1933. USA. Dir: James Whale. With Claude Rains. 71 min.
Dr. Griffin is your typical mad scientist until he creates a chemical rendering him entirely – you guessed it – invisible. (Minor side effects may include increased insanity, megalomania, and a desire to use one’s new lack-of-appearance to terrorize the countryside.) Beneath the stunning visual trickery dwells an affecting portrait of a tortured soul.
