One of the best horror movies ever (by jacobjohntaylor1)
This is a very scary movie. Doctor Jekyll discovers that man has to souls. He creates a formula that bring out his evil side. Evil side tries to take him over. If you do not get scared of this movie. Then no movie will scary you. This is a true horror classic. The story line is great. The acting is great. The special effects is great. This movie is a must see. It is very intense. Paul M.a.s.s.i.e is great as Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. David K.o.s.s.o.f.f is great as Doctor Ernst L.i.t.a.u.e.r . Christopher Lee is great as Paul Allen. Christopher Lee was in a lot of horror movie. He play Dracula <more>
in the Horror of Dracula. He played S.a.r.u.m.a.n in the middle earth movies. This is one of the greatest horror movie of all time. See it.
The Fascinating Sex Life of Dr. Jekyll (by jery-tillotson-1)
Leave it to Hammer Studio to bring us a new and intensely sensual take on that hoary old Dr. Jekyll tale--where a dull scientist/doctor transforms from his dull, ordinary self into a rip-roaring monster. Since the beginning of silent movies, this Robert Louis Stevenson classic story has been done and done again. John Barrymore tried his hand in an over-the-top scenery chewing movie of the same name to the all-American Spencer Tracey trying his hand and flopping because he refused to have his all-American face hidden beneath special make-up. But with the Hammer version, we have a brilliant <more>
double performance by Canadian actor, Paul Massie who goes from gloomy, dull, Dr. Jekyl to his hidden self--which is intensely erotic. Massie is insanely attractive and sexy as his secret self, speaking in velvety tones and looking like he's ready for some hot fun in the boudoir. Equally handsome and suave and desirable is a young Christopher Lee like you've never seen him before he became the face of evil and darkness as Dracula. Here, Lee exudes sexuality and heat and he is in great physical shape The only weakness is the role Dr. Jekyll's wife Kitty, played in shrill style by Dawn Addams. She exudes no sympathy or warmth as she entertains her lovers right in the same house where she lives with her unsuspecting husband who she treats like dirt. Again, the main attraction for me was watching Paul Massie glide through this film as his real self. Unfortunately, he never continued creating his sexy screen personae and died while still young. And one wishes screenwriters had come up with other roles for the charming and very handsome Christopher Lee than those of the eternal villain. This is a fun movie that succeeds mainly for its terrific performances by Massie and Lee.
Very nice and quite original adaptation of this often ab used material. This is probably the only version where Hyde is actually more handsome, social and sexy - even in a sort of school-boyish way to begin with - than Jekyll, who is a total wet blanket. There is indeed one of the sexiest performances by Christopher Lee in the film. I'm very happy he isn't in the lead role - I suggest he would have been directed to be his usual grim and menacing self again. Instead of that we get a smiling, easy-going Lee, dripping with wicked charm and sexuality. There aren't many available <more>
films to see him still under 40, so if you are a fan of his, I suggest you check this one out. Sure, it tends to be a bit melodramatic, but fortunately everyone around the poor, misunderstood Jekyll is so delightfully evil - his double-crossing wife, and double double-crossing friend - that the dramatic outbursts are nicely suppressed. Also, you get a very intimate close up at the holiest of holies of a scantily dressed snake charmer, and we get the "b"-word loud and clear - rather nice for 1960. Nice sets, nice Victorian frolics, very good looking cast, and generally a more fun version of the book than we usually get. I only have a strange looking pan and scan bootleg version of this film, which obviously was shot in widescreen. Typical vibrant colours of the period, good score and expert direction plus mostly proper British accent from everyone in the cast. I'm very glad I stumbled upon this film, and should I ever see a legitimate widescreen version released, I'd snatch it without a second thought. I'm rich, you see.
A good Hammer Film. The plot is keeping with in the Jekyll-Hyde story. Christopher Lee is in it, and so is sexy Dawn Adams. The snake dancer in the night club is one of the best I have ever watched! I was watching a documentary on the history of Hammer Films, and one of the producers said this film was not well recieved, for a B- Horror Movie I strongley dissagree.
A solid and inspired Hammer adaptation of the classic story (by Woodyanders)
1874, London. Obsessive and reclusive weakling Dr. Jekyll superbly played by Paul Massie creates a formula that causes him to transform into his evil and impulsive id run amok alter ego Mr. Edward Hyde, who stirs up much trouble and eventually tries to take over Jekyll's meek personality altogether. Director Terence Fisher and writer Wolf Mankowitz offer a sound, absorbing and surprisingly elegant psychological take on the often told tale along with a flavorsome evocation of the Victorian era. This film further benefits from splendid acting from a top-notch cast: Massie delivers an <more>
impressively anguished portrayal of a tormented split personality in the demanding lead role, Dawn Adams brings real class and poise as Jekyll's fed-up faithless wife Kitty, the always great Christopher Lee positively oozes smarm as Kitty's shameless ne'er-do-well gambler lover Paul Allen, ravishing brunette beauty Norma Marla burns up the screen as fiery, sultry dancer Maria her introductory snake dance set piece is memorably sexy , and David Kossoff does well as Jekyll's wise, concerned colleague Dr. Ernest Littauer. Better still, this movie rates as pretty bold stuff for the decade it was made in: we've got opium smoking, adultery, implied nudity, mild profanity, and even offscreen rape. Having the wimpy and homely, but humane and pleasant Jekyll turn into the suave and handsome, yet foul and caddish Hyde is a very nice touch, thereby suggesting it's what's on the inside that makes a man either good or bad. Look fast for Oliver Reed as a nightclub bouncer. Both Jack Asher's vibrant color cinematography and the jaunty, dramatic orchestral score by David Heneker and Monty Norman are up to snuff. Well worth a watch.
