Attack of the Puppet People ★★ Six Inches Tall 1958

This alternative classic from the prolific Bert I. Gordon, a rival to Ed Wood Jr. in the schlock hall of fame, will not make anyone forget “The Incredible Shrinking Man.” The insane dollmaker Dr. Franz (Hoyt) shrinks six people (including our heroes Agar and Kenny) to the size of Ken and Barbie. Can they escape the mad scientist? The dog? The rat? The effects are nostalgically charming. 79m/B DVD . John Agar, John Hoyt, June Kenney, Sally Reynolds, Susan Gordon; D: Bert I. Gordon; W: George Worthing Yates; C: Ernest Laszlo; M: Albert Glasser.
