Description

    The Invisible Man (Realart, R-1951). Insert (14" X 36"). James Whale, director of "Frankenstein," takes on H.G. Welles' tale of a scientist who discovers invisibility with disastrous results. Claude Rains portrays scientist Jack Griffin, a man who becomes insane from the side effects of the invisibility drug "monocane," and goes on a homicidal rampage, leaving hundreds of victims in his wake. Mortally wounded by police bullets at the end of the film, Griffin dies and slowly begins to reanimate. The incredible special effects by John P. Fulton and John Mescall show each layer of bone, nerves, and skin, coming together to give the viewers their first glimpse of the Invisible Man's face. Rains' verbal performance was so commanding that he became an overnight movie star, after working twenty years on the stage. The borders have been airbrushed and there has been light color touch to the fold lines. Very Fine- on Paper.
