The Two Faces Of Dr. Jekyll (1960)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

The Two Faces Of Dr. Jekyll (1960) Dr. Henry Jekyll is a dull, bookish scientist who spends more time with his lab animals testing theories of alternate personalities than with his beautiful, young wife. Kitty Jekyll has given up trying to find any passion in her distant, preoccupied husband and is involved in an affair with one of Jekyll's old 'friends,' Paul Allen, a weak slacker and wastrel who relies on Jekyll to pay his numerous gambling debts. After experimenting on himself, the bearded, tweedy Jekyll transforms himself into the young, dynamic, and self-confidant Edward Hyde. In his new character he befriends Allen, who has no idea of that this clean-cut, handsome playboy prone to outbursts of violence is really Jekyll. As Hyde, he encourages Allen to introduce him to the dark underbelly of London's night life including opium dens and sex clubs, where he begins an affair with the sensual courtesan Maria, an exotic dancer and snake charmer. When he tries to seduce Allen's mistress, in reality his own wife, he is frustrated to find she prefers her decadent lover to him.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Henry Jekyll: [to Litauer] This moral quibbling is useless. Man as he is comprises two beings: one of whom I call man as he could be. In his perfection this inner man is beyond good and evil. Dr. Ernst Littauer: And the other man? Dr. Henry Jekyll: He too is beyond good and evil - man as he would be... free of all the restictions society imposes on us... subject only to his own will.
  • Dr. Henry Jekyll: [to Litauer] Resigning my appointment freed me from idiots who are no more scientists than I am a priest!
  • Dr. Henry Jekyll: London and I are virgins to each other.
  • Dr. Henry Jekyll: [Referring to deaf and dumb schoolchildren who are fighting at recess] In each one of these dumb human animals there is a personality which shows itself only in play. Dr. Ernst Littauer: Dumb human animals? Henry, these are not pretty guinea pigs; they are children who cannot speak. Dr. Henry Jekyll: But I am convinced that, in this case, the not speaking is a refusal of one part of the mind to allow the other part to express itself freely. Dr. Ernst Littauer: You suggest they play out what they cannot speak out? Dr. Henry Jekyll: Precisely! Dr. Ernst Littauer: You are the same Hnry Jekyll, forever seeking keys to the locked doors of the mind.
  • Dr. Henry Jekyll: [Thunderstruck by the sensual beauty of the scantily clad exotic dancer] A tigress! Paul Allen: [Detached] Tigers needn't lick their lips over her unless they're very rich. Dr. Henry Jekyll: Is she so exclusive? Paul Allen: Only princes, pashes, millionaires, or distinguished actor/managers need apply. [Aware of Hyde's fascination with the dancer as she continues her routine which climaxes with her putting the snake's head in her mouth] Paul Allen: Forget it, John boy. She's not in the prep school class. Believe me, I've tried.
