Working for O.S.I., the Office of Scientific Investigation, A-Man agent Jeffrey Stewart and his partner Dan Forbes are sent to a local hardware store where they find a strong magnetic field has magnetized every metal item in the store. Investigating further, they eventually trace the source of the magnetism to an airborn flight carrying scientist Howard Denker, now dying of radiation poisoning, who has carted on board with him a new radioactive element which he has bombarded with alpha particles for 200 hours. The element, dubbed 'serranium' grows geometrically by creating matter out of energy which it absorbs from metallic objects surrounding it. Stewart calculates that if the substance is not destroyed soon that within 24 hours or so it will have grown large enough to throw Earth out of its orbit.Written by

The jet fighter shown as transporting the "magnetic monster" was a Lockheed "Shooting Star" T-33 two-seat pilot training aircraft. See more »
In the early scene in the hardware store, when the scientists toss washers up to the ceiling to determine a magnetic source, the the washers roll and spin before settling on the ceiling, just as some coins would do so if dropped on the floor. A magnetic force strong enough to magnetize much heavier objects in the store would have pulled the washers directly to the ceiling without the extraneous movement. See more »
The Canadian government operates a top-secret plant in Nova Scotia. They own the most powerful Deltatron in existence. When they realize the common danger, they'll let us use it.
Nova Scotia is 4000 miles away. The period between cycles is 11 hours. How are we gonna transport it there in that time?
Our jets travel at 600 miles an hour. And what's more, the new alloys used in our jets are non-magnetic. They will not be affected by the cargo. You, Dr. Stewart, and Forbes can follow in another ...

They go deep under ground off Nova Scotia? That sounds familiar....
An interesting but rather odd and contrived story. Yes it's nice to see a serious attempt at authentic science. But it really fails rather badly at that -- even though it has the aura of authenticity.
Why did the writers of the movie feel it was necessary to go to Canada? Did audiences of the time accept the oddly dressed workers as Canadians? They were, of course, Germans acting in a movie from 1934.
As I write this in 2018, I wonder if other new viewers had the same thought as me -- they are going 1700 feet underground along the coast of Nova Scotia? My God -- it's Oak Island!!
