You’ll never know song lyrics – (1941) Music by Nacio Herb Brown, Lyrics by Arthur Freed, Sung by Ann Sothern in Lady Be Good

You’ll never know if an apple is ripe, ‘til you bite it
You’ll never know if a fire is gonna burn, ‘til you light it
You’ll never know what it means to be blue, ‘til you’ve lost an old friend
You’ll never know how long is your road, ‘til you’ve reached the end.

Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941)

Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941) starring Spencer Tracy, Ingrid Bergman, Lana Turner

If there’s a problem with the 1941 version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of a man split between his dark and light sides, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, it unfortunately comes down to the lead actor, Spencer Tracy. It’s undeniable that Spencer Tracy is a fine actor but not in this film. He portrays Dr. Henry Jekyll as nearly neutral and spineless, and he plays Mr. Hyde not as a wild, unhindered, lover of self, but as a slightly more menacing version of Dr. Jekyll. When he starts a bar fight he doesn’t participate. When he abuses the lovely singer Ivy (Ingrid Bergman) its barely what most people would consider anger.
