Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931)
The remarkable Jekyll to Hyde transition scenes in this film were accomplished by manipulating a series of variously colored filters in front of the camera lens. Fredric March’s Hyde makeup was in various colors, and the way his appearance registered on the film depended on which color filter was being shot through. During the first transformation scene, the accompanying noises on the soundtrack included portions of Bach, a gong being played backwards, and, reportedly, a recording of director Rouben Mamoulian’s own heart. Only in the late 1960’s did Mamoulian reveal how they were done. (via)
