The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944)

*** out of 5

Having little to no connection to the previous installments in the series aside from the main character having the name "Griffin," this sequel is most interesting for the kitchen sink cast of recognizable character actors it assembles.  Beside Jon Hall in the lead role, we have John Carradine as the scientist who makes him invisible, Evelyn Ankers as the girl he wants for his own, the fearsome Gale Sondergaard in a much tamer mood than she was usually cast, silent comedian Billy Bevan as a bumbling sergeant, and, probably the best thing about the film, the comic actor Leon Errol as a would-be sidekick to the Invisible Man.
