This Movie Is About.
The Invisible Man is a 1933 American science fiction horror film directed by James Whale. Based on H. G. Wells' 1897 The Invisible Man and produced by Universal Pictures, the film stars Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart and William Harrigan. The film involves a man named Dr. Jack Griffin who is covered in bandages with eyes obscured by dark glasses, taking lodging in the village of Iping. Never leaving his quarters, the stranger demands that the staff leave him completely alone until he is discovered by landlady that he is Invisible. Griffin returns to the laboratory of his mentor, Dr. Cranley (Henry Travers), where he reveals his secret to Dr. Kemp (William Harrigan) and former fiancee Flora Cranley (Gloria Stuart) who soon learn that Griffin's discovery drives him insane, leading him to prove his superiority over other humanity at first performing harmless pranks and eventually turning to turns to murder.The Invisible Man was in development for Universal as early as 1931 when Richard L. Schayer and Robert Florey suggested that Wells' novel would be make a good follow-up to the studio's horror film hit Dracula. Universal opted to make Frankenstein in 1931 instead, leading to several screenplay adaptions written by and several potential directors including Florey, E.A. Dupont, Cyril Gardner and screenwriters John L. Balderston, Preston Sturges and Garrett Fort all signing on to develop the film with the intention of having it as a film for Boris Karloff. Following Whale's work on The Old Dark House and The Kiss Before the Mirror, Whale signed on and his screenwriting colleague R.C. Sherriff develop a script in London. Production began in June 1933 and ended in August 1933 with two months of special effects work to be developed following August ending of filming.On the film's release in 1933, it was great financial success for Universal and received strong reviews from several trade publications, including the New York Times which placed it among their Best in Film for the year 1933. The film went on to have several sequels that were relatively unrelated to the original film in the 1940s and a remake in 2020. The film continued to receive praise on revaluations from critics such as Carlos Clarens, Jack Sullivan and Kim Newman as well as being listed as favourite genre films by filmmakers John Carpenter, Joe Dante and Ray Harryhausen. In 2008, The Invisible Man was selected for the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
