    I only saw the 1920 silent version with John Barrymore which is pretty good.

    Hadn’t seen this version nor the 1941 version starring Spencer Tracy, but they’re both on a DVD from Warner Bros. I’ll give both of them a look when I have the time!

    God, there’s no picture for this vid, just sound and a black screen. Does anybody else have that problem?

    @mcmikec84 I have had this problem with cinemassacre videos before. The last time it happened was last night. All I needed to do was refresh the page and try it again; it was fine the second time.

    I just watched this last night and I absolutely loved it! What a great film, and the acting by Frederich March was simply amazing.

    That transformation… happens to me every time I drink some Spanish absinth. Even looks like it.

    I never liked when in movies they portray Mr. Hyde as a disgusting monster. In the book he looks terrifying because you can feel the evil in him, but he’s never said to be disgusting, also evil is something sneaky, a monster makes you think more of beast fury than evil.
    To me it is better when instead of massive make-up they rely more on the acting ability to express evil, such in Spencer Tracy’s or John Malkovich’s portrays of the character.

    Say what you will about the novel or the movie…NOTHING was a horrifying as the Nintendo game!

    This movie (the version with Frederic March) apparently isn’t so easy to find. It isn’t available at either Netflix or Blockbuster.

    At 0:17 that’s how it is actually pronounced but people pronounced Jekyll wrong probably because of the way the name looks so it just stuck.

    Great movie James I have to say. After watching it again only last evening,I must say that it’s one hell-of a fine movie,The camera work alone is enough to put it way up there as one of the top horror movies of the early 1930’s or in-fact the whole decade.

    Fredric March won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his performance in this film. It was the first time a horror movie to receive an Oscar, and it was very much deserved. It won a second Oscar as well.

    Although most people assume and use the pronouncation “JACK-ILL”, and there is nothing wrong with this, actually it is pronounced “JEEK-AL”, so that Jeek rhymed with Seek.
    Hyde and Seek.
    It could even have meant Jeek-all, Seek all (as in seek everything)
