Abbott and Costello Meet the Invisible Man


the police will never catch me.

I'll be free to find out

who really killed O'Hara.

And inside of a week,

you'd be a raving maniac...

just like its discoverer,

John Griffin. No.

I've got to take

that chance.

Do you want to go insane,

as John Griffin did?

Shot down like a mad dog

as he was?

He never regained his visibility

until he was dead.

When he willed

me this formula...

I swore I'd never use it until

I'd found some safe reagent...

some means of

bringing a man back...

avoiding insanity,

perhaps restoring visibility.

Doc, unless I clear myself,

it means "the chair. "

So what difference

does it make?

Come on, that's a boy!

You can make it.

Did you see that?

What happened?

The halfback just ran around

his own end. Some trick.

We interrupt our program to

give you a police bulletin.

Have you seen this man? He's

Tommy Nelson, escaped murderer.

There's a $5,000 reward. If you

have any information, phone...

What number?


Thank you. You're right,

this guy is the killer.

Let's get outta here. No,

we've got a great case.

We'll grab the murderer and get

the reward. We can't do that.

This guy hired you and I...

Nevertheless, he's a rat.

Because he killed his manager? Because he

didn't tell us there was a reward for him.

I'm sorry, Tommy,

I can't do it.

It's the police. Let's

sneak out the back way.

Good, let's go.


We're detectives.

What am I running for?

Am I a crook? You want me to answer that?

It's the police. Stall them off and

I'll try to get out the back way.

All right, men,

take your positions.

It's a legal search

warrant. But it's ridiculous.

I've been ridiculous

before, beautiful.

Roy, you and I'll

take the upstairs.

Joe, you cover the back.

Eddie, you stay right here.

We've got to catch Nelson
