Storyline

Dr. Daniel Westin was a scientist working with a government thinktank known as the KLAE Corporation who was rendered invisible by a formula concocted by himself that was supposed to be used for matter transformation. Before he can return to normal, Westin discovers the federal government has plans to use his invisibility formula for warlike purposes, so he destroys the only formula. Unfortunately he has no way to become visible again, so, wearing a very realistic face mask and hands, he becomes an agent for KLAE, fighting crime and battling saboteurs, while simultaneously working in KLAE's laboratory with wife Kate to rediscover his formula. Walter Carlson was their sympathetic boss at KLAE. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Showed some potential but ran out of steam.

"The Invisible Man" from "Universal" studios, could have been a highly successful series. It showed a good deal of potential, judging by the feature length pilot episode and about another 5 episodes from the regular series. However, "The Invisible Man" seemed to lose its way and by the last episode, inspiration seemed to have come to a stand still. It is a pity as David McCallum was very well cast in the leading role, he gave his character depth and learning. Jackie Cooper was better as the Government character in the pilot episode than his replacement. I like the Government angle to the series as it gave the proceedings a bit of tension. The special effects for their time were very good and I could believe a person could be rendered invisible. I recall as a young boy during a rare British television broadcast, staring in wonder as David McCallum took off his clothing and latex which covered his whole body. At the time, he and his leading lady were held hostage in this van and the villains were certainly taken by surprise! That memory has remained ever since. I am glad I bought all of the episodes but so much more could have been done. In addition, the region 2 DVD set has now been deleted and is being sold for considerable sums of money. If you are lucky, buy this series whilst you can!
