There was some discussion during Episode 18 as to whether the Ring made Isildur (and other men) invisible.
The One Ring makes men invisible as well as hobbits. Isildur became invisible when he wore the Ring. This is stated in Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age in The Silmarillion. The Disaster of Gladden Fields also indicates Isildur became invisible, although when he wore the Ring the Elendilmir could still be seen. Gandalf tells Frodo (The Shadow of the Past) that if a mortal uses the Ring often to become invisible, he ultimately “fades.”
