(1933) Directed by James Whale. Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart, Una O’Connor. (71 min.)
The special effects in H. G. Wells’s sci-fi classic still thrill, and Rains’s debut, using his voice alone, made him famous. Ingénue Gloria Stuart waited until Titanic for her immortality. “Whale's most elegantly inventive movie ... a film that always feels both more sinister and more prankish than you remember it as: it’s a startling piece of studio-made surrealism” (Terrence Rafferty, New York Times).
