    How do the film makers help us to understand that this is Mr. Hyde? 


  17. 00:42:33 

    So where does the young servant girl go after everyone else goes to bed at night? 


  18. 00:46:36 

    So the dark side starts to show even when he is NOT taking the serum! I think it is interesting here because this is how real life works! When we give in to our darker and more base desires and choices, it gets ever easier to make the choices that lead to ruin and destruction!

  21. 00:55:32 

    How does this scene correspond with the book version? 

    • It is an accurate description of the same scene in the book version. 

    • It is not very similar because Hyde does not purposefully drop the girl to the ground. 

    • It is similar because the book discussed how the horses trampled over the girl. 

    • All of the above are true. 


  22. 00:56:41

    • There own greed. 

    • The girl's welfare. 

    • The werewolf is about to attack now... he will explode with a roar out of the crowd!

    • None of the above. 


  23. 00:58:18 

    Anyone know what kind of birds these are? I think these are love birds but there is some imagery that one is supposed to consider with birds. For one, the birds might represent the boundary between life and death. For this scene, this would be appropriate.  


  24. 01:02:24
