The Invisible Woman (1940) The eccentric Professor Gibbs puts an ad in the newspaper: "WANTED: A human being willing to become invisible. No remuneration. Box P19." But Gibbs is no crackpot. He really did invent an invisibility machine, and he really does need his first human guinea pig. He's rather surprised when the K. Carroll who answers his ad turns out to be a woman: Kitty Carroll, a dress model with an oppressive boss. And that boss is the real reason she wants to be invisible. The beleaguered model wants to revenge herself on him and thus win one for the working girl. Meanwhile, the loony scientist's patron, the wealthy playboy Richard Russell, learns he has just squandered every penny of the family fortune on girls who sue. His long suffering manservant keeps threatening to resign. But if that invisibility machine works, Richard will have it made - again. Unfortunately, the machine has attracted the interest of some thugs whose boss is stuck in Mexico unable to cross the border. Invisibility is just what he needs to get past the checkpoint.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Prof. Gibbs: [to a car] Put yourself into the garage, lazy bones!
  • [last lines] Prof. Gibbs: Hereditary.
  • Richard Russell: Call the airport. We're leaving. George: Oh, airport! Richard Russell: No, on the phone.
  • [Foghorn, now a falsetto, is at the door] Richard Russell: Who is it? George: I don't know, sir, but it sounds like Jenny Lind.
  • [George throws the contents of a goldfish bowl over Richard] Richard Russell: George, did you have to throw the fish? George: It's Friday, sir.
Movie Trivia:
  • Margaret Sullavan, who owed Universal one picture on an old contract, was originally assigned the starring role. With more attractive roles being floated her way, she balked at appearing in the film, feeling it was beneath her. When she failed to appear for the rehearsals, the studio slapped her with a restraining order preventing her from working anywhere. Eventually she agreed to fulfill her contract by appearing in Back Street (1941) and Virginia Bruce stepped into the role.
  • Despite the lightweight nature of the film, it was budgeted at $300,000.00, (about twice the amount of a typical Universal B-feature of the time) making it one of the studio's most expensive productions for 1940.
  • In March 1941, Universal Pictures was distributing this film on a double bill with Trail of the Vigilantes (1940).
