teaser The Invisible Menace (1938)

A series of murders at the Powder Island government arsenal is traced to a civilian employee (Boris Karloff) who is wanted in connection with an embezzlement case in Haiti. Toss in a romantic subplot with an army private and his new bride, a bomb scare, and some red herrings to distract the audience from the real killer and you have The Invisible Menace, a solid grade-B whodunit. The film was an early effort for fledgling director John Farrow (The Big Clock, Hondo) and was later remade in 1943 as Murder on the Waterfront.
