Hollywood Classic: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

This 1920 production is based on the story by Robert Louis Stevenson. Doctor Henry Jekyll’s enthusiasm for science and his selfless acts of service have made him a much-admired man, but when he is criticized for his reluctance to experience the more sensual side of life. He becomes fascinated with the two contrasting sides of human nature, and obsessed with the idea of separating them. He devises a formula that allows him to alternate between two completely different personalities, but it is not long before his alter ego Mr. Hyde tries to take over his life.
