Murder! Murder!
' Here we go gathering nuts in May,
nuts in May, nuts in May
' Here we go gathering nuts in May
on a cold and frosty morning
He threatened to kill me at ten o'clock
tonight. You must lock me up.
You're not the only one
in danger, Dr Kemp.
I'll see that you have protection.
Now, Dr Cranley,
you're concealing something from me.
One moment.
Why were you and your daughter
in this house at two o'clock this morning?
Dr Kemp called me up.
He told me the man was here.
- He wanted my help.
- Why did he ring you before the police?
- Why did your daughter come too?
- She came to drive the car.
You know who
the invisible man is, Doctor.
I understand you have another assistant
besides Dr Kemp, a Dr Griffin.
- Where is Dr Griffin?
- He's gone away.
It is Griffin!
What's the good of concealing it?
It's Griffin,
and he's threatened to murder me.
He may be here now, in the garden
looking through the window,
or in the corner of my bedroom
waiting for me, waiting to kill me!
And you all sit there
doing nothing! Nothing!
We've doubled the search party
around Kemp's house.
Nothing to report, sir. The policeman's
trousers were found a mile away.
- That's all.
- Well, it's beaten me.
I'll give 1,000 for a practical idea.
He's roaming the country at will,
a madman.
(Griffiin) Here I am.
Aren't you pleased you've found me?
(Griffiin) Would you like
to keep him company?
(man) Stand away! Keep back!
(train whistle)
Thank you.
- Give me 5 worth of silver, please.
- Yes, sir.
Thank you. Good day.
- Morning.
- Morning, sir.
There you are. A present
from the invisible man.
Money! Money! Money! Money!
' up and down the City Road
' In and out the Eagle
' That's the way the money goes
' Pop goes the weasel!
Money! Money! Money! Money!
20 men of the search parties
have been killed,
and 100 in the train disaster.
The invisible man has been reported
in a hundred different places.
Now I appeal to you to help us
keep the public calm.
What plans have you got
for capturing him?
100,000 men are searching and watching.
But have you any special
secret means of getting him?
The police have offered 2,000
for the first effective means.
- Why not bloodhounds?
- The bloodhounds have lost the scent.
Why not put wet tar on all the roads,
then chase the black soles of his feet?
Because he's not a fool.
Now, we've got one hope, gentlemen.
But I daren't say a word of it here.
He may be standing there
beside you listening.
Try and sleep now, my dear.
There's nothing you can do.
We must just pray that the police
can take him without harming him.
Stand back, close against the wall.
Now then.
Drag that net clear across the room.
Now everything depends on
the way we carry out my plan.
I'll tell you it after we've made certain
he's not in this room.
Good. Now we're safe here at last.
Constable, keep an eye on that window.
Now, come here. All of you, sit down.
Now listen carefully. We've got a chance
tonight that will never come again.
He's threatened to murder
Dr Kemp at ten o'clock.
From what we know of him,
he'll do his utmost to carry that out.
He's certain to be near this house,
watching, for some time beforehand.
Now, at half past nine,
Dr Kemp, with a bodyguard of police,
will leave this house
and walk down to the police station.
It's a natural thing
for Dr Kemp to seek protection.
The invisible man is certain to be near.
He's certain to see what's happening.
You mean you're going to
use me as a bait? I can't!
- You must. You'll be perfectly safe.
- Safe? He's not human.
- He can go through prison walls.
- Don't be a fool.
I can't sit in that station waiting.
He'll kill you, kill you all,
and then take the keys and come to me.
Very well. If you're afraid
of waiting in the police station,
you can leave it directly you're inside.
There's a secret way out
through the inspector's house.
