Sir Christopher Lee's role was written especially for him, and remains one of his personal favorites.
Laurence Harvey was Hammer's first choice for the starring role, and while the star was keen to do it, Harvey's agent thought it would be a bad career move, so the actor ultimately turned it down.
Sir Christopher Lee originally wanted to play the lead role(s).
This is the second of three Hammer adaptations of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde". The first was The Ugly Duckling (1959) and the third one was Dr. Jekyll & Sister Hyde (1971).
Sir Christopher Lee (Paul Allen) played Dr. Charles Marlowe and Edward Blake, the renamed Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, in I, Monster (1971), another adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's novella "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".
This version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde features the opposite in transformation: the sensible Jekyll is bearded and speaks with a low voice while Hyde is clean-shaven and speaks in a normal, friendly-sounding voice.
Oliver Reed (Bouncer) played the title characters in Dr. Heckyl and Mr. Hype (1980), another adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".
This movie takes place in 1874.
Norma Marla appeared in this movie and the comedy spoof The Ugly Duckling (1959).
