Miriam Hopkins & Fredric March in Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1931, dir. Rouben Mamoulian)
"As the first edge of my penitence wore off, the lower side of me, so long indulged, so recently chained down, began to growl for license. I was once more tempted to trifle with my conscience; and it was as an ordinary secret sinner that I, at last, fell before the assaults of temptation."
-Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde
