* Straightforward film adaptations in 1920 (with John Barrymore), [[Film/DrJekyllAndMrHyde1931 1931]] (with Creator/FredricMarch and Creator/MiriamHopkins) and 1941 (with Creator/SpencerTracy, Creator/IngridBergman and Lana Turner.) Jekyll was cast much younger than he is in the novel, and female love interests are added. They also abandon the character of Utterson and his investigation for a story centered on Jekyll and Hyde. The 1931 film is probably the best-regarded film version. It offers a rare case of a horror film winning an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward, as March won Best Actor for his portrayal of Jekyll and Hyde. The 1941 one was a direct remake of the '31 film.
* ''The Janus Head'', a 1920 silent German film version directed by F.W. Murnau and starring Conrad Veidt. It changed the characters' names to Dr. Warren and Mr. O'Connor to keep the twist. Also has Bela Lugosi as the butler. It is also apparently lost forever due to legal issues, but if the production notes are to be believed, it has the first moving camera in cinema history.

* Russell Crowe plays both parts in the Film/DarkUniverse, the shared universe of the Franchise/UniversalHorror films. This is in spite of the story not having been part of the original film series, as the two contemporary films mentioned above were made by Paramount and MGM respectively.

* AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame: The work is [[MainstreamObscurity well-known by name]], but all that most people have heard about it is [[JekyllAndHyde the twist ending]]. Many do not even know that the dual identity story was originally a twist at all, and most newer adaptations treat it as a foregone conclusion. Some even make Hyde himself some sort of ugly were-monster rather than just a really evil man.

* ''Film/VanHelsing'' had Hyde as the first monster the titular Van Helsing fights. Hyde is an ape-like monster who battles Van Helsing in the BatmanColdOpen. Hyde turns back into Jekyll on his death, unlike the original story. An animated prequel fleshes out the backstory, with Jekyll having the hots for Queen Victoria of England and harvesting essence from young women to make her a temporary youth potion.

* A 1968 made-for-TV movie starring Jack Palance. This version took out Jekyll having a fiancee, leaving Hyde with Gwyn, a prostitute. This version is also notable for its length, at two hours long.

* NoPronunciationGuide: According to the author it should be "''Jee''-kyll", not "''Jeh''-kyll". Not that that's ever stopped anybody from pronouncing it "''Jeh''-kyll" for decades.
