The Invisible Man on VHS. Starring Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart. Directed by James Whale. Based on the novel by H.G. Wells. 1933.
From the box:
In The Invisible Man, what you don’t see is what you get. This remarkable 1933 movie marked the screen debut of Claude Rains as a scientist who discovers how to make himself invisible but can’t reverse the process. Slowly he realizes with terror that he’s become a prisoner of his unseen self, an unbearable state that drives him to madness and murder. Although he is invisible, his clothes are not, so we witness the bizarre sight of seemingly empty trousers bounding along, his hat suspended in space, or a floating fork feeding a space with no face. Rains is unforgettable as he grasps his character, which is more than the local constables can do when they try to catch him. This spectral spectacle, based on H.G. Wells’ famous novel, is a motion picture classic–gripping and haunting. –Gene Shalt
