Trivia

There have been more than forty versions of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale, but the one that eclipses them all for ingenuity is Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pryde (1925), a two reeler in which Stan Laurel created a brilliant parody of John Barrymore's 1920 performance. See more »

Quotes

Fred Smudge: Take her away.
Fred Smudge: I can't keep the creature... guvnor! I can't just let her go. She might fall under a cab, fall in the river or something. I'm wicked, but I'm tidy. I wouldn't want anyone to think that Freddie Smudge left a mess lying about.

This TV production did not have songs cut from Oliver, The score was to be an original by Oliver's composer Lionel Bart. Uncredited composers were brought in to "doctor" Bart's awful score. Certainly that horrid graveyard number with Jekyll playing a gravestone shaped like a piano has to be the worst moment in the film. On the other hand some of it is so unintentionally funny you end up enjoying it anyway. Kirk Douglas' performance is pretty good, his singing isn't. Still compared to the David Hasselhoff video of the Broadway musical this could be called a masterpiece. Maybe Jekyll and Hyde shouldn't be musicalized, or at least should be given to more talented creators.
