The Invisible Man

David Osgerby approached me about playing Dr Jack Griffin  to recreate the classic 1933 B movie The Invisible Man. A science fiction horror film based on H. G. Wells’ science fiction novel of the same name, published in 1897, as adapted by R.C. Sheriff, Philip Wylie and Preston Sturges. Produced by Universal Studios, the film was directed by James Whale and stars Claude Rains, in his first American screen appearance, and Gloria Stuart. It spawned a number of sequels, plus many spinoffs using the idea of an “invisible man” that were largely unrelated to Wells’ original story.

Rains portrayed the Invisible Man (Dr. Jack Griffin) mostly only as a disembodied voice. Rains is only shown clearly for a brief time at the end of the film, spending most of his on-screen time covered by bandages.

George was so taken by his role that he is planning some performances as ‘The Invisible Poet’ at the Union Mashup in 2017.
