Right after Marcia and Ivy have been talking about a new theatre production and Hyde enters the room, the shadow of a boom mic is visible throughout much of the remaining scene with Hyde eating the grapes and playing the piano. The mic shadow, visible on the back wall, moves over to the doorway as Hyde enters, interrupting Ivy and Marcia, and follows him around the room. It's quite visible. See more »
so many people seem to prefer the older version of everything
Spencer Tracy is magnificent in this, doing Mr Hyde basically with changes in behavior and agility rather than heavy make-up. He scared me to death when he vaulted over a railing and down a couple fo flights of stairs.
This is more of a thriller than a horror movie and done long before it became fashionable to throw tons of money and big-name performers at horror classics in order to produce blockbusters that were once just silly.
This supposedly cleaned-up version has Hyde asking Ingrid Bergman if she likes him because he's a little bit Jeckyll or Jeckyll because he's a little bit Hyde.
So many people are fussing that this movie turns the prostitute into a bar maid. Folks, in that part of London at that time, bar maids WERE prostitutes.
I find any moster more scary with no facial hair or deformities added. This Mr Hyde could well exist in real life. In fact, he DOES exist in real life. Once in a while we manage to prove it and put him in prison.
