Starring Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart, William Harrigan
Claude Rains makes his memorable Hollywood debut as the mysterious Dr. Jack Griffin, who discovers a serum that renders him invisible. Covered by bandages and dark glasses, Griffin arrives in a small English village and attempts to hide his amazing discovery. But the same drug that makes him invisible slowly drives him to commit acts of unspeakable terror. Based on H. G. Wells’s classic novel and directed by master of the macabre James Whale, THE INVISIBLE MAN not only fueled a host of sequels, but also features brilliant special effects that are still imitated today.
