The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man

A FILM BY: James Whale
WRITTEN BY: H.G. Wells (novel), R.C. Sherriff (screenplay)
STARRING: Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart, William Harrigan

"An invisible man can rule the world. Nobody will see him come, nobody will see him go. He can hear every secret. He can rob, and wreck, and kill!" Claude Rains makes a supremely self-effacing Hollywood debut, mostly either covered in bandages or as a disembodied voice in the ether, in this pioneering blend of special effects extravaganza, social comedy, and fascistic horror. Though nominally drawn from H.G. Wells, the eccentric Englishness and the handsome craft are thoroughly the work of James Whale.
