From this point on, the story follows the invisible man's trail of destruction and terror across the land as he attempts to either find a cure for his condition or take over the country (whichever is more likely). He is eventually discovered to be a scientist named Griffin, who was engaging in some illicit experiments. His old girlfriend Flora is played by Gloria Stewart, 64 years before Stewart starred as the old Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''

* {{Determinator}}: Griffin goes 15 miles, on foot, through the snow, ''naked'' to get to Kemp's house. When he finally gets there, he wants to sit down, and says he'll want food and sleep, but first he wants to go back to the inn he was staying at and get his notes. So they hop in the car and he prepares to get go naked in the snow ''again''. (While they're driving, he at least has a blanket.) Not to mention the fact that he spent ''five years'' working all night every night on his invisibility serum. Apparently for Griffin, sleep is for the dead.
