    Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, R-1935). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    When this edition of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic was filmed in 1931, the Production Code was not really being enforced. This version is remembered today for a strong sexual content, particularly in the character of the prostitute, "Ivy Pearson", played by Miriam Hopkins. This card is from the first re-release in 1935, when the Code was in full swing and they demanded that over eight minutes be removed from the film before they would allow it to be distributed to theatres. (Fortunately the scenes were replaced for the modern DVD release). This is one of the few cards, in either set, to depict Fredric March in his Best Oscar winning role as "Mr. Hyde." One of the big differences between these cards and their predecessors five years earlier is that March is seen in a great insert shot on the left side of the card as Hyde. There are pinholes in the corners and artwork, a light stain in the bottom border, and a scratch in the top center of the image. There are small pieces of paper tape on the reverse and some smudging in the left border. Don't miss this rare chance to get one of the only depictions of one of the top horror figures of all time! Fine.
