Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)


Recommended Posts

always watch this one as it's pretty dam good. March is excellent but the film's end is a little puzzling to me.


after going to the residence to bear his open heart to muriel without revealing the reason for his torment, he leaves and turns into Hyde to return moments later to terrorize his beloved and whack the general with his cane.


earlier he reveals to lanyon his regret and remorse at tampering with the forces of good and evil and releasing Hyde...


but after whacking the general and fleeing with the police in hot pursuit and after making it back to his lab, he quickly turns himself back into Jekyll to avoid detection, then jekyll tries to mislead the police...


but why should he??? he considers himself damned by what he's done so why would he want to throw the police off???


the film also seems to make clear that when jekyll is hyde he is completely aware and conscious of what he is doing as hyde instead of being two separate personalities.
