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 Rose is played by Gloria Stewart, 64 years before Stewart starred as the old Rose in ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}''

* GratuitousLaboratoryFlasks: Griffin, much like his counterpart in the [[Literature/TheInvisibleMan novel]], has a bunch of lab glassware on a table in his room at the inn, including a retort that seems to serve no purpose. The only piece of equipment he's ever seen doing anything with is a beaker he mixes something in. Not as much as in the novel (certainly not the "thousand and one bottles" Wells described), but enough to make Mrs. Hall complain that her guest has "turned my best sitting room into a chemist's shop."

* InvisibleStomachVisibleFood: The film doesn't actually ''show'' the trope, but Griffin mentions that any food he eats will be visible inside him until digested, as in the original novel.
