Film: The Amazing Transparent Man
The Amazing Transparent Man is a 1960 sci-fi picture, concerning a scientist who (under duress) develops a method for turning men invisible. The particular "guinea pig" for this method is a recently liberated career criminal (Joey Faust). Said career criminal is extorted into working for The Man Behind the Man, who is hoping to create an army for profit. Faust is enlisted to steal "atomic material" to use during the research.

Eventually, Faust discovers that the invisibility process is both unstable and deadly. It falls to the scientist and various others to stop this evil scheme before the world is truly doomed.
