    Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, 1931). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    He may be donning elegant dinner dress, but the beastly side of Mr. Hyde could not be stifled. 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 everlasting 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 original 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. This card, with its depiction of Mr. Hyde in Wally Westmore's incredible makeup, truly captures the essence of the man at his most foul. This is first time Heritage has presented this remarkably scarce scene card, and it has had the benefit of touchup to two chips in the right border, missing paper in the bottom left corner, top right corner bend, a crease in the left border into the image, and edge wear with small tears. A collecting opportunity not to be missed! Fine-.
