Cast: , ,
Rated :

Watched Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde over the weekend, the 1941 version, with Spencer Tracy & Ingrid Bergman.

It was quite good, interesting point, if one is totally evil does one have a choice? But apart from that I was actually surprised at how much they got away with, of course all innuendo and that, but rape, potential threesomes, and lots of sex got brought up.

Pity they tried to show the transformation of Jekyll into Hyde, and effects are very poor, but then again I suppose it was over 60 yrs ago, and so more impressive back then. Personally I was a little confused at one point as to whether he was getting better or worse.
