    Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, 1931). Very Fine+. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Written by Robert Louis Stevenson as an allegory on the evils of drinking and the darker side of man that came with it, the novel Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde became a sensation when published in 1886 and later inspired 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. Fredric March gives an Academy Award-winning performance in his incredible dual roles for this classic horror film. The transformation special effects (from Jekyll to Hyde) were major feats for the day and still astound modern audiences. Long thought a "lost" film, with MGM buying up the rights to remake the story in 1941, the movie finally resurfaced decades later much to the delight of horror aficionados. It's been fifteen years since Heritage has offered this lobby card, and is only one of three cards in the set to picture March as Hyde. There are few flaws to detract from the card's vibrant presentation, such as light edge wear, some soft handling creases, and a pinhole at the very top. Also apparent are a few faint surface scuffs and a minute tear in the right border. None of this wear affects the fantastic image of Fredric March as the transformed Mr. Hyde. Very Fine+.
