James Whale: The Invisible Man (1933)

Talking Movies With Ty and Theresa

Welcome back, listeners! For the second installment in our Halloween series, we're looking at another James Whale: The Invisible Man (1933). Claude Rains plays Dr. Jack Griffin, a scientist whose research has resulted in him becoming invisible. Unfortunately, he doesn't know how to turn himself back. Additionally, the experiment has had the unfortunate side effect of turning him completely insane. This drives him to ever-escalating displays of his power, starting with childish pranks but soon moving to murder and acts of destruction, while both the police and his former colleagues try to figure out how to apprehend a man they can't see. The Invisible Man comes around halfway through the initial Universal Horror cycle, and is Whale's third entry in the genre. By this point, he had moved beyond the somber, tragic tone of Frankenstein, instead mashing several different registers together at once. The Invisible Man, perhaps taking its cue from the madness of its lead character, is inspired lunacy, constantly jumping back and forth between the macabre and the absurd. It's horror laced with dark comedy, a singular work within the genre. It is also the first significant film role for Claude Rains (even though we barely see him!), who soon becomes one of the greatest actors in all of Hollywood.

James Whale: Frankenstein 1931

Talking Movies With Ty and Theresa

Happy Halloween, everybody! In honor of this spookiest of months, we're doing a series on classic Universal monster movies. And to kick things off, we're discussing the James Whale adaptation of Frankenstein (1931). Earlier in 1931, Universal had released the original Dracula to massive box office success. They decided to capitalize on that success by commissioning more films in the same vein. Frankenstein released to even large acclaim, and cemented horror as one of the most popular genres in the new era of talkies. It led to years of Universal monster movies, which, as a full cycle, was extremely important in defining the iconography and imagery we now associate with Halloween. It also launched the filmmaking career of James Whale, who was one of the most successful directors in Hollywood throughout the 1930s. This podcast is intended to be educational any audio clips are utilized with gratitude under the fair use copyright law. Clips 1 and 2: Frankenstein. Universal Studios, 1931 Clip 3: Young Frankenstein. Twentieth Century Fox, 1974

The Life and Career of Director, James Whale

Slashers

Happy Pride Month, Week 4!!! This month has been an absolute blast; we’ve explored everything from a questionable Al Pacino, to Wendy Carlos’s brilliance, to the creator of Scream and Dawson’s Creek.  For our final week of Pride Month, we are celebrating the life and creations of one James Whale. James Whale is the director of some of your favorite Universal Monster favorites, such as The Invisible Man, Frankenstein, and Bride of Frankenstein. Whale, himself, lived a fascinating life--he was a prisoner of war in World War 1, theatre director, and has been a pillar of the horror community and the pop culture surrounding our favorite pre-assembled Mary Shelley zombie. See what I did there??? We are so excited to share this episode with you; along with some personal tidbits involving vas deferens that, I hope, will pull you in to listen as you read this blurb that no one ever reads, anyway. Don’t forget to let us know your thoughts when you’re finished. Love us? Hate us? Let us know in a review! We’ve got a lot of good shit coming next month; sad to see this month is almost over, but happy to look forward to our topics to come. This week's "Hidden Track" is Beach Creeper with their song, The Phantom of the Boardwalk. Check out their other work here: https://beachcreeper.bandcamp.com/track/phantom-of-the-boardwalk ; https://www.facebook.com/beachcreeper/ If  you ever have feedback or recommendations on future episodes,   please   let us know at slasherspod@gmail.com.
