Working with most of the same crew, this was one of several early 1950s films made by Wilder and son Myles on a financing-for-distribution basis with United Artists and, on occasion, RKO Radio Pictures. See more »
One witness questioned by police Lieutenant Bowers describes the alien as a "giant of a man", yet later when the alien is seen jumping down from some stairs into an empty lot and takes off running and knocking over the photographer, the alien appears to be only of medium height. See more »
Lieutenant, are you sure there were no traces of this saboteur - this X-man - found after the explosion in the oil fields?

The story is mainly about people running up and down hallways and stairs. I hope they got paid double for all their huffing and puffing. Oh yeah, there's also something about an invisible man in a diving helmet and pajamas. From the way he breathes, he ought to have his adenoids checked. I think he's from outer space, but more likely he's a diving school flunk-out. What can you say about a cheap snoozer like this with its no-name cast. Heck, there isn't even a sexy girl to keep us guys in the back row entertained. Between all the pseudo-scientific palaver and the sprinting back and forth, there's not much left to look at. My guess is it played one or two drive-ins farthest from town, and then disappeared like the phantom in the movie.
