DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE / Are You A Jekyll Or A Hyde? - 1941
In today's classic tale, Dr. Jekyll allows his dark side to run wild when he drinks a potion that turns him into the evil... Mr. Hyde.

Here's Dr. Jekyll working in his lab, he's experimenting on animals with two serums, one makes them hostile, one makes them gentle...
The doc decides to experiment on himself to see if the serums work on humans beans!
After downing a beaker of his 'bad side' serum, the doctor has hallucinations where he's whipping two white stallions to go faster. Then, they turn into the two women in his life! Something ain't right here. Man, Ingrid and Lana were so beautiful!
Mr. Hyde gets a good look at himself in the mirror!
He combs his hair and heads out to the pub. It doesn't take long before he creates a pile of trouble, including hurting people and starting a big fight!
Caught in conundrum, Mr. Hyde confides in his friend the secret he's been keeping...
He is really Dr. Jekyll in disguise!
But, there's a problem... Jekyll now turns back into Hyde without the use of the serum! He goes to see his girl, Beatrix, and scares the Hell out of her, then, kills her butler with his cane before he splits the scene!
Back at the ranch, the police show up. Apparently, Dr. Jekyll was attacked by Mr. Hyde and the cops are ready to leave when...
Jekyll's friend arrives (the one he showed the transformation) and begs him to tell the police the truth. While denying it, he changes back into Hyde and goes berserk!
