What you can't see will kill you!  (taglines)

Dr. Peter Ulof

  • I did not agree to kill a man by deliberate radiation poisoning.
  • There is a man who has unlocked every door, except the one to his own soul...
  • It's a serious problem. What would you do?

Major Paul Krenner

  • You're too old-fashioned to be a genius.
  • I must know the full potential of your invention because my aim is to make an entire army invisible. Do you understand that? An entire army.


State Police officer: Imagine what our counter intelligence could accomplish if they were able to become invisible whenever necessary.
Dr. Peter Ulof: The Central Intelligence Agency has already discussed the possibilities with me.

Joey Faust: What kind of idiot are you, Krenner? I can't poke my nose inside a bank door without getting it blown off. Every newspaper in the country's got my picture!
Major Paul Krenner: You're bitter, Faust - mean and bitter. You trust no one, and you hate everyone. You're just the man I need and understand.

Major Paul Krenner: You're hardly in a position to bargain, Mr. Faust.
Joey Faust: A man with a gun doesn't have to bargain.
