Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

1   
In each of us, two natures are at
war -- the good and the evil. All
our lives the fight goes on between
them, and one of them must con-
quer. But in our own hands lies
the power to choose --- what
we want most
to be, we are.

2
   JOHN BARRYMORE
         as
Henry Jekyll, idealist and
philanthropist ------ by
profession, a doctor of
medicine.

3
Dr. Richard Lanyon, as
conservative professionally
as Dr. Jekyll was pro-
gressive.

    Charles Lane.

4
"I tell you, Lanyon, we
haven't begun to discover
what science can do with
the body and the mind of Man!"

5
"Damn it, I don't like it!
You're tampering with the
supernatural!"

6
Poole, a family servant,
  who had inherited
his young master.

7
"It's time for your clinic, sir."

8
"Stick to the positive
sciences, Jekyll."

9
"And you won't forget your
dinner engagement at Sir
George Carew's?"

10
The human repair
shop, maintained by
Dr. Jekyll at his own
expense, for the
treatment of the
poor.

11
Always as far from
misery and suffering
as he could get, was
Sir George Carew.

    Brandon Hurst.

12
"My dear Lady Camden, a
beautiful woman like you is 
Paradise for the eyes - but 
Hell for the soul!"

13
"Dr. Jekyll regrets he cannot
be in time for dinner. He
will join us later."

14
Mr. Edward Enfield.
 Cecil Clovelly.

15
When the wine
was in and the
ladies were out.

16
"This man Jekyll piques me.
No man could be as good
as he looks."

17
"I assure you, Sir George, he
is London's Saint Anthony.
I know because I lost a
wager on him."

18
"Henry Jekyll is the finest
man I know - although we
differ on every scientific
point."

19
"In devoting yourself to
others, Jekyll, aren't you
neglecting the development
of your own life?"

20
"Isn't it by serving others
that one develops oneself,
Sir George?"

21
"Which self? A man has
two - as he has two hands.
Because I use my right
hand, should I never use my
left?"

22
"Your really strong man
fears nothing. It is the weak
one who is afraid of -
experience."

23
"A man cannot destroy the
savage in him by denying
its impulses. The only way
to get rid of a temptation is
to yield to it."

24
"With your youth, you should
live - as I have lived. I
have my memories. What
will you have at my age?"

25
In one of London's
  music halls.

26
"Shut your fice - you're
'iding the stige!"

27
"Lidies and gents - allow me
to interduce the fimous
h'Italian dancer - Miss
Gina. Give 'er your kind
applause."

28
Gina -- who faced her
    world alone.
    Nita Naldi.

29
It was to this place
that Sir George led
Dr. Jekyll later that
night for an illus-
tration of his argu-
ment at dinner.

30
"What's the matter - afraid
of Temptation?"

31
For the first time in his
life, Jekyll had awakened
to a sense of his
baser nature.

32
"There isn't much in life Sir
George has overlooked."

33
"There's one thing he has 
overlooked - man's im-
mortal soul!"

34
"The one decent thing about
him is the way he has
brought up Millicent. He
has protected her as only a
man of the world could."

35
"Wouldn't it be marvelous if
the two natures in man
could be separated - housed
in different bodies!"

36
"Marvelous - but
impossible!"

37
"Science has wrought mira-
cles. Why not - this?"

38
"But that's sacrilege! Man
would be both God and
Devil!"

39
"Think what it would mean!
To yield to every evil im-
pulse - yet leave the soul
untouched!"

40
His imagination afire with this
new idea, and his whole being
mastered by the exploring
passion of the scientist, Jekyll
spent days and nights in his
laboratory.

41
And now the question -- 
  Did the drug have
 power to restore him
 to his normal state?

42
"Poole, there's a friend of
mine named - Hyde. I
want him to have full liberty
and authority about the
house -"

43
"- and I want you to have a
long mirror placed in my 
laboratory."

44
Now for a secret
place where Hyde
could live his
chosen life.

45
In the impenetrable mask
of another identity, 
Hyde set forth upon
a sea of license ---
to do what he, as
Jekyll, could not do.

46
"What is this bauble?"

47
"It is an old Italian ring made
to carry poison. There is a
story about it -"

48
A proposal of marriage.

49
"Then there is someone
else?"

50
To provide against
mishap in the dan-
gerous game he was
playing, Jekyll adopted
a simple plan.

51
"But who is this Hyde, to
whom you are leaving
everything?"

52
"This is a private matter
which I cannot explain."

53
"Have you entirely forgotten
Millicent Carew? She is
hurt at your apparent neg-
lect of her."

54
"Go and see her. She is the
sort of influence a man
needs in his life."

55
 As Hyde plunged deeper into
vice, his trail was soon strewn
     with victims of his
          depravity.

56
"Get out - I'm through with
you!"

57
In a sudden revulsion
against the power he
felt was dragging him
down, Dr. Jekyll gave a
hostage to his soul.

58
For some time, Dr. Jekyll
renounced the dark
indulgences of Hyde
-- until in an hour of
weakness the demon,
long caged burst forth
more malignant than
before.

59
"He thinks he's covered with
red ants!"

60
Into the life
of Millicent,
the shadow of
evil now began
to creep.

61
"I've not seen Dr. Jekyll, nor
heard from him in days. Has
something happened - or 
has he ceased to care?"

62
The next morning, Sir
  George sought to
 discover the cause
 of Dr. Jekyll's mys-
   terious absence.

63
"We have not seen your
master for a week. Is he
out of town?"

64
"He did not tell me he was
going away, sir, but he has
not been here."

65
"There is something curious
about Jekyll's disappear-
ance. Millicent is greatly
worried about him."

66
"Damn your interference!
What business is it of
yours?"

67
"Name your price."

68
"That is Henry Jekyll's signa-
ture - not yours!"

69
"Set your mind at rest about
that. I will go with this man
to the bank and cash the 
check myself."

70
"The only person with a key
to the laboratory is Mr.
Hyde, sir. Dr. Jekyll told
me he was to come and go
as he pleased."

71
"What can Jekyll have to do
with a fiend like that?"

72
After hours of lonely
       waiting.

73
Tortured by remorse
for Hyde's monstrous
cruelties, Jekyll realized at
last that the evil nature to 
which he had voluntarily
yielded, now threatened to
dominate his whole life.

74
"You're a mysterious young
man, Dr. Jekyll."

75
"What can you, with your
presumably clean life, have
to do with a vile thing like
this Hyde?"

76
"What right have you to 
question me - you, who
first tempted me?"

77
"But what has that to do with
Hyde? Unless you can ex-
plain, I shall have to object
to your marriage with my
daughter."

78
"It was you - you with your
cynicism - who made me
ashamed of my goodness,
who made me long for a
knowledge of evil!"

79
"I'll report this to the police
at once. You go for Mr.
Utterson."

80
"It was too dark to be sure,
sir, but I got the impression
it was Mr. Hyde."

81
"Edward Hyde lives at
Number Nine Barnsbury
Road, Soho."

82
"You must break this to
Millicent!"

83
"Ah! Hyde's in trouble, 
is he?"

84
"We'll go back and find out
what Jekyll knows of this
man."

85
"I don't know where my
master went, sir. He was
here early in the evening."

86
"Perhaps my master's re-
turned, sir - he always
locks the door when he
works."

87
"What awful creature could
have done such a thing?
He must suffer for it! Henry,
you must help me find him!"

88
"I will do everything I can."

89
And now, in his hours off
guard, outraged Nature
took her hideous revenge
-- and out of the black abyss
of torment sent upon him
the creeping horror that
was his other self.

90
In despair, Millicent ap-
  pealed to Dr. Lanyon.

91 
"I'm terribly worried about
Dr. Jekyll. I have tried to
reach him again and again,
but he says he is ill and can-
not see me."

92
"He will not even see me -
nor Utterson."

93
"Have they found any
traces of Hyde yet?"

94
"No, he has disappeared
completely."

95
Having exhausted his sup-
ply of the essential drug
which alone could insure
even a temporary hold
upon his better self,
Jekyll dared not leave
his laboratory.

96
"Misfortune has fallen on this
house. Something is wrong
with the master!"

97
"He's done nothing but send
Poole to the chemists all
over town!"

98
"The master is so eager for
this drug you would think it
was a matter of his life -
and there isn't any to be had 
in the whole of London."

99
"Something's got to be done!
I'm going for Miss Millicent
- you get Dr. Lanyon!"

100
"Millicent, if you love me,
go!"

101
"He has taken his own life -
it is his atonement!"

102
"Hyde has killed - 
Dr. Jekyll!"

THE END.
