Personal Quote:

[interviewed in 1966]: The screen is the most powerful, exciting and contemporary medium. One of these days, we will learn to do it full justice. See more »

Trivia:

Producers were so terrified that the opening sequence to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931) would turn out badly - Mamoulian shot it all from the perspective of the protagonist - that the re-release of the film omitted the first few minutes of the film. It wasn't until the 1970s that this was added on again and Mamoulian's brilliance returned to one of his greatest films. See more »
