Directed by Jun Fukuda and scripted by Shinichi Sekizawa, who were to later work together on Godzilla series entries, The Secret of the Telegian is a fast-paced thriller with a sci-fi twist: A scientist uses teleportation—and the services of a former military man—to revenge himself on other ex-soldiers who tried to kill him during the war. Once again Eiji Tsuburaya supplies the effects, including a teleportation device that sparks and crackles in a spookily vivid electric blue.

1960, 85 min., HDCAM, color, in Japanese with live English subtitles. Directed by Jun Fukada. With Koji Tsuruta, Yumi Shirakawa, Akihiko Hirata, Tadao Nakamaru.
