Paul Krenner, an ex-major with delusions of grandeur, has forced scientist Peter Ulof to develop a radiation-based technique to turn men invisible, with which process he plans to create an invisible army to sell to the highest bidder. He busts safecracker Joey Faust out of prison and forces him to undergo the invisibility treatment so he can steal more radium to further the experimentation. Plans go awry when Faust discovers there is a side-effect to the invisibility treatments he didn't count on. Written by

When Drake uses binoculars to view what is left of ground zero for the lab explosion, the perspective of what he is seeing through the binoculars changes four times (one of the views is from ground up at a man in a fallout suit), all of which are technically impossible from his vantage point.

I know what I've been, Joey, but I can change all that. What are you doing?
Giving you your split. You're on your own, Baby!
But you... you said we would be together!
Honey, right now I need a car more than I need you. You can start walking anytime.
But you can't just go off and leave me... Joey?

Reasonably enjoyable diversion, no where near as bad as most say
"The Amazing Transparent Man" is one of the latter films by Edgar G. Ulmer. Obviously, it's nowhere near as good as his masterpieces "Detour" or "The Black Cat". It isn't even as good as "Strange Illusion" or "Bluebeard". Still, for what it is (a slight second feature), it's actually not half bad. The purpose of these films was to entertain, and despite the low rent production values and seeming lack of interest from the entire cast and crew, "The Amazing Transparent Man" manages to avoid being dull. The film runs a scant hour length, and doesn't get bogged down in any character development which really wouldn't work within the context. The film is sloppily made, but that's part of the charm. They simply don't make these economic chillers anymore. Plus, the combination of science fiction and gangster story is a nice touch. If you like creature features, you could really do a whole lot worse than "The Amazing Transparent Man" for late night viewing. (5/10)
