Det. Roberts: Installments?
Lou Francis: Yeah, he did a Gypsy Rose Lee, come here!
[they find Tommy's clothes lying about]
Lou Francis: That, that's all that's left of him.
Det. Roberts: Evidently Nelson changed clothes... what was he wearing when you last saw him?
Lou Francis: Air... nothing but air... and then he asked me how he looked.
Det. Roberts: Wearing air? What are you talking about?
Lou Francis: I went to shake his hand, his hand was gone, I looked up to speak to him, his head was gone. Then he took off his shirt, his body was gone, he took off his pants, his legs were gone! Then he spoke to me, I was gone.

Facts about

Several shots are from Universal's The Invisible Man Returns: the scenes where the guinea pig is turned Invisible (reversed footage), the harness of the invisible guinea pig moving around its cage and the scene where the Invisible Man is unpacking a suitcase of clothes left outside in the woods.
This was originally intended to be a straight film in the Invisible Man series. After the huge grosses from Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein, the script was rewritten to make it another thrill comedy with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello. As it happened, Abbott and Costello met an invisible man in the earlier film, too, but it was a different character.
The picture in Dr. Gray's laboratory of Griffin, the inventor of the invisibility serum, is a photo of Claude Rains, who played the title role in The Invisible Man.
