The list author says: "The young Robert Louis Stevenson suffered from repeated nightmares of living a double life, in which he worked as a respectable doctor by day, and roamed the back alleys committing crimes at night. As a result of those nightmares, he wrote "The Strange Case Of Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde." It was originally published in 1886, and became an instant classic. Among the great actors portraying Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde are John Barrymore, Fredric March, Spencer Tracy, Boris Karloff, Jack Palance, Kirk Douglas, Anthony Perkins, and Michael Caine."
