Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)

Type: New Blu-Ray


For this moody M-G-M take on the oft-told Robert Louis Stevenson terror tale, Spencer Tracy eschewed elaborate make-up in portraying the buttoned-up Victorian medico and the lecherous, brutal side of his persona unleashed by his chemical dabbling into the human psyche. His toils lead to tragedy for Jekyll's prim, loyal fiancée (Lana Turner) and the sultry Cockney barmaid (Ingrid Bergman) targeted by Hyde's lusts. Donald Crisp, Ian Hunter, C. Aubrey Smith, Barton MacLane co-star; Victor Fleming directs. 113 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English DTS HD mono Master Audio; Subtitles: English (SDH).
