Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a 1920 horror silent film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and released through Paramount/Artcraft. The film, which stars John Barrymore, was a film adaptation of the 1886 novella The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. John S. Robertson directed the production, and Clara Beranger wrote the screenplay, based on the 1887 stage play by Thomas Russell Sullivan that in turn was based on the novel.

The story, set in late Victorian London, portrays the tragic consequences of a doctor’s experiments in separating the dual personalities he thinks define all humans: one good, the other evil.
