THE AMAZING TRANSPARENT MAN (1960)
If the Invisible Man was a bank robbing gangster who was created by radiation this would be his tale. And just like THE INVISIBLE MAN this isn't a horror movie but basically just a crime story with some sci-fi elements thrown in. It's not bad though even if it is all pretty basic. I do like how pretty much all the main characters are bad guys except for the German doctor who gets blackmailed into creating this invisibility-ray thing to save his daughter. Then again he may have been a Nazi in the past so maybe he wasn't such an innocent victim after all. Also the movie ends with a big nuclear mushroom cloud the way all good movies should.
I picked this up on a $5 four-movie MGM DVD set, so for that price it wasn't terrible.
