The Invisible Man

A super version of HG Wells' fantasy, with Claude Rains playing the scientist who experiments with a drug which, while it makes him invisible, also turns him into a megalomaniac murderer! Boris Karloff was the studio's original choice for the lead, but director James Whale wanted someone with a more 'intellectual' voice. Rather than todays blue and green screens, to achieve 'invisibility' Whale filmed Rains, covered head to toe in black velvet against a black velvet background.
