Jekyll and Hyde...Together Again is a 1982 comedy based on the novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. The film is more like a cross between the original story and some aspects of The Nutty Professor. The movie stars Mark Blankfield, Bess Armstrong, Tim Thomerson, Krista Errickson, and Michael McGuire.

Plot[edit]

Brilliant surgeon Daniel Jekyll (Blankfield) dedicates himself to medical research, hoping to unlock man's animal nature and increase his capacity for self-healing. Jekyll accidentally creates a white powder which, when inhaled through the nose, temporarily turns him into a completely uninhibited sex maniac who calls himself Mister Hyde. Jekyll can't bring himself to throw away the drug or to stop taking it, and Hyde's escapades play havoc with Jekyll's life. At the very end, we see Robert Louis Stevenson literally spinning in his grave.

Release[edit]

The film was given a theatrical release in the United States by Paramount Pictures in October 1982. It grossed $3,792,188 at the box office.[1]

The film was given a belated release on VHS by Paramount Home Video in the 1980s.

The film was sub-licensed to Legend Films by Paramount and released on DVD by in 2008.
