Personal Quote:

[on casting Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1932)] I don't want Hyde to be a monster, Hyde is not evil, he is the primitive, the animal in us, whereas Jekyll is a cultured man, representing the intellect. Hyde is the Neanderthal man and [Fredric March's] makeup was designed as such. See more »
