H.G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Behind The Mask

Guest Stars:  Dennis Price, Deborah Watling, Edwin Richfield, Barbara Chilcott, David Ritch
Directed by Pennington Richards
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A disfigured wealthy collector begs the Invisible Man to make him invisible as well, but has a secret agenda to use his new ability for murder.

Dennis Price turns in a fine guest performance under makeup and a partial mask in a well-scripted episode from Leslie Arliss and Stanley Mann.  Although this installment features fine effects work, it's what's not shown which is most effective, leaving Price's disfigurement up to the audience's imagination, and his quest for revenge explained through dialogue alone.
