Character actor Edgar Barrier, unhappy with the way his career was shaping up at Universal, dropped out four days before production began. He was quickly replaced by Lester Matthews. See more »
During the last half of the film, visible wires/strings are used to stage many of the invisibility effects, most notably when the invisible Robert Griffin lifts the unconscious Mark Foster up unto a table. And in three different close-up shots of Brutus (Dr. Drury's dog), we see a wire holding up the dog's muzzle. See more »
Directed and produced by Ford Beebe, this invisible man installment is quite interesting. Robert Griffin(Jon Hall) returns from the "left for dead" only to find out his business partners have cheated him out of a fortune. Griffin practically stumbles into the helping hands of Dr. Drury(John Carradine), who experiments with a new formula that makes animals invisible. Griffin feels if he himself was invisible he could better seek his revenge on his double crossers. After becoming invisible, the weird doctor is in no hurry to return Griffin to normal.
I have always liked Hall even though he is not an overly exciting actor. Along with Carradine there is a very able supporting cast that includes: Lester Matthews, Leyland Hodgson, Evelyn Ankers and Leon Errol. Very creative for a small budget film. Well worth watching.
