This classic mystery from Robert Louis Stevenson stars internationally acclaimed Soviet actor Innokenti Smoktunovsky as Dr. Henry Jekyll. With the help of an intravenous drug injection, he is transformed into the criminally inclined Edward Hyde (Alexander Feklistov).When a local politician is murdered, the attorney Utterson (Anatoly Adoskin) belatedly discovers to his horror that Jekyll and Hyde are one in the same. This film adaptation follows the Stevenson classic more closely than many previous attempts. Smoktunovsky gained world-wide praise for his lead role in the famous Russian version of Hamlet.
