The Invisible Wall is a 1947 American film noir directed by Eugene Forde starring Don Castle, Virginia Christine and Richard Gaines.[1]

The movie features an early performance by Jeff Chandler as a gangster.[2]


Told in flashback, the film recounts how gambler Harry Lane (Castle) ended up accused of murder: Returned from the war he took up his old job working for bookmaker Marty Floyd (Keane). Dispatched by his boss to deliver $20,000 to a contact in Las Vegas, he foolishly loses some of the money at the gambling tables, then loses the rest of it to a conman (Gaines). His attempts to recover the money result in him accidentally killing the conman. In the end Lane is cleared when it is revealed that the victim was no victim after all.
