This radio show is by the production team of George Edwards and Inc. If he sounds familiar you might have heard the gorgeous reproduction of The Adventures of Marco Polo that I own and also highly recommend. Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a wonderful show that REALLY takes a harder edged look into the background and psychological background of Henry Jekyll from boy to man. They even threw in a few episodes that have incidents that weren't even in the book. I'm not sure why, but I would hazard a guess for multiple show format and possibly censorship. At any rate buy the CDs or get the download because you will love The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

A True Classic.......

This story ranks at the top of great Literature and continues to fascinate. It has been filmed many times, both as a Silent feature with John Barrymore in the 1920's, later as a "talkie" with Fredric March, Miriam Hopkins and Rose Hobart in the 1930's, and another MGM talking feature in the 1940's with Spencer Tracy, Ingrid Bergman and Lana Turner. This Radio version version ranks with the best of what has been put many times on film, if not better as the mind creates the images. Highly recommended for creativity, sound quality, and overall high production values as put out by Radio Archives on either CD or download. You will be very pleased with either medium.
