The Man Who Wasn't There is a 1983 American 3-D comedy film directed by Bruce Malmuth and starring Steve Guttenberg.

Tagline: Being invisible gets you into spy rings, diplomatic circles, and the girl's locker room.


When he accidentally takes possession of a top-secret invisibility potion while en route to his wedding, government bureaucrat Sam Cooper (Steve Guttenberg) finds himself engulfed in a madcap free-for-all as Russians and other bad guys try to get the substance. To elude the Reds, his own State Department bosses and his livid fiancée, Cooper takes the vanishing juice himself—which only makes matters worse.



The film was produced by Frank Mancuso, Jr., who was also the producer on Friday the 13th Part III in 3-D.

The film also marked the debut of William Forsythe, as well as one of the first for Miguel Ferrer.
