(1983) Pip Donaghy, David Gwillim, Lila Kaye, Ron Pember, Merelina Kendall. This six-part, two-disc mini-series is a vivid retelling of the classic H. G. Wells story and probably comes the closest to the Wells original than any other screen version. Donaghy is superb as Griffin, the man destined to go mad because of his own fantastic discovery. The special effects are quite good and the acting by the whole cast is excellent with Kaye giving Una O’Connor a run for her money as Mrs. Hall. There are some moments of humor dropped in, contrasted by the grim reality of the madness slowly overcoming Griffin and turning him into a mad invisible monster. Way cool! Color, 16mm.
