I need the name of a 1950's or 60's B&W Sci-Fi Movie?

In this movie, the man can put his hand through glass and solid objects, put gets older everytime he does it. There's a scene when he's looking through a shop window and reaches through it. Does anyone remember this film and the name of it?

    YES! That's "The 4-D Man" starring Robert Stack(I think!). I haven't seen it in years, but I remember a scene where he puts his hand through a solid piece of steel, and as he dies at the end, he falls and gets trapped inside the wall. Glad you reminded me of it!

    David P. is first with the correct response only it starred Robert Lansing not Robert Stack. Patty Duke played his young daughter in the film.

    No. I was hoping to answer "Creature From The Black Lagoon."
