This first sound version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic morality tale stars Fredric March, who received an Academy Award for Best Actor, as the kindly Dr. Jekyll. Fascinated with the notion that within each man there lurks impulses for both Good and Evil, Jekyll develops a drug to release the wickedness within himself--the lecherous, lycanthropic Mr. Hyde.
