Welcome to Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature erected to celebrate TV and Film’s epic history.
Today, we take a spooky trip to the past to revisit ‘Dr Black Mr Hyde‘, an African-American led retelling of the Jekyll and Hyde story powered Dimension Pictures and its star Bernie Casey.
In it, the former football player (who stood tall at 6 feet 4) portrays a wealthy doctor who is working on an experiment which turns him into a Frankenstein-like monster who begins a reign of terror by murdering prostitutes and pimps.
What happens next?
