Critic Reviews for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Well shot by Joseph Ruttenberg, and the transformations are effectively handled, but it's generally shallow and anaemic.
A little Freudian theory is a dangerous thing. It can make a piece of errant hokum dizzy with significance.
Under Victor Fleming's direction, it's sober and turgid but far from unwatchable, thanks exclusively to the caliber of the performances.
If you mess with perfection, you end up with the beast.
Conventions of the time did not allow director Victor Fleming to examine the powerful sexual undertones of Stevenson's tale, robbing the film of much of its potential insight
Audience Reviews for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
One of my favourite horror movies of the 40s. Great cast, classic story, it's exciting, dramatic, and somewhat romantic. I love it.
Tracy is badly miscast here and it almost fatal hurts the film but the MGM gloss and beauty of both Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner compensate somewhat.
Very very nice version of the classic tale.
