The Amazing Colossal Man Movie
1957, 1:20 minutes run time
Movie set and filmed in Las Vegas
This month we will feature a Nevada-themed movie in honor of Halloween.
Lt. Col. Glenn Manning is inadvertently exposed to a plutonium bomb blast at Camp Desert Rock. Though burned over 90% of his body, he survives, and begins to grow in size. As he grows, his heart and circulatory system fail to keep pace with his growth, and he is gradually losing his mind as a result of reduced blood supply to his brain. He reaches 50 feet tall before his growth is stopped. By this time he has become insane. He escapes and wreaks havoc upon Las Vegas before he is finally stopped.
As always, after the program, Neal will answer questions from the audience.
