H.G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Shadow On The Screen

Guest Stars:  Lisa Daniely, Edward Judd, Greta Gynt, Redmond Phillips, Andre Mikhelson
Directed by Pennington Richards

The Invisible Man's help is sought by a rescuer of refugees, trying to help a sailor being held captive aboard his ship after trying to escape.

With the villains using a rather ingenious form of radar to catch and trap the Invisible Man, this is a well-visualized and stronger than usual outing, even though we realize Brady will eventually outwit them as he always does, in typical fun fashion.  Brady's voice also seems rather different this time around, perhaps meaning someone was filling in for actor Tim Turner.
