    I disagree with the com commenters below. I thought Spencer Tracy gave one of the most nuanced Hyde performances there has ever been. This film is indeed a remake of the 1931 version, but the main area where it diverges is in the portrayal of Hyde. The 1931 film establishes the brutish, animalistic Hyde that we see in most protrayals. The 1941 version makes Hyde a subtle, manipulative character, less outwardly monstrous, but nonetheless abusive and fear-inducing.

    The script was weaker in this one than in 1931, and Ingrid Bergman's accent was atrocious, but it really wasn't a bad film.

    really feels like a hammed up remake of the 1931 version, which is sad because the cast made it seem like it was gonna be great but it never gets there. 7 years 8 months ago

    I agree, pretty big letdown. Also, whoever thought Spacer Tracy would be a good Jekyll/Hyde was...well wrong. He's laughable sadly. 6 years 9 months ago
