Mamoulian’s 1931 adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic horror story—produced by Paramount at the same time that Universal was in the midst of its legendary monster movie cycle—has never been outdone. An astonishing work of early sound Hollywood cinema, filled with all manner of visual effects and experiments, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a textbook of all the possibilities of cinema. With Fredric March in his first Oscar-winning role and a sexy Miriam Hopkins as Mr. Hyde’s terrorized object of affection.
