The Invisible Menace is a 1938 American mystery film directed by John Farrow and starring Boris Karloff.[1][2] It was also known as Without Warning.


An army private (Craven) and his new bride (Wilson) are trying to honeymoon on an island occupied by the military and a murderer.



The film was based on a play Without Warning by Ralph Spencer Zink which had a short run on Broadway in May 1937.[3] The New York Times called it a "competent detective play."[4]

Warner Bros bought the film rights and assigned Boris Karloff to star and John Farrow to direct. Jane Wyman was originally meant to play the female lead.[5][6]

Wyman was replaced by Marie Wilson. Filming started August 1937.[7]
