This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Jekyll had already created the formula and regularly became Hyde years before the events of the novella; revealed through a series of documents. Shows Jekyll's first time making the formula and becoming Hyde; linear narrative from start to finish.
   Hyde turns into Jekyll in front of Dr. Lanyon, this causes Lanyon to die of shock. Lanyon survives.
   Mureil and Ivy do not exist; Jekyll has no love interests. Jekyll has a fiancée, Muriel Carew. He helps a bar singer, Ivy Pearson, and she becomes attracted to him.
   Utterson and Poole force their way into Jekyll's cabinet where Hyde has locked himself inside. Lanyon and a few police officers break into Jekyll's lab.
   Hyde's pleasures are vague and never described in detail; only told briefly during important plot points. Hyde's evil deeds are shown more explicitly, he seems most focused terrorizing and abusing Ivy Pearson.
