Dr. Jekyll experiments with a drug to bring out his evil side.

Uhh, King Baggott? Your Dr. Jekyll was stagey and artificial, but I’m quite willing to chalk that up to taste. But whoever told you that the way to make Mr. Hyde scary and threatening was to look like Jerry Lewis and walk like Groucho Marx was joking; I wouldn’t follow their advice if I were you.

Basically, another short (about 25 minutes) early version of the tale, and one of the weakest. Opt for Barrymore or Cruze; you’ll be glad you did.
