Final Paper Proposal

The Invisible Man (1933) directed by James Whale, Universal Studios.

The purpose of this paper is to examine the horror genre and how the “character and social setting” are determined to fit the horror genre (571), including how the problem and resolution relate to social order within the film and how the character as invisible dictator foreshadowed the eventual rise of Hitler. (I need to do more research on this to see whether I will find the way to tie the ideas together).
The ideological contradictions/conflicts Dr. Jack Griffin (Claude Rains as The Invisible Man) is experiencing as he transforms (Ideology, Genre, Auteur”) James Whale the director incorporates the same style, setting, isolation of main character in all of his “horror” films, including “The Old Dark House”, “Frankenstein”, “Bride of Frankenstein”, and “The Invisible Man”. Additionally, Whale typically cast the same actors (character actors) in supporting roles (auteur). The use of narrative since the strong performance by Claude Rains exists mostly in the use of his voice since he is “invisible”.

    Some people may suggest taking a bigger unit but it
    is always safer to buy a mini dehumidifier for the premises.
    As many buyers have already stated, the customer care for Haier if the product dies while still under warranty is lacking.
