It was a bit distracting and unbelievable. I'm not saying she shouldn't be cast in roles just because she's not a beauty, but maybe not in a role where a handsome wealthy man is obsessed with her.
I can only suspend disbelief so much. The Invisible Man is fun though if you're not expecting too much and has some good jump scares. Prime Video has you covered this holiday season with movies for the family.

You are no longer onsite at your organization. Please log in. Her father's other assistant, the cowardly Dr. Kemp, is no help.
He wants her for himself. Little does Flora guess that the wild tales, from newspapers and radio broadcasts, of an invisible homicidal maniac are stories of Dr.
Griffin himself, who has discovered the secret of invisibility and gone mad in the process. Written by J. Claude Rains.
The man. The myth. The legend. You cannot talk about this film, whether in conversation or in any review, without placing this actor on the tip of your tongue.
He is the epitome of the madness that surrounded the power-hungry Invisible Man. In this day of modern cinematic wonder, most full-fledged actors would want their faces to be in front of the camera, showcasing the entire film.
Directors would want this fledgling star to promote their film, get kiddies interested in spending their money, and for financiers to see the profits of their contributions.
Let's face it, if Brad Pitt is in a movie, typically most audience members are actually going to "see" Brad Pitt. Thankfully, we have directors like James Whale and his interpretation of H.
Wells' classic The Invisible Man. Whale took a powerful story, expanded it, breathed life into it, and followed up with quite possibly one of the most sinister villains in movie horror history since Hannibal Lector.
There are several reasons why I just fell in love with this film, outside of the cataclysmic performance of Claude Rains. Ohhhh, Claude Rains.
I loved the way that this movie was filmed. I loved the scope of the Invisible Man's terror. Whale could have kept his antagonist to committing just single murders of friends and family, he could of just kept it confined to just one single town, he could have kept our focus directly on the turmoil of Rains, but instead, he decided amazingly!
When I first began this film I was expecting the classic images of angry villagers with pitchforks storming the house that the Invisible Man lived within, but instead, Whale gave us this sort of random chaos that truly created fear around this character.
Whale is able to give us the true terror of this madman by perhaps expanding his budget and showing us how big the terror of the Invisible Man is.
For example, I never foresaw the horrific train accident, nor the random worker push off the mountain, and when Rains explained to Kemp what the human impact of falling down a ravine would be like, it literally sent shivers down my spine.
Whale created a madman better than some modern horror films could ever accomplish. For a film created in the s, the special effects were spectacular.
Sure, CGI was just a glimmer in Lucas' mother's eyes, but James Whale did a superb job of giving us these rare glimpses into the future of special effects.
The way that he created the Invisible Man surprised me. I did not expect to ever see the creature without his bandages on, but within ten minutes we are shown the full scope of Whale's creativity.
I thought the use of snow, dust, and even the early stages of the overused "green screen" was original for its time. To see Rains smoke as the Invisible Man put a smile on my face.
It was surprising to see such quality from such an older film. Ellison once called Faulkner the South's greatest artist. Likewise, in the Spring Paris Review , Ellison said of Hemingway: "I read him to learn his sentence structure and how to organize a story.
I guess many young writers were doing this, but I also used his description of hunting when I went into the fields the next day.
I had been hunting since I was eleven, but no one had broken down the process of wing-shooting for me, and it was from reading Hemingway that I learned to lead a bird.
Some of Ellison's influences had a more direct impact on his novel as when Ellison divulges this, in his introduction to the 30th anniversary of Invisible Man , that the "character" "in the dual sense of the word" who had announced himself on his page he "associated, ever so distantly, with the narrator of Dostoevsky's Notes From Underground ".
Although, despite the "distantly" remark, it appears that Ellison used that novella more than just on that occasion. The beginning of Invisible Man , for example, seems to be structured very similar to Notes from Underground : "I am a sick man" compared to "I am an invisible man".
Arnold Rampersad , Ellison's biographer, expounds that Melville had a profound influence on Ellison's freedom to describe race so acutely and generously.
Other most likely influences to Ellison, by way of how much he speaks about them, are: Kenneth Burke , Andre Malraux , Mark Twain , to name a few.
The letters he wrote to fellow novelist Richard Wright as he started working on the novel provide evidence for his disillusion with and defection from the Communist Party for perceived revisionism.
In a letter to Wright on August 18, , Ellison poured out his anger toward party leaders for betraying African-American and Marxist class politics during the war years: "If they want to play ball with the bourgeoisie they needn't think they can get away with it Maybe we can't smash the atom, but we can, with a few well-chosen, well-written words, smash all that crummy filth to hell.
The narrator, an unnamed black man, begins by describing his living conditions: an underground room wired with hundreds of electric lights, operated by power stolen from the city's electric grid.
He reflects on the various ways in which he has experienced social invisibility during his life and begins to tell his story, returning to his teenage years.
The narrator lives in a small Southern town and, upon graduating from high school, wins a scholarship to an all-black college.
However, to receive it, he must first take part in a brutal, humiliating battle royal for the entertainment of the town's rich white dignitaries.
One afternoon during his junior year at the college, the narrator chauffeurs Mr. Norton, a visiting rich white trustee , out among the old slave-quarters beyond the campus.
By chance, he stops at the cabin of Jim Trueblood, who has caused a scandal by impregnating both his wife and his daughter in his sleep.
Trueblood's account horrifies Mr. Norton so badly that he asks the narrator to find him a drink. The narrator drives him to a bar filled with prostitutes and patients from a nearby mental hospital.
The mental patients rail against both of them and eventually overwhelm the orderly assigned to keep the patients under control, injuring Mr.
Norton in the process. The narrator hurries Mr. Norton away from the chaotic scene and back to campus. Bledsoe, the college president, excoriates the narrator for showing Mr.
Norton the underside of black life beyond the campus and expels him. However, Bledsoe gives several sealed letters of recommendation to the narrator, to be delivered to friends of the college in order to assist him in finding a job so that he may eventually re-enroll.
The narrator travels to New York and distributes his letters, with no success; the son of one recipient shows him the letter, which reveals Bledsoe's intent to never admit the narrator as a student again.
