Ivan Tors (born Iván Törzs, June 12, 1916 Budapest, Austria-Hungary – June 4, 1983) was a Hungarian playwright, film director, screenwriter, and film and television producer with an emphasis on non-violent but exciting science fiction, underwater filmed television and films, and films about animals. He started a Miami-based film studio now known as Greenwich Studios, and later a music company.


Tors wrote several plays in Hungary before moving to the US just prior to World War II. He enlisted in the US Army Air Corps then transferred to the Office of Strategic Services. Following the war he was contracted to MGM as a screenwriter.

In 1952 Tors made Storm over Tibet, his first film as co-writer and producer. He began his partnership with fellow Hungarian Andrew Marton with this film.

Long interested in fact-based science fiction (often with an underwater setting), Tors partnered with actor Richard Carlson in the 1950s to create A-Men Films, a production company devoted to making movies about its own fictitious exploits.

Under the A-Men banner, Tors wrote and produced films such as The Magnetic Monster (1951), Riders to the Stars (1954), Gog (1954) and the TV series Science Fiction Theatre, Sea Hunt, and The Aquanauts (starring Keith Larsen, Jeremy Slate, and Ron Ely and renamed Malibu Run). He created the NBC science fiction series The Man and the Challenge, starring principally George Nader and Jack Ging and was executive producer of Ripcord.

His Office of Scientific Investigation (OSI) trilogy consisted of: The Magnetic Monster, Riders to the Stars, and Gog.

In the 1960s Tors left science fiction and made several films and television series spin offs involving animals such as Flipper, Daktari, and Cowboy in Africa a TV spinoff of his film Africa Texas Style. Tors was an executive producer of MGM Television's 1967 Off to See the Wizard. He directed some films like Rhino!, Zebra in the Kitchen (1965) and Galyon (1977). Several of Tors' television series were made by the production company Ziv TV.

His production company, Ivan Tors Films did the underwater filming for the James Bond film Thunderball as well as filming his own Around the World Under the Sea for MGM and Daring Game and Hello Down There for Paramount. The company also co-produced a nature-themed documentary series, Jambo, for the NBC television network from 1969 to 1971. Tors studio filmed the Soupy Sales film debut in Birds Do It.

Tors was married to film actress Constance Dowling from 1955 until her death in 1969. Tors himself died 14 years later, eight days before his 67th birthday. He died in Mato Grosso, Brazil where he was scouting a new TV series.

After a fatal car crash in Lordsburg, New Mexico, investigators find a mysterious machine component that they turn over to the nearby Los Alamos National Laboratory for identification. Scientists there declare that it is one component of an advanced portable nuclear weapon designed by an unknown, presumably hostile power. The discovery prompts Paul Reagan (Richard Denning), chief of the Security Investigation Division (SID), to send agent John Williams (John Ireland) to investigate the source of these components and to prevent them from being assembled into a functioning weapon. As more parts are smuggled into the United States, the investigation expands and a pattern begins to emerge which points to Marseilles, France.

A pair of agents from the Office of Scientific Investigation (OSI) are sent to investigate a local appliance store, where all of the clocks have stopped at the same time, and metal items in the store have been magnetized. The source of this is traced to an office located directly above the store, where scientific equipment is found, along with a dead body. There are also signs of radioactivity, but the cause of the difficulties itself is clearly no longer in the room, or the immediate area.
