Behind the Scenes: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (crypt)

This bird’s eye view of the cavernous soundstage used for Paramount’s 1931 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde comes courtesy of the new classic horror centric Facebook page It Crept From the Crypt.

The 1931 version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s often revisited tale of man’s inherent bestial nature is the rare horror film to achieve a measure of critical acclaim. Fredric March won a Best Actor Oscar and the film’s screenplay and cinematography were also nominated for Academy Awards.
