Colin Clive

  1. Claude Rains, The Invisible Man, 1933.   Both stars of the 1930 Frankenstein – Dr Clive and monstrous Boris Karloff – had  talks with their director, James Whale. Clive wanted a break back in the UK.  Boris accepted the lead until a bitter row with Whale ruined any collaboration…for a full year and The Bride of Frankenstein.

  2. Lionel Atwill, Lancer Spy, 1937.   Clive was Colonel Fenwick when  he fell ill and died.  Therefore, Atwill joined British George Sanders and Mexican Dolores Del Rio – both passing for Germans!
