  1. ΞRIC B∆D TASTΞ's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    in this version i like that the optical transformation is very decent, compared to several others.

  2. msmichel's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Handsomely produced but poorly cast take on the classic Stevenson novel. Compares so poorly to the '31 and '20 versions. Spencer Tracy gives a course in overacting in a performance he didn't even like. Poor Ingrid Bergman in one of her early Hollywood turns fares poorly as well with her Swedish Cockney accent!!!

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Autre version du célèbre mythe de l'homme double, une nature foncièrement bonne, une autre portée vers le mal et la méchanceté, qui se regarde avec un plaisir évident malgré la répétition des thèmes habituels. Le sujet fut abordé (entre autres) par Mamoulian, Renoir, Fisher, Fleming, Jerry Lewis... www.cinefiches.com

  4. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    The first movie I watched on the subject when I was a teenager. It is a quite good adaptation from the novel. Maybe too polished, typified and overplayed to be really convincing. I prefere the twisted nightmarish version of Borowzyck or "Hands of the ripper" by the Hammer prod.

  5. SpacePirate's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Not a bad adaptation, just prefer the silent Barrymore version. Its much more atmospheric, which adds a lot of depth to the story. Still worth a look

  6. Aardsy's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Too much polish. I wanted it cheap and scary.

  7. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  8. Karl J. Kipling's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Forget the accents (Spencer speaks Spencer, Bergman cockney by way of Sweden): this is a dark, beautiful, sexy movie, a visual tour de force, a meditation on the allure of evil, and risque as all hell for 1941: before Hyde makes her his sex slave, Bergman's bar girl tries to seduce Jekyll in her bedroom in a scene that must have caused a lot of collars to steam. Terrific.

  9. Sebastian-Jr.'s rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Excellent performance from Spencer Tracy, the best cinema version of Dr Jeckyl & Mr Hyde ?

  10. MarcH's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    OK, but too gentlemanly. MGM in the 40s was the not the place for a horror film. The 1931 version is superior.

  11. Horror Whore's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Spencer Tracy is truly underrated in this role. His transformation is less over the top than 1931 version, but I find him far more frightening as Hyde.

  12. Spencer Draper's rating of the film Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

    Too much of a studio A-list production to be really effective.
