1960, 58 min, 16mm, b&w

This screening is part of: AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL PICTURES

Film Notes

Print courtesy of the Academy Film Archive.

“Warning: Joey Faust, escaped convict, THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN, has vowed to ‘appear’ invisibly IN PERSON at every performance of this picture in this theatre. Police officers are expected to be present in force, but the management will not be responsible for any unusual or mysterious happenings while Faust is in the theatre.”


“The French call movies like this films maudits, ‘damned films,’ born under a black cloud with no more chance to be seen and appreciated than a Thalidomide baby. The irrepressible Edgar G. Ulmer made this 1960 feature back-to-back with BEYOND THE TIME BARRIER in the space of three weeks, using standing ‘sets’ provided by the Texas State Fairground. …[B]oth are moving testimonies to the indomitability of the creative spirit, even when faced with the most absurd limitations of budget and time. Ulmer, surely, was some sort of saint – no director ever humbled himself more thoroughly in pursuit of his art.” –Dave Kehr, CHICAGO READER
