A cheaply sensational affair compared to the more silent Barrymore version. The brutal exaggeration of Hyde’s makeup, physically so much more revolting than Barrymore’s, spiritually so much less so, is a typical Mamoulian touch.

(Dwight Macdonald, New Yorker)

I should like to suggest that it should be made illegal to trot out any further version of this hackneyed story for another twenty years.

(James Agate, Tatler)
