== About Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1920) ==
Based upon the 1886 novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” explores a psychological journey into the dark side of humankind. A scientific experiment sets up a good doctor’s transformation into a dangerous, hedonist, criminal alter ego. Will he be able to change back, or is it a one-way ticket to darkness? John Barrymore’s astounding acting terrified audiences and made the film a major hit. The American Society of Cinematographers’ landmark “Treasury of Visual Effects” says the film contains “one of the most terrifying moments in silent cinema.” (No spoilers.)
