The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) Poster

Trivia

The special effects technicians were able to create giant drops of water by filling up condoms and dropping them.
Several of the gigantic props (the scissors, nails, and mousetrap for example) were part of the Universal Studio tour for several years.
Richard Matheson had originally written a screenplay for the sequel called The Fantastic Shrinking Girl in which Louise Carey begins to shrink herself. Universal had planned to produce it but the project was eventually scrapped.
