Very much in agreement. They could make an Invisible Man movie tomorrow and we'd mostly take it for granted that the special effects had been created via PC magic. We wouldn't really give the creation of those modern effects any thought whatsoever.

But these older films? I just love the idea that, one day, the director went up to the special effects guys and said, "This movie needs a scene where an invisible man rides a bicycle" and then they had to come up with practical ways to make it a reality. I admire the inventiveness, the combination of ways in which they achieved those scenes.

Glad Claude Raines is getting lots of love

This and Black Lagoon are my fave Universal Horror movies.
Frankenstein is my favorite followed by The Wolfman then Black Lagoon. Personally I don't rate Dracula too highly and neither do many critics but everyone remembers and praises its legacy.

Yeah practical effects are like watching a magic trick. When he unwraps the bandages revealing his invisibility I still held the wonderment the audiences must have had back in the day.

It's hard to believe this was made in the 1930's because it has the polish of something from the 40's when the filmmakers started to iron out some of the wrinkles.

One of my favorite James Whale films. Claude Rains' voice in this movie is what really sells the character and makes him terrifying.
