John Barrymore is riveting as humanitarian scientist Dr. Henry Jekyll in this classic 1920 version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale. Dr. Jekyll, obsessed with separating the good and evil impulses in every person, creates a potion that transforms him into the demonic Mr. Hyde. Dr. Jekyll's on-camera transformation to Hyde contains a tour de force performance by John Barrymore. The initial transformation scene was achieved only through Barrymore's facial contortions without the use of makeup and remains a frightening, memorable sequence to this day.
