A Follies tribute to the great director and artist, James Whale (22 July 1889 – 29 May 1957).
“The mix of beauty, perversity, wit and fear in Whale’s monster pictures is the goal that every horror director worth his salt has aspired to since.” – Lloyd Rose, Washington Post Staff Writer
I love that photo of the cluttered set for “Invisible Man.” I can almost hear Claude Rains saying, “How am I supposed to act in bandages when I can’t move without knocking something over!?”
Seems such a pity that this talented director only made a few films after 1940.
Nice. I really loved the film ‘Gods and Monsters’ starring Ian Mckellen as he played James Whale. Both men, so talented!
