Notes & Trivia Edit

  • Not to be confused with the 1991 comedy Dr. Jekyll and Mrs. Hyde.
  • The tagline for this film is, "The sexual transformation of a man into a woman will actually take place before your very eyes!".
  • Filmed at Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England.
  • Was released theatrically as a double-bill with Hands of the Ripper. Both films relate to the subject of Jack the Ripper.
  • The BBFC requested cuts to remove the inter-cutting of a murder and a rabbit gutting, and to edit a bedroom murder and the stabbing of Professor Robertson. The bedroom murder was shortened though Hammer re-edited the stabbing of the doctor to comprise flash shots of earlier killings. Despite initial BBFC objections the film was then passed, and all later releases feature this same edited print. [1]
  • Famous "Bond Girl" Caroline Munro was originally offered the role of Sister Hyde, but turned it down because the part required some nudity.
  • Actor Ralph Bates, who plays Henry Jekyll and actress Virginia Wetherell, who plays Betsy marry one another in 1973. Bates was formerly married to Fraud Squad actress Joanna Van Gyseghem.
