Storyline

In Victorian London, Dr. Henry Jekyll attempts to create an elixir of life using female hormones stolen from fresh corpses. He reasons that these hormones will wipe out all common diseases and extend his life since women live much longer than men. However, once Dr. Jekyll drinks the serum himself, he transforms into a gorgeous but evil woman. He soon needs female hormones for his serum to maintain, so a number of London women meet bloody deaths. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

This is the third of three Hammer adaptations of Robert Louis Stevenson's novella "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde". The other two are The Ugly Duckling (1959) and The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll (1960). See more »

Goofs

The first transformation scene uses the very clever (1971 technology) of having Jekyll "reflected" in a fake mirror which is actually a window to a matching set containing Sister Hyde. Unfortunately, the two actors rise out of their chairs at slightly different speeds. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Jekyll: I walked the streets, brooding on the bitter irony that all I wanted to do for humanity, for life, would be cheated by death... unless I could cheat death.

A well acted,and well made film from the undisputed masters of horror HAMMER. A very satisfying mix of Dr Jekyll and Jack the ripper,not to mention Burke and Hare. Full marks to Roy Ward aker on yet another MASTERPIECE.
