You've driven me near madness
with your peering through the keyholes
and gaping through the curtains.
And now you'll suffer for it!
You're crazy to know who I am,
aren't you?
All right! I'll show you!
There's a souvenir for you.
And one for you.
I'll show you who I am and what I am.
(laughs insanely)
Look. He's all eaten away.
How do you like that, eh?
(Griffin laughs insanely)
(laughs insanely)
- It was 'orrible.
- What's wrong?
- Jaffers, what do you think?
- He's invisible, that's what's the matter.
If he gets the rest of them clothes off,
we'll never catch him in a thousand years.
Come on.
They've asked for it,
the country bumpkins.
This'll give them a bit of a shock.
Something to write home about.
A nice bedtime story for the kids,
too, if they want it.
(laughs insanely)
- Put the handcuffs on.
- How can I handcuff a bloomin' shirt?
- Quick! Get hold of him!
- (cackling)
Are you satisfied now, you fools?
It's easy, really, if you're clever.
A few chemicals mixed together,
that's all,
and flesh and blood and bone
just fade away.
A little of this injected under the skin
of the arm every day for a month.
An invisible man can rule the world.
Nobody will see him come,
nobody will see him go.
He can hear every secret.
He can rob and kill!
Not if he can't get no further
than this room, he won't.
Here, shut that door.
- You'd better come along quietly.
- (cackles)
(Jaffers) Look out! Mind that window!
You think I'd escape
like a common criminal?
You need a lesson.
I think I'll throttle you.
Let go of me!
Let go!
You must be made to understand
what I can do.
Hey, look out!
Hey, whoa!
Hey, hey!
Look out! Get indoors!
Everybody get indoors!
(shouting and screaming)
I'm afraid I need this bicycle. Ha-ha!
He stole me bike!
Here's your blooming bicycle.
You can do what you like with it.
How's that for a hairbrush, George Henry?
Good morning, Grandfather.
How do you do?
We'll do our part.
Mama, give me the diamonds!
On the gospel, it's the truth.
He tried to strangle me, sir.
Where are you speaking from, Jaffers?
Lion's Head inn, eh?
Did you say an invisible man?
Well, look here, you put
more water in it next time!
He won't believe me. You tell him.
Mr Hall speaking.
The constable's telling the truth all right.
Not the slightest clue.
I didn't expect there would be.
That's where the clues are.
He wasn't leaving anything to chance.
Griffin was never the man for secrets.
He came to me with everything.
He kept a lot of stuff locked in here.
I came in one evening
when he wasn't expecting me.
He was by this cupboard.
It was full of instruments.
When he saw me, he slammed the door
and turned the key.
You say he brought
a packing case up here?
The night before he disappeared. I heard
him hammering, packing everything up.
- Here's something, Kemp.
- What is it?
- Bad news?
- It's only a rough note.
A list of chemicals,
and the last on the list is monocane.
Monocane? What is monocane?
- Monocane's a terrible drug.
- I never heard of it.
You wouldn't, Kemp. It's never used now.
I didn't know it was even made.
It's a drug that's made from
a flower that's grown in India.
It draws colour
from everything it touches.
Years ago they tried it for bleaching cloth.
They gave it up because
it destroyed the material.
- That doesn't sound very terrible.
- I know, but it does something else.
It was tried out on some poor animal -
a dog, I believe.
It was injected under the skin,
and it turned the dog dead white,
like a marble statue.
- Is that so?
- Yes, and it also sent it raving mad.
You surely don't think...?
I only pray to God that Griffin hasn't
been meddling with this ghastly stuff.
- He'd never touch a thing with madness.
- He might not know.
I found that experiment
in an old German book just by chance.
The English books only describe
the bleaching power.
- What are we going to do?
- Tell the
