Trivia:
Laurence Harvey was Hammer's first choice for the starring role, and while the star was keen to do it, Harvey's agent thought it would be a bad career move, so the actor ultimately turned it down.See more »
Quotes:
Dr. Henry Jekyll:[Thunderstruck by the sensual beauty of the scantily clad exotic dancer] A tigress!
Paul Allen:[Detached] Tigers needn't lick their lips over her unless they're very rich.
Dr. Henry Jekyll:Is she so exclusive?
Paul Allen:Only princes, pashes, millionaires, or distinguished actor/managers need apply.
[Aware of Hyde's fascination with the dancer as she continues her routine which climaxes with her putting the snake's head in her mouth]
Paul Allen:Forget it, John boy. She's not in the prep school class. Believe me, I've tried.

Not As Bad As Its Reputation, 12 September 2011
Author: Harold_Robbins from United States

Like many Hammer Films that were pooh-poohed at the time of their release as exploitational, THE TWO FACES OF DR. JEKYLL is much better than its reputation would have you think, and it's surprisingly frank in its depictions of adultery and sexuality. It's well-directed by Terence Fisher, and the sets, costumes, set decorations and cinematography are excellent, making very good use of color (particularly in the Can-Can sequence). Performances are also excellent, particularly Paul Massie in the title roles, though he may seem a bit over-the-top at times. He does an excellent job of differentiating between Jekyll and Hyde, even vocally (though he sounds oddly post-synched in both roles). No, this isn't the foggy, gas-lit London of previous versions of J&H - color more or less ruled that out - but its nevertheless effective in its own way and deserves re-examination.
