Timeslip (a.k.a. The Atomic Man in the United States) is a 1955 British black-and-white science fiction film, produced by Alec C. Snowden, directed by Ken Hughes, that stars Gene Nelson and Faith Domergue. It is based on the science fiction novel The Isotope Man by Charles Eric Maine, who also wrote the screenplay.
In 1956 the film was shortened from 93 minutes to 76 minutes and distributed in the U.S. by Columbia Pictures on a double bill with Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
Authorities in the United Kingdom discover an unconscious man who is also radioactive. They also learn he has an exact physical double; the good man agrees to help find his evil double before he destroys the world.
The film was partially funded by its UK distributor, Anglo-Amalgamated.
