Reminds me of an episode of the TV show "Wild, Wild West" with
Robert Conrad and Ross Martin.
"The Night of the Burning Diamond"
This is one of my all-time favorite examples of the voluntary suspension
of disbelief. There is so much whacky science in this one that it's not
worth the effort to put !s after each instance.
Set in the 1870s, the villain melts diamonds in crucibles over an electric light
bulb. Then he drinks the liquid diamond which speeds him up to the point
that he becomes invisible to people moving at normal speed. In the end, West
kills him by setting him on fire with alcohol.

What always amazes me with alcohol in hte 1870's westerns is how the
guy can belly up to the bar, grab a fifth of whiskey, drain it in an
hour or so, and then get up and walk away. If you can accept that,
then the rest of the show must be easy to swallow.
