This Universal film, released in 1940, featured the first female Invisible Streaker in motion pictures, and the first one to be Played for Laughs, in defiance of the anti-nudity clause in the Hays Code.

Professor Gibbs (John Barrymore) is seeking human test subjects for his invisibility machine. His newspaper ad is answered by Kitty Carroll (Virginia Bruce), a gorgeous but oppressed fashion model. After she becomes invisible, Kitty exacts revenge against her former boss, Mr. Growley (Charles Lane). Meanwhile, a criminal gang plots to steal the invisibility machine.

Not to be confused with the Invisible Woman of Marvel Comics.
