April 16-17: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum

Posted By on Wed, Apr 9, 2014 at 12:55 PM

As universally known as Dracula and as terrifying as Frankenstein, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has been the source of inspiration for a century of adaptations in film, television, theater and comic books. Now the Robert Louis Stevenson Museum presents the 1912 short silent film, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the first known adaptation of the novella and one of the first horror movies in cinema history. Allison Fox will be on hand for a discussion of Stevenson’s influence, which includes a look at the Bugs Bunny take on the classic tale. April 16-17. Robert Louis Stevenson Museum, 1490 Library Lane, St. Helena. 7pm. Free. 707.963.3757.
