Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a horror silent film directed by John S. Robertson based on Robert Louis Stevenson's story, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, that focuses on the tale of Dr. Jekyll (John Barrymore), a relatively honorable and morally upright doctor, who took up the task to prove that every man has two sides – one noticeably good and the other noticeably evil. After it was brought up amongst his colleagues, the good doctor becomes fixated on proving the notion, even going so far as to try to split the two in order to rid oneself of the evil side. Nothing is that easy as the potion he creates does indeed split his sides as he transforms into the hideously ugly, hunched and brutal Mr. Hyde. With the newfound freedom of no morals, Hyde spends his time in the worst parts of London, living with a dance hall girl, and denying no desire. As Jekyll's own personality weakens, Hyde brings him into the underworld with little remorse for murder, drug use, and the ultimate destruction of man.moreless
