After her husband Andre Delambre is crushed to death in a mechanical press, his wife recounts to his brother Francois Delambre and police Inspector Charas the events of the previous few months. They were very much in love and with their little boy, a very happy family. Andre was experimenting with teleportation - transporting objects from one point to another by breaking the object down to the atomic level and then reassembling it in a receiver a distance away. The system had some glitches - it seemed to work with inanimate object but his cat disappeared when he tried teleporting it. He thinks he's solved all of the problems with his invention and decides to try and teleport himself. When a fly enters the teleportation device with him, disaster strikes.Written by
Michael Rennie was offered the title role but declined it because his head would be covered through most of the picture. See more »
When Philippe shows François Delambre the web where the Fly is trapped, he clearly points to a small white object on one side of the web, which is supposed to represent the Fly, while on the opposite side of the web is a large, brown toy spider. In the very next shot - a reverse angle close-up - the hand-puppet spider is almost literally on top of the Fly. See more »
You've commited murder just as much as Helene did. You killed a fly with a human head. She killed a human with a fly head.

As a child in the theater I screamed and had bad dreams....
As a child in the theater I screamed and had bad dreams.... Then as a teenager I watched the "Fly" on TV and still Jumped back in fear at the sight of that horrible face! A few years later my friends and I watched it on TV again, but this time I turned down the sound at the scary scenes ( theorizing that the music was the cause of the fear) but even at low volume the haunting cries of "Help me...Help me" gave me the chills. A MUST SEE DF.
