Works Very Well
This film version of the H.G. Wells science fiction classic works very well. It has a number of strengths, but it benefits most of all from James Whale’s direction, creativity, and technical excellence. Both the flashier aspects of the movie (such as the “invisibility” effects) and also most of the basic elements are done with skill.
The story is for the most part based on the one main idea of “The Invisible Man” who combines his scientific genius with a generous supply of madness. The story is interesting enough in itself, and of course it provides all kinds of opportunities for visual tricks. Whale hits just the right balance in making good use of these opportunities without over-indulging himself.
The visual effects themselves are of excellent quality, and they are far better than all but the very best of the present-day computer imagery. While it is usually rather easy to spot which parts of a movie are computer-generated, Whale’s effects are all but seamless, with the exception of a handful of brief moments. They are often quite impressive, without resorting to tired devices, such as explosions and the like, in order to impress those with shorter attention spans.
Claude Rains does quite well for having such limitations on what he could do. The rest of the cast is solid, if mostly unspectacular, letting the story do the work. Una O’Connor somewhat overdoes it with the screaming this time, but otherwise the characters are believable. The acting may seem slightly quaint to those who are accustomed to the pretentious styles of the present generation of performers, but it’s certainly better than the grating, self-important performances in some of the recent movies of the same genre.
While the story does not have the thematic depth or the suggestive imagery of horror classics like “Frankenstein” or “Dracula”, this adaptation gets everything it can out of the material, telling the story in an entertaining fashion and with technical skill.
The Invisible Man
I was greatly disappointed to have missed finally seeing The Invisible Man when I made my way through classic horror titles this October. Being stuck inside with an ice storm raging in the middle of December, finally able to watch all the movies I hadn’t yet worked through on my DVR, I was instantly convinced that The Invisible Man is more of a winter than an autumnal movie. The Invisible Man takes place during a snow storm as a scientist who has discovered the secret to invisibility by himself becoming invisible. Starring Claude Rains and directed by James Whale in 1933, The Invisible Man remains a classic over 80 years after its release.
Dr. Jack Griffin (Claude Rains) has finally been given the freedom to conduct his own experiments without oversight. When he disappears from his laboratory without notice, his boss’s daughter and love interest become concerned. Griffin has taken a room at a nearby Inn during a snowstorm. Griffin is hoping time will reverse the effects of his most recent experiment rendering him invisible. The longer the waits, the more mad he becomes quickly realizing that the same drug that resulted in his invisibility is also changing his brain chemistry. As he becomes more aggressive and increasingly dangerous, it becomes clear that the only way to save those around him may be to end his own life.
Claude Rains is wonderful. I have never thought of this movie without synonymously thinking of Claude Rains. It is mind boggling, to me, to think of Boris Karloff, who was originally cast, in the role. The special effects for this film were incredible considering The Invisible Man was released in 1933. Enhanced with witty dialogue, a strong performance by Rains, and captivating effects, it is no wonder the Invisible Man is considered the classic that it is.
