I love trawling shops and seeking out bargain dvds. Yesterday, I bought for £1.49 a disk with 8 episodes of ‘The Invisible Man’ the b/w tv series from the late 1950’s. I remember watching it when I was about 8 years old, so I must have been looking at re-runs. Okay, some of the special effects are creaky by today’s standards, we watched all 8 episodes today and delighted in looking for wires supporting cigarettes (tut, tut) and wine glasses to create the impression they were being held by Brady (Invisible man). Having said that, it was an ambitious project snd a lot of the effects were clever, esp. the one where Brady unwraps his bandaged head to reveal nothing beneath. Naming supporting cast actors was good fun too, and surprising. Ronald Fraser, Honor Blackman, Peter Sallis, Leslie Philips, Joan Hickson and Nigel Hawthorne.

Even the box’s cover was entertaining (but unintentionally). In the write up on its back, we’re told that Brady “decided to make the best of his condition and fight organised crime and justice”. It’s rated ‘PG’ Perental Guidance and claims to have 12 episodes, we’ve only found 8. But what the hell, maybe the other 4 are invisible.

Take care

In five hundred years time, most of us will be forgotten dust. But Hitler will still be remembered, God loves irony.

Funny Ogg. He's fighting justice now too? Hah!

I've been watching the old Hammer House of Horror myself, "The House That Dripped Blood", "Guardian of the Abyss", etc. These are the colorised versions made for television now on DVD. The effects are pretty average, the acting ranges from bad to good, but the stories are excellent.

Maybe you will have to wrap the DVD in bandages to see the other four episodes?
