THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN (1957) During a plutonium bomb test, an Army Lieutenant Colonel receives the full force of the blast, but instead of dying from having all his skin burned off, he grows into an amazing colossal man, just like the poster predicted he would. A classic American Pictures International cheapie – competently made and acted, and with the appropriate degree of gravitas – but as hokey as the day is long. The scene with the colossal guy sitting with his tiny fiancé getting all philosophical is a hoot, but it’s not to be outdone by the guy in the helicopter who brings a giant hypodermic needle to the party. You see, the big guy was set to get married in Vegas the night of the blast, and in his growing delusional madness he finds his way there anyway… but can’t get into The Sands, so he rips the joint up – just like Sinatra would have. Pushed into production to capitalize on the success of The Incredible Shrinking Man, the great Roger Corman was originally attached as director, but ended up finding something better to do. This is hosted at VEOH, so it may not be available in all locations. EXCLAMATION-MARKED TAG LINE (USING A QUESTION MARK): When Will It Stop? DIALOG ALERT: “Perhaps it isn’t I who’s growing, but it’s everyone who’s shrinking!” Amazingly, I couldn’t find The Amazing Colossal Man on DVD at Amazon, only VHS, HERE.
