This TV-movie update of the old H.G. Wells fantasy novel stars David McCallum as brilliant scientist Daniel Weston. He's so brilliant that he develops an invisibility serum, which he applies to himself. Two inconveniences: Weston must wear a special mask so that his wife (Kathleen Fee) can see him; and enemy agents, headed by traitorous scientist Alex Henteloff, would give their eye teeth for the serum. Much was made in the press releases of the "blue screen" process that created the illusion of invisibility; would that as much time have been expended on the ho-hum script. Despite its flaws, Invisible Man resulted in a weekly TV series, which ran from September 1975 to January 1976; its format was later refashioned for two more short-lived series, Gemini Man and The Man From Atlantis.
