The Invisible Ray (1936) The scientist Janos Rukh has been expelled from the scientific community due to the lack of credibility in his researches. Living isolated in a castle with his blind mother and his wife Diane, he makes a private presentation of the recently discovered invisible ray to his colleague Dr. Felix Benet, and succeeds in being sponsored by Sir Francis Stevens and his wife Lady Arabella Stevens in an expedition to Nigeria, where he believe he could find a meteor with Radium X. Once in Africa, Janos leaves the expedition alone and finds the meteor, but is exposed to its radiation, acquiring a deadly touch that immediately kills anyone who is touched by him. Meanwhile, Diane falls in love for the son of Lady Arabella, Ronald Drake. Dr. Benet finds an antidote to control the effects of the radiation in Janos to be daily injected, but advises that the side effect could bring madness to him. Dr. Benet returns to Paris and steals the findings of Janos, exposing and using Janos's researches to the scientific community, while the deranged Janos seeks revenge against those that have betrayed him.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Felix Benet: You observe: those finger marks cannot be seen in the light!
  • Ronald Drake: Diana, my dear, there are no such things as curses!
  • Ronald Drake: He shan't reach out of the grave and ruin our lives!
  • Dr. Janos Rukh: It poisoned me. [pause as his dog comes up; he pets it, and it dies]
  • Dr. Felix Benet: There are only two people he wants to destroy: two... or [looming over Ronald Drake] Dr. Felix Benet: , perhaps three.
Movie Trivia:
  • The church in which Frank Lawton and Frances Drake get married, though called the "Church of the Six Saints" in the film, is actually the set of Notre-Dame Cathedral recycled from the 1923 Universal production "The Hunchback of Notre-Dame," starring Lon Chaney, Sr.
  • The scene of Boris Karloff being lowered into the pit containing the Radium X meteor was reused in a 1939 Universal serial, "The Phantom Creeps," starring Bela Lugosi. Karloff essentially "doubled" for Lugosi in the sequence since in "The Phantom Creeps" it was Lugosi who was lowered into the pit.
  • Boris Karloff, who was actually an Englishman (true name: William Henry Pratt), plays a Hungarian scientist. Bela Lugosi, who was actually a Hungarian plays a Frenchman.
