Silent Film Jekyll & Hyde with Dorothy Papadakos
Sunday, October 29, 4:00pm
Stambaugh Auditorium, 1000 Fifth Ave., Youngstown, 330-259-0555
Budding from the story written by Robert Louis Stevenson, this 1920 film follows the actions of Dr. Henry Jekyll. His enthusiasm for science and his idealist, philanthropic behavior made Dr. Jekyll an admired man. After being criticized for his reluctance to experience the sensual side of life, he thought “Wouldn’t it be marvelous if the two natures in man could be separated.” He developed a potion that would do just that, creating the hideously evil creature whom he names Edward Hyde. Jekyll begins to live his double life, but it is not long before the personality of Hyde begins to dominate. Dorothy Papadakos is a member of the seven-time Grammy Award-winning Paul Winter Consort. She came to international attention as the first woman to be Cathedral Organist of the world’s largest gothic cathedral, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, from 1990 to 2003. She is celebrated for her daring and imaginative improvisations as well as her scores for theatre, film, television and ballet.
