Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1957. Collection of three striking vintage black-and-white still photographs from the 1957 US film. The stills demonstrate the extraordinary sets constructed and employed in the making of the picture, at a time when the special effects needed to visualize the world of a man reduced to being only a few inches were essentially nonexistent. Especially intriguing are two shots, one a candid shot of the film's leads, Grant Williams and Randy Stuart, hanging around on the oversize set, the other a shot of Williams dragging a pair of scissors six times his size up a set of equally oversize concrete steps.
A landmark science fiction film, adapted by Matheson from his own novel, about a man who begin shrinking after being exposed to a strange mist.
8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Fine condition, with scene descriptions tipped on to the verso of eight of the nine stills.
National Film Registry.
