What’s the first thing that struck me while watching Dr. Cyclops? That it’s a film from 1940 and in color…which seems fairly early. Turns out it’s the earliest: the first American sci-fi film in Technicolor. And it has considerable appeal since the bad guy shrinks his victims–shades of Irwin Allen. It always seems to go back to Irwin Allen with me. Also, is it just me or is Albert Dekker seeming to be going for Ultimate Mad Scientist Villainy status? I mean, I know this isn’t a Marvel movie and I still expect him to say Hail Hydra. Jebus.
Anyway, enjoy Honey, I Shrunk My Adversaries.
