H.G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Crisis In The Desert

Guest Stars:  Adrienne Corri, Eric Pohlmann, Martin Benson, Peter Sallis, Howard Pays
Directed by Pennington Richards
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

The Invisible Man is sent to the Middle East to rescue a government agent captured by a cruel officer who plans to torture him for information.

Although the heavy makeup used to pass the British cast off as Arabs is unfortunate, this episode remains a fine adventure with a colorful foreign backdrop and some nice suspenseful scenes.  Corri turns in a strong guest performance as Brady's contact, and the special effects, including an invisible Brady parachuting into enemy territory, are top notch.
