Description

    Invisible Man Lot. "Even the moon's frightened of me! Frightened to death! The whole word's frightened to death!" ranted Claude Rains as he won cinema immortality as Universal's The Invisible Man in 1933. Director James Whale, who cast Rains because of his dynamic voice, didn't tell Rains that he'd never be seen in the film (except in the final shot of his corpse) until the actor had arrived to make the film and his Hollywood debut. Rains' ego bristled, but he came through with a brilliant performance filled with pathos, theatricality and star-making passion. Perfectly complementing Rains in The Invisible Man was Una O'Connor, Irish character actress, as Mrs. Hall, the curious-as-a-cat landlady. "He's homey-cidal!" she wails of the Invisible One, unleashing a caterwauling scream that is itself a classic. As a bonus, the Rains page has on the verso the autograph of actress Cobina Wright, while the O'Connor on the flip side has the signature of actor John Calvert. Each of these boldly signed album pages contains pasted-on pictures of the players. For The Invisible Man fans, these vintage autographs nicely evoke the magic of this beloved classic horror film. With COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
