Storyline

Scientist Jan Benes, who knows the secret to keeping soldiers shrunken for an indefinite period, escapes from behind the Iron Curtain with the help of CIA agent Grant. While being transferred, their motorcade is attacked. Benes strikes his head, causing a blood clot to form in his brain. Grant is ordered to accompany a group of scientists as they are miniaturized. The crew has one hour to get in Benes's brain, remove the clot and get out. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Trivia

During filming, one of the two 3 inch "Proteus" models used in the miniaturization sequence was left by an open window and was subsequently carried off by a crow. See more »

Goofs

During the briefing session Dr. Michaels shows the room a diagram of the blood clot on the left side of Benes brain, and the left carotid artery where the crew will be injected. Once the operation begins though the needle is injected on Benes right carotid, and all the diagrams thereafter show the Proteus traveling around the right side of his body. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Bill Owens: Mr Grant, send a message telling them that the Proteus is ready.
Grant: The Proteus, what's that?
Capt. Bill Owens: That's the name of this vessel; sounds better than calling it the U91O35.

And What A Trip It Is!
24 February 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This film was originally introduced to me at about 8 or 9 years of age on a Saturday afternoon and it quickly became a favorite of mine. This film tells the story of a brilliant scientist who is injured on his way to offer the U.S. military some much needed info for miniaturizing people and objects and allowing them to stay in the miniature state beyond the now 60 minute time limit the military is faced with. With a top-notch cast that includes; Stephen Boyd, Edmond O'Brien, Donald Pleasence and Raquel Welch as the medical Dr.'s and scientists that are miniaturized and injected into the scientists body in an effort to repair a wound that can't be fixed through the usual means. The effects in this film are truly amazing and make for a lot of fun as the sub/crew journey through the body and face problems along the way, especially as they are attacked as foreign bodies by the scientist's own natural defense system. If you haven't had the pleasure of seeing this little gem, by all means find it and rent it and if it's been a while, why not revisit this film, I'm amazed at how well it stands up, even after almost 40 years since it's release.
