Mad Mad Movie Index

Making a list of the movies I've seen, in alphabetical order, seems like the perfect way to keep from accidently viewing a film twice. And it also helps me determine what films are in my collection and what I need to acquire.

So, here are the movies I've watched so far (with info):


The Amazing Transparent Man
(1960)
Crazed ex-military officer Paul Krenner has dreams of world domination when he forces unwilling scientist Peter Ulof to do his bidding. Ulof must develop a process to induce invisibility through atomic-radiation. With this in his armory, Krenner plans to create an invisible military force and sell it to the highest bidder. They break safecracker Joey Faust out of jail and make him invisible so that he can steal more radium. The events take an unexpected turn. Starring Maguerite Chapman.
