The Reviews for 4D Man (1959) 720p

Flawed, but still enjoyable.Reviewed byHey_SwedenVote: 7/10

Producer Jack H. Harris, screenwriter Theodore Simonson, and director Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr. re-teamed for this sci-fi effort after the far more popular (and more fun) "The Blob". This viewer just didn't have as much fun with this as he would have liked given the nifty premise of this feature. Unfortunately, the pacing is a little sluggish at first, with too much time devoted to the romantic subplot of the story. But right around the halfway point, things start cooking, with more action taking place. The visual effects here are actually pretty good for the time when this was made, and the body count is fairly high. There has to a debit, however, for the persistent, overbearing jazz score (by Ralph Carmichael) which does work on occasion, but doesn't, for the most part.

Sharp featured and intense leading man Robert Lansing plays Dr. Scott Nelson, a scientist who's developed this supposedly impregnable metal which gets dubbed cargonite. His brother is another scientist, Tony Nelson (James Congdon), whose own obsession has paid off: he's figured out how to have matter occupying the same space at the same time, and pass objects through one another - including the cargonite. The Nelsons experiment together only to find that Scott can now pass *himself* through various things. Scott finds some pleasure from his newfound ability, but there are side effects - there have to be side effects in a story like this - Scott is getting progressively more insane and now rapidly ageing, and has to make physical contact with other living things to temporarily regain his youth.

Lovely Miss America winner Lee Meriwether ('Batman', 'Barnaby Jones') is the lady who comes between the brothers; Robert Strauss, Edgar Stehli, and a very young Patty Duke are also among the cast in this amusing bit of escapism with some good moments. Lansing does a solid job in the lead; you do feel for him when Meriwether, whom he wants to marry, shows more interest in Congdon, and although you know he needs to be stopped when he goes on the inevitable rampage, he's not quite a simple one-dimensional villain.

"4D Man" is no classic, but is entertaining enough for 85 minutes.

Seven out of 10.

Surprisingly effective little sci-fi'erReviewed byfrankfobVote: 7/10

Producer Jack Harris and director Irvin Yeaworth were responsible for two of the more off-the-wall sci-fi flicks of the '50s, "The Blob" and this one (they also did "Dinosaurus," but that's a whole other story). Both films appear to have been made around the same time, in 1957; while "The Blob" was released then, this picture, for some reason, wasn't put on the market until two years later. Actually, all things considered, I think it's a better film than "The Blob," although "The Blob" is actually more fun to watch. Lead actor Robert Lansing would at first glance seem to be an odd choice to star in a sci-fi movie; he was one of the more intense actors of his period, and you wouldn't think that his somewhat gruff demeanor and rugged, craggy looks would be the qualities you'd expect to find in an actor playing the lead in a sci-fi film; those parts were usually played by men who were more conventionally better looking than Lansing--and, frankly, younger. However, Harris and/or Yeaworth knew what they were doing when they cast him, as he fits this part to a tee; the coiled intensity he brought to all his roles really works here. His character is a basically good guy who lashes out when he discovers he's been betrayed (his ne'er-do-well brother steals his girlfriend) and in the process comes up with a scientific discovery that allows him to pass through solid matter. He also discovers that the side effects of this condition necessitate his draining the "energy" from others in order for him to survive. It's intriguing to watch Lansing's transformation from a decent if somewhat grouchy man to a homicidal, power-crazed "mutant"; where a sci-fi standby like John Agar would have either underplayed it or gone over the top, Lansing manages to strike just the right note, and really makes you pity, if not empathize with, the creature he's become.

Female lead Lee Merriwether has always been, in my opinion anyway, much underrated as an actress, being judged more for her status as a former Miss America than for her talent. However, she had a relaxed, naturalistic quality that many actresses with far more training and experience lacked, and I think it adds to the believability of the picture.

"The 4D Man" is no masterpiece, of course, but it's definitely one of the more intriguing, and thoughtful, sci-fi epics of the '50s. An interesting premise, very good special effects--considering the relatively low budget--solid performances and a much more adult tone than the usual '50s sci-fi flick make this a keeper. Check it out.

Not only does he share a name with Jeannie's master, but Helen Keller appears!Reviewed bylee_eisenbergVote: 7/10

Ah, the '50s. When we could always find a cool sci-fi flick in the local cinema. Whether it was "Them!", "Godzilla" or "Forbidden Planet", there was no shortage of neat movies (never mind that they usually starred really hot women). And we had the Cold War to thank. One of the lesser known flicks is "4D Man", in which some scientists (Robert Lansing and James Congdon) break down people's molecular structures and make it possible for them to walk through walls.

Totally outlandish, you say? Well, what do you expect from these sorts of movies?! I, for one, don't like it one bit when stuffy jerks say that all movies should be the "important" kind. This flick is pure entertainment, and doesn't pretend to be anything else; if anything, it's proud of being pure entertainment (and justifiably so).

And then, there's the end. Maybe it's showing that we can't always be sure of how certain things will turn out in life. Or maybe they came up with the end for no discernible reason. I don't actually know.

But anyway, this is a really cool movie. It makes one long for that era. Also starring Robert Strauss and a very young Patty Duke (happy 60th, Patty!).
