Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at the Alamo Drafthouse (San Francisco) - June 19th
|Nita Naldi and John Barrymore |
on one of the original posters
This 1920 film is a landmark of silent horror cinema and a tour de force for Barrymore who transformed himself from the quiet Dr. Jekyll into the terrifying Mr. Hyde with no make-up. It is a great spectacle to see. You also get to see my favorite future vamp of cinema Nita Naldi in this film. Do not miss this if you can avoid it!
A sample of the Invincible Czars can be heard supporting Nosferatu in this clip.
