    I see several versions of "The Amazing Transparent Man" available including in Mega sets. I notice that there is a singular Alpha version and a double bill Roan version. I also noted that it was slated for the MGM Midnite Movies series but disappeared?

    Which version is the best or should I hold out for the MGM release?

    Now that Sony's in charge, I wouldn't wait for any more Midnite Movies, ever. Just my opinion, but so far Sony hasn't done anything to give me hope.

    Always take Roan over Alpha, even though the accompanying Indestructible Man transfer is a bit of a letdown.

    Hope this helps!

    The public-domain film THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN can be downloaded for free in an EXCELLENT transfer (mastered from superb 35mm materials) from this site. You can download it in a DVD-quality mpeg-2 file, or a VCD-quality mpeg-1 file. This print blows away any other available copy of the film.
