Murnau's Second film is among the LOST: Synopsis follows.
13 September 2001 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

This is an adaptation of Stevenson's DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. Dr. Warren, a rich London doctor, can change himself into the dreadful Mr. O'Connor. It is supposed that as with NOSFERATU, Murnau did not bother to secure film rights from the Stevenson estate and thus changed the names. Contemporary reviews mainly praise Conrad Veidt's performance in the dual lead.

This is among the LOST films - no negative or positive materials are known to exist.

Above gleaned from Lotte Eisner's biography on Murnau.
