  • Boris Karloff had been the studio's original choice for the role of the Invisible Man, but James Whale wanted someone with more of an "intellectual" voice. Claude Rains was Whale's first and only choice.
  • In order to achieve the effect that Claude Raines wasn't there when his character took off the bandages, the director had Raines dressed completely in black velvet and filmed him in front of a black velvet background.
