This made-for-television adaptation doesn't waste time with preliminaries. Within 15 minutes of its opening, Dr. Henry Jekyll has already experimented on himself with a concoction that he'd hoped would neutralize his baser instincts but which releases without inhibition his long-repressed animal inclinations.

This production originally began shooting with Jason Robards
in the title role(s), and a makeup that was heavily influenced by John Barrymore
in the 1920 silent version (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
(1920)). Production was halted due to a strike, and when filming was able to resume, Robards was no longer available. Jack Palance
took over the Jekyll/Hyde role, and the makeup concept was radically changed - inspired, more or less, by that of a satyr. See more

Then do contemplate it - in terms of Henry Jekyll.
