One of my all-time favorite monster films:



The film, made prior to the full enforcement of the Hays code, is remembered today for its strong sexual content, embodied mostly in the character of the prostitute, Ivy, played by Miriam Hopkins.

The secret of the astonishing transformation scenes was not revealed until decades later (Mamoulian himself revealed it in a volume of interviews with Hollywood directors published under the title The Celluloid Muse).

A series of rotating filters matching the make-up was used on the lenses, enabling the make-up to be gradually exposed or made invisible, depending upon the scene.

Wally Westmore's make-up for Hyde, simian and hairy with tusks influenced greatly the popular image of Hyde in media and comic books (the American Classics Illustrated edition of Jekyll and Hyde clearly based its design of Hyde on the Fredric March movie, although it is more toned down); in part this reflected the novella's implication of Hyde as embodying repressed evil and hence being semi-evolved or simian in appearance.

This is a great idea!  Each of us should pick a horror movie and start a topic on it, in honor of our annual Halloween festibal.

Jean S. can have Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, I have dibs on King Kong!

Carolyn can do Dracula since she is so into vampires, and Jennie can do Aliens or something like that.
