Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1920) with live music

This famous story has been filmed many times, but this silent version captures the Victorian atmosphere and struggle between good and evil realistically, while legendary actor, John Barrymore is unforgettable in the lead role. A true horror movie, this film is considered to be most faithful to the original book.
“In this 1920 silent version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, John Barrymore is dignified and virtuous as Dr Henry Jekyll, and transforms into Id incarnate as the lascivious Mr. Hyde.
