Time for Movie #4, Disc #1, "50 Greatest Horror Films". That remains to be seen....
They get stopped right off the bat via roadblock, and he simply faux sleeps and lowers his hat. Laura's driving, and explains to the cops that her husband's had too much to drink at a party, and besides, his license is suspended for drunk driving. The cops shoo them on.
The major has a couple other people he's blackmailing or deceiving as well. There's Professor Ulof (Ivan Triesault), German Scientist and Refugee, who accidentally killed his own wife during experiments he was forced to carry out in the concentration camps. All of his patients were hooded, and he didn't know it was his wife, until it was too late. Krenner is holding his daughter, Maria (Cormel Daniel), hostage, and will kill her if he doesn't cooperate. And then there's Julian (Red Morgan...whose pretty beastly by the way), his henchman, who works for him only because the Major says that his son is alive in a European prison, and that he can help to get him out....after Julian takes care of some business for him. Turns out, his son is dead.
The Major needs more radioactive chemicals, but they're kept under tight security in town, so the Major and Faust, take up a symbiotic relationship: the Major won't turn in him, and Faust will pull off the heist...for 25k. He's able to sneak in the building, cut the breakers to the alarm system, knock out a couple of guards, and break into the vault stealing the necessary canisters. On the way home, why not stop at the First National Bank to make a large withdrawal? Alas, while standing in the main lobby, holding a bag of money, he starts to materialize.
Professor Ulof warns the Major that prolonged treatment makes the process of transparency unpredictable and unreliable. It will come and go as it pleases, and will eventually end in death. It's just not working anymore. He needs to do some more research and work the bugs out. The Major has a better suggestion, he wants him to use the dreaded X13, which is stronger, yet lethal, but it works better, and he doesn't care if Faust dies or not, since he's basically just a test subject anyway--the conduit between an army and an invisible army to wreak havoc and take over the world!
Next it's Night of the Living Dead (1968) (YAY!)
