Little Seizure

One sip and he's something to see
You'll flip and then probably flee 
He bends in contortions
And ends with distortions
His lips like the great Edward G.

Fredric March transforms into his monstrous, inner self in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (Rouben Mamoulian; 1931), evoking the massive maw of Edward G. Robinson, shown here in another Pre-Code film, Little Caesar (Mervyn LeRoy;1931).
