Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, 1931). Jumbo Lobby Card (14" X 17").
    He may be dressed for the evening in a tux, but you just couldn't control the beast in Mr. Hyde. In reality, Mr. Hyde was the hidden and darker nature of Dr. Jekyll's personality. It was unleashed by an elixir the good doctor created in his lab and to his ever-lasting regret, the darker and more evil side was taking more control of him each time he imbibed. The story was written by Robert Louis Stevenson and was an allegory on the evils of drinking and the darker side of man that came with it. The novel was a sensation when it was published in 1886 and became the inspiration for a number of film adaptations including one with John Barrymore in 1920 and another with Spencer Tracy in 1941. However, this is the version that became the one all others have been measured against as Fredric March would take home an Oscar as Best Actor for his amazing performance. As most fans of the film know, in the regular set of lobbies there are only three cards that depict March as the evil Mr. Hyde and one of those is almost the back of Hyde's head. The cards from this jumbo set have at least two scenes with Mr. Hyde and we couldn't imagine that there's a card more spectacular than this. As the leering Mr. Hyde, March charges the police who have come to arrest him. The card, with it's portrait depiction of Mr. Hyde in Wally Westmore's incredible makeup, truly captures the depiction of man at his most foul. The card had conservation to two very minor chips in the upper edge and to another two tiny chips in the right edge. The card also had a few minor crimps within the image area, all of which have been beautifully corrected. Very Fine-.
