The Invisible Man | 1933
Clip Name: Flora-And-Griffin
Flora, my darling.
Thank God you're home, Jack.
I would have come to you at once, Flora, but for this.
How wonderful it is to see you.
How beautiful you look.
That funny little hat. I always liked it.
You've been crying.
I want to help you. Why did you do this?
For you, Flora.
Yes, for you, my darling. I wanted to do something tremendous,
to achieve what men of science have dreamt of since the world began,
to gain wealth and fame and honour,
to write my name above the greatest scientists of all time.
I was so pitifully poor. I had nothing to offer you, Flora.
I was just a poor, struggling chemist.
I shall come back to you, Flora, very soon now.
The secret of invisibility lies there in my books.
I shall work in Kemp's laboratory till I find the way back.
There is a way back, Flora. And then I shall come to you.
I shall offer my secret to the world, with all its terrible power!
The nations of the world will bid for it - thousands, millions.
The nation that wins my secret can sweep the world with invisible armies!
Jack, I want you to let my father help you. You know how clever he is.
He'll work with you until you find that second secret that'll bring you back to us.
Then we'll have lovely, peaceful days again
out under the trees, after your work in the evening.
Your father? Clever? You think he can help me?
He's got the brain of a tapeworm, a maggot, beside mine.
Don't you see what it means? Power.
Power to rule, to make the world grovel at my feet.
Jack, listen to me. Listen! My father found a note in your room.
He knows something about monocane you don't.
It alters you, changes you, makes you feel differently.
