This macabre classic is an adaptation of the novel "The Invisible Man" by H.G. Wells, and a reasonably faithful one. It is the story of a scientist who has discovered a formula to turn himself invisible, and now he wants to find a way to turn back again.
It stars Claude Rains as Jack Griffin (well, the voice of Jack Griffin anyway) in his first American screen role. It was directed by the great James Whale, of "Frankenstein" fame.
The Invisible Man is an enjoyable movie which is at times exciting and at times funny - and the special effects, which are not over-used, are surprisingly effective.
