John Barrymore rocketed to movie super-stardom with his bold double performance in this horror classic. Chews scenery and throats with equal relish. Perhaps a bit too much at times.
He is ably supported by Martha Mansfield (Jekyll’s fiancee) and Nita Naldi (Hyde’s mistress). The makeup is justly famous, as are the spectacularly creepy visual effects.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.When Hyde threatens Jekyll’s fiancee, the good doctor poisons himself and kills both of them.
If it were a dessert it would be: Death by Oreo Cupcakes. It’s a cookie! It’s a cupcake! It’s light! It’s dark! One thing’s certain: it’s a classic.
Availability: Released on DVD and Bluray.
