Source of the Jekyll & Hyde trope, this 1886 book by Robert Louis Stevenso. A play by Jeffrey Hatcher that has Hyde played by multiple actors and inverts the usual good-evil portrayal near the end, giving Hyde a measure of sympathy and making Jekyll cold and ruthless. This version took out Jekyll having a fiancee, leaving Hyde with Elizabeth, a prostitute who loved him unconditionally. A play by Noah Smith that had Jekyll's maid and butler act as a Greek Chorus, Jekyll battling with his hypocrisy as Hyde racked up a body count, Hyde planning to inject Utterson with the same chemical used to make him, and giving Enfield, Utterson, and Lanyon major roles.

Spencer Tracy plays Dr. Hyde in 1941. The tincture that has so far allowed Jekyll to contain Hyde is needing to be doubled and tripled to give Jekyll some modicum of control over his deviant nature. Unfortunately indifference becomes more personal, more brutal in nature, as Hyde becomes more and more a caged animal who does not want to have to embrace the pretenses of Jekyll’s respectable position.
