Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(John S. Robertson, US 1920, 85 min., 35mm)

Silent Tuesdays. John Barrymore delivers spectacular and chilling performances as both title characters in this superb adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel. Dr. Jekyll’s theory of man’s dual nature inspires him to experiment in releasing his own dark side and accidentally turns himself into the murderous Mr. Hyde. This version is widely recognized as the greatest silent film rendition (there were at least four!) of the legendary horror story. Live piano by Philip C. Carli.
