    Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, 1931). Insert (14" X 36").
    Fredric March gives an Academy Award-winning performance in his incredible dual performance for this horror film classic. Directed by Rouben Mamoulian, this film also features Miriam Hopkins, in her sexiest pre-Code role, as the prostitute Hyde lusts after. Rose Hobart plays Dr. Jekyll's much more refined love interest. The transformation 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 it in 1941, the movie finally resurfaced decades later, first in the 1960s in a heavily edited and censored version, and then in a restored version, which returned this incredible film to its true glory. The classic Art Deco graphics on this beautiful insert are extraordinary to behold and were only featured on this size. Original release posters for this classic horror film rarely surface. There has been some touch-up to the left to restore small tears and chips on the border and to the right side in the blue background to cover several pinholes. In addition, there has been a slight bit of color enhancement. Rolled, Fine.
