James Whale and the Invisible Man
26 February 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Nice featurette from the first Invisible Man DVD, as well as subsequent DVD releases. It covers the history of the Invisible Man films from Universal buying the rights from H.G. Wells through the 1940s films and even a mention for the Amazon Women on the Moon skit spoofing the film. Oddly, not much time is spent on the original Wells novel. Instead, a lot of time is spent discussing the life and career of director James Whale. Included are clips from "Gods and Monsters," as well as interviews with that film's director and star. So it would be fair to say this is a documentary short about James Whale as much as about the Invisible Man. There is also some focus on the great Claude Rains, whose daughter Jessica appears and shares some pleasant anecdotes. That was probably the highlight for me.

It's a good featurette, as all of the original Universal horror DVD shorts were. It could have used more focus on the film than Whale but I understand why they chose to do that. The Frankenstein one just had too much stuff going on to fit it in. Also, "Gods and Monsters" was new at the time this was made. Ideally, there could have been a short devoted to Whale and one devoted to the film but, in the end, it doesn't matter much. All that matters is that this one is informative and entertaining.
