    Description

    Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Paramount, 1931). Very Fine-. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    So rare we have sold just one other example of this scarce lobby card, Heritage presents this incredible card for the only second time. Written by Robert Louis Stevenson as an allegory on the evils of drinking, his novel's Mr. Hyde was the hidden and darker nature of Dr. Jekyll's personality. To his everlasting regret, an elixir the good doctor created in his lab unleashed his nefarious alter ego, the darker and more evil side taking more control over him each time he imbibed. Stevenson's 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 version 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, the original set of lobbies have 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, and has received professional touchup to mild creases, a few pinholes, small border tears, and a couple of minor chips in the lower border. The vast majority of these issues did not affect the image in any way, making this highly desirable card a fantastic display piece after receiving these corrections.
