This is a clip from the 1931 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This clip is largely focalized through Dr. Jekylls eyes as we see what Jekyll sees such as his hands when he is playing the piano. The movie also is sometimes shown with a circular lense which would be a depiction of how Jekyll would see and serves to remind the watcher that they are seeing only what Jekyll sees. The entire film is focalized through Jekyll (or Hyde respectively) and the watcher never knows anything that Jekyll or Hyde does not know.
