Frank Raymond, grandson of the original Invisible Man, still has the old formula but considers it too dangerous to use, even when Axis agents try to get it. But Pearl Harbor brings him to volunteer his own services as an invisible agent in Germany. Though a bit cold (clothes aren't invisible), his adventures are more comedy than thriller (with occasional grim reminders) as he makes fools of Nazi officials and romances a luscious double agent, in search of Hitler's secret plan...

The scene in which Conrad Stauffer asks Arnold Schmidt to sign a document saying he was well-treated (after Conrad Stauffer's men have broken Arnold Schmidt's fingers) was parodied by Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong on their 1972 album, Big Bambu. See more »
To make himself somewhat more "visible" to Maria in her bedroom, Frank puts on a robe and covers his face and hands with cold cream. When he speaks, his teeth and the inside of his mouth are plainly visible. See more »

Fantasy, but a great reminder of why we defeated the Nazis.
This movie is of course fantasy. (Unless if the scientists are holding out on us.) But, it was well done. The special effects were fantastic considering when the movie was made. Even by today's special effects standards I was totally impressed with how they made Frank Raymond disappear. On the dramatic side the movie was a little slapstick at times with Frank spilling food on people without them knowing how it was happening. But, the movie was a great reminder of how evil the Nazi people were. It's hard to believe that people could be so wicked and yet that part of the movie was not fantasy. It did happen. Overall I enjoyed the movie and it all played well from beginning to end.
