Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1955)

This version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was aired in 1955 as part of the Climax! tv series. It is directed by Allen Reisner and stars Michael Rennie in the title roles, Cedric Hardwicke and Mary Sinclair. It was adapted by Gore Vidal from the R.L. Stevenson story, which can be read online. I've never before heard Dr. Jekyll's name pronounced that way.

Internet Archive hosts the show online:
