World of Giants

Tagged: TV

US tv series (1959). CBS TV. Produced and created by William Alland. One season. Each episode 25 minutes. Black and white.

Marshall Thompson played a man who, on a secret mission, becomes the victim of atomic radiation and suffers Miniaturization to the height of six inches (15cm). The government keeps him on as a secret agent, using him for assignments where his small size will be an advantage. His full-size partner on these missions was played by Arthur Franz. The short-lived series was really an excuse to use all the giant-sized props left over from The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), which Alland had produced for Universal. [JB]
