TCM is my default television channel -- and not because most of its fare is in the same color range as my art.
Yesterday I watched Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, starring Frederic March as literature's ultimate split-personality. Students of film will find it interesting visually, utilizing techniques that, for 1931, seemed quite ahead of their time -- point-of-view shots, split screen, slow dissolves and elapsed-time transitions.
March won an Oscar for his performance which, I have to say, jumped the shark in the last reel. Still, worth watching for the cinematic flashes. And the pre-Code coquettishness of the delightful Miriam Hopkins.
