4D MAN 1959 (IMAGE)
Well made sci-fi film about a man who finds he is capable of walking thru any object. Robert Lansing is a scientist, who, after some experimentation is able to walk thru solid objects. However, when he comes in contact with people, he drains them of their life energy and they die of instant old age while he stays strong. Lee Meriwether and James Congdon round out the excellent cast. Filmed in color by the same people who brought you the Blob and Dinosaurus, this is a very well made and entertaining film with a very unique concept. Lansing is very good in the title role and Meriwether is excellent as his girlfriend who soon begins to suspect things aren't right. One of the best of the 50's sci-fi films.
