Upcoming DVD Releases





NOW AVAILABLE:
* The Invisible Man – The Complete TV Series (Film Chest)
$19.98 SRP DVD

EXTRAS: Individual Episode Synopses; Trivia; Trailer
—–THE INVISIBLE MAN, the brilliant 1958 TV sci-fi drama series, was an adaption of H. G. Wells’ 1897 novel of the same name. A precursor to The Saint, The Avengers, and the James Bond craze of the mid-1960s, this version – which portrays Wells’ classic character in a 20th century setting is perhaps the most famous of all the adaptations. Veering from the storyline of the original novel, this series follows the adventures of Dr. Peter Brady (voiced by Tim Turner), a workaholic scientist employed by the British government who is attempting to achieve invisibility with light refraction. The experiment goes wrong and turns him permanently invisible, sending him on an elusive run before he is locked up to protect this scientific secret. He eventually returns to the laboratory in order to research an antidote, and – while trying to cure himself of his invisibility – Brady agrees to undertake top secret missions for the government using his invisibility to help people in trouble, solve crimes, and defeat spies for his country. Brady becomes a one-man Impossible Missions Force as he’s dispatched to one mythical country after another to foil the forces of evil threatening the British Empire. Despite supposedly being a secret agent, as the series progressed, Brady’s invisibility became public knowledge, leading to trouble in some episodes. The all-important special effects that were the basis of the series were very good for its time, and still remain classically poignant today. If you look at the series in the context of the time it was made, the crafty use of the effects helps maintain its current relevance. Remaining faithful to the spirit of the original H.G. Wells story, Brady walks around on camera dressed in an overcoat and gloves with bandages covering his face. Produced by Ralph Smart and tight-scripted and well-written to meet the requirements of a 30-minute dramatic show, The Invisible Man ran for 26 half hour episodes from September 14, 1958 to July 5, 1959. A top team, including Brian Clemens (who later became better known for his work with The Avengers) shared the writing duties. The series featured some of the top British character actors of the time including Lisa Daniely, Deborah Watling, Honor Blackman, Peter Sallis, Leslie Phillips, and Ian Hendry. 3-disc set.
