A good work
4 September 2008 | by delia-danySee all my reviews

My name is Daniela Della Vecchia and I'm a University student in Naples.I'm graduating in English Language and Literature and my thesis is about the comparison between Stevenson's book "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" and its filmography. Searching on Internet websites, I noticed there is a movie by Otis Turner titled "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde"which was produced by Polyscope Film Company in 1908.This motion picture company closed for bankrupt and it was lately bought out by Mr Louis Burt Myer, a co-founder of the Metro Glodwyn Mayer..So, I would like to know if the movie is still available or if you can tell me where I can find more informations about it. Thank you! P.S. please,give me news as soon as possible. Daniela.
