Dr. Henry Jekyll is a dull, bookish scientist who spends more time with his lab animals testing theories of alternate personalities than with his beautiful, young wife.

After experimenting on himself, the bearded, tweedy Jekyll transforms himself into the young, dynamic, and self-confidant Edward Hyde. In his new character he befriends Allen, who has no idea that this clean-cut, handsome playboy prone to outbursts of violence is really Jekyll.

A good Hammer Film. The plot is keeping with in the Jekyll-Hyde story. Christopher Lee is in it, and so is sexy Dawn Adams. The snake dancer in the night club is one of the best I have ever watched! I was watching a documentary on the history of Hammer Films, and one of the producers said this film was not well recieved, for a B- Horror Movie I strongley dissagree.
