The Amazing Transparent Man (1960) – Public Domain Full Movie!

The Amazing Transparent Man is a 1960 science fiction film starring Marguerite Chapman. Based on the 1956 novel The Shrinking Man by Richard Matheson, it is an American B-movie which follows the story of an insane ex U. S. Army major who uses an escaped criminal to steal materials to improve the invisibility machine his scientist prisoner made.[1] It was one of two sci-fi films shot back to back by director Edgar G. Ulmer (the other being Beyond the Time Barrier).[2] The combined filming schedule for both films was only two weeks. The film was later featured in an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

The film has received very poor reviews and suffered in popularity as a result of its low budget. Leading science fiction author David Wingrove commented in his Science Fiction Source Book that “Its cheap-budget origins show throughout. Amazing claims too much for what is essentially a thriller involving an escaped criminal…”
