Fredric March

Hello there all you gorgeous Halloween-ready people! If we had to guess, we’d say this is about the time in your pre-Halloween prep calendar that you’re trolling every rep house in L.A. to find the best possible horror features and double bills. Will it be “Suspiria” at Cinelounge? What about “Hocus Pocus” at the Rooftop Cinema Club? Or maybe you’re looking for something a bit more, oh, esoteric. In which case, you should be heading over the New Beverly Theater just about now. If you missed today’s “The Horror of Dracula/The Curse of Frankenstein” double bill, don’t fret: This Thursday’s schedule promises even more excellent horror fare. Rouben Mamoulian’s classic 1931 “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”–the film that used filters for the famous transformation scene to amazing effect– will be shown side-by-side with its Blaxploitation-era cousin, “Dr. Black, Mr. Hyde.” In addition to “Jekyll” being the greatest filmed interpretation of the Robert Louis Stevenson novella, it also features a young Fredric March at his very hottest. Let’s just say you won’t want to miss it.
