Stan Laurel Turns Into A Monster In "Dr. Pyckle And Mr. Pryde" (1925) (video)

Before teaming up with Oliver Hardy...

...Stan Laurel did a solo series of silent comedies.

"Dr. Pyckle and Mr. Pryde" spoofs the Jekyll and Hyde story...
...particularly the 1920 John Barrymore version.

Fortunately, this "Hyde" is more interested in mischief than murder.

Our Gang's "Pete the Pup" guest stars.

The original ending seems to be lost, as the existing one is rather abrupt. 

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
