Storyline

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.

Trivia

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 »

Quotes

Mr. Hyde: If you kill me, you'll be killing Henry Jekyll!
Devlin: You don't understand, do you? Jekyll deserves to die - he's the one who's responsible, not you.

Marvelous! Curtis does it again!
30 December 2000 | by (Dover, NH) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this one split up over two late nights on ABC in the early 1970s. I was mesmerized and excited; I've longed to see the film again and recently got my chance! As soon as I found out it was available on DVD I bought it. Lots to be nostalgic about here: for instance, that wonderful videotape quality of the visuals (even more vivid now that the thing is out on DVD). Jack Palance hams it up as Hyde: a friend who saw the movie with me said he looked like a muppet during the scene at Tessie's music hall! But his Dr. Jekyll is a brilliant character, full of the best kind of noble suffering that a great tragic hero endures. I loved every minute of it. And Robert Cobert's music--all of which was originally used for the great _Dark Shadows_ series--is more haunting than ever. Any fan of _Dark Shadows_ will love this _Jekyll and Hyde_; and any horror fan should enjoy seeing it, too!
