'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' scary in silence
Thomaston — Friends of the Thomaston Public Library presents its Friday Night Film Series with screenings weekly at 6:30 p.m. in the community room of Thomaston Public Library in the Thomaston Academy Building, 60 Main St./Route 1. October’s theme is Classic Horror Films — all silent and in black and white.
The Oct. 11 film is "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," a movie from 1920 that runs 96 minutes. John Barrymore is riveting in this 1920 version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale. Dr. Jekyll, obsessed with separating good and evil impulses in every person, creates a potion that transforms him into the demonic Mr. Hyde. The initial transformation scene was achieved only through Barrymore’s facial contortions, without the use of make-up, and remains a memorable sequence to this day.
Upcoming in the series are: Oct. 18, “Phantom of the Opera” (1925, USA); and Oct. 25, “Nosferatu” (1922, Germany). Friday Night Films are open to the public and free of charge, but donations are gratefully accepted. Popcorns and drinks will be served. The Thomaston Academy building is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance. For more information, call the library at 354-2453.
