NOW YOU SEE HIM....,
This review is from: Invisible Man: Complete Series [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I've always been a great fan of David McCallum, so I'm really glad that this series has finally been released. It's just a pity that it was so short-lived, with only 13 episodes having been made. It was entertaining enough, but perhaps it just wasn't getting the ratings.
In this version of 'The Invisible Man', David plays Dr. Daniel Westin, a scientist working for the KLAE Corporation, who stumbles upon a formula which can make him invisible. What he doesn't realise is that his research has, to date, been funded by the government and that the military would like to get their hands on the formula.
Veteran actor Jackie Cooper plays Westin's boss in the pilot episode which is much more serious than the rest of the series. Craig Stevens takes over the role for the other 12 episodes and his character is more good-natured. Melinda Fee plays Westin's attractive wife and fellow scientist Dr. Kate Westin.
The music was composed by the great Henry Mancini.
There is one minor problem with these discs. As mentioned by reviewer 'FRED' on Amazon.com, there is a very slight jerkiness to the actors' movements in some episodes, particularly episode 2. This really is unforgivable.
