compete with that sizzling seductive whisper..."come back...SOON...." with a sexy leg rolling by the bedside to scratch your libido into thousands of visceral hard-ons...ha! now i'm being bawdy. maybe just slightly obscene?
