Format: VHS Tape
"Attack of the 50 Foot Woman," the 1958 cult classic, is everything that the 1957 science fiction film "The Incredible Shrinking Man" is not. It is about a woman instead of a man, growing bigger instead of shrinking, vengeance instead of philosophy, and bad instead of good. However, I come down on the side of those that think this film is gloriously bad and therefore an enjoyable camp romp.
Heiress Nancy Archer (Allison Hayes) is driving around in the California desert on Route 66 when a satellite crashes to earth and she has an encounter with a giant. Nancy heads back to town and tells everyone what happened, but the police just think she has been off on one of her drinking binges again (Nancy has been institutionalized in the past, you see). As for her husband, Harry (William Hudson), he is too busy paying attention to that cheap tramp Honey Parker (Yvette Vickers). Only now Harry sees his big chance to have Nancy declared mentally incompetent so he can get her $50 million inheritance and that big diamond she wears on the cheap chain around her neck. Fortunately, Nancy is again abducted by the giant alien and when she comes back to town she is 50-feet tall and ready to go on the attack with Harry her prime target.
The sequence as Nancy slowly but surely trashes the town as she tracks down Harry redeems the rest of the film, even if the same shot shows up repeatedly (albeit sometimes backwards). The sight of Allison Hayes in her cloth bikini is as memorable an image as you will find in science fiction films from the Fifties, right up there with Gort's appearance in "The Day the Earth Stood Still." Up to that point the film belongs to Yvette Vickers, who attains a level of performance as a bad girl usually reserved for your more traditional exploitation films from this period.

When I was a little boy living in the Woodside Housing Projects in the early 1960s, a status symbol amongst the kids was how many times one had seen "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" on TV. It seemed like it was on TV every week, on the Zacherley-hosted "Chiller Theater". Clips from it were even featured on the opening intro of "Chiller Theater", along with clips from "Plan 9 From Outer Space", "The Ape Man", "Killers From Space", "The Cyclops", and "Frankenstein's Daughter". Kids were easy to please back then.
This soon-to-be 45 year old kid STILL loves this film. "Attack" is essentially a trashy soap opera, featuring a philandering husband, an alcoholic heiress, a sexy "other woman", and, to top it off, a 30 foot giant who, in the words of artist Frank Dietz, looks like a gigantic Fred Mertz in a Roman costume!
Alcoholic heiress Nancy Archer (played by the voluptuous Allison Hayes, who died WAY too young), sees a flying saucer, which looks like the bubble Glinda travels in in "The Wizard of Oz". The 30 foot Fred Mertz lookalike emerges from the craft, and covets Nancy's fabulous diamond, "The Star of India". He wants it to power his spacecraft, or maybe for his own personal jewelry collection. Of course, everyone thinks that Nancy is just seeing pink elephants, including her two-timing, fortune-hunting husband Harry. Harry and his sexy girlfriend Honey Parker, (played by red-headed vixen Yvette Vickers) want Nancy committed, so they can get their greedy, sweaty little hands on her millions. What they don't bargain for is that Nancy has become contaminated by radiation from her encounter with Fred Mertz.

Preposterous, yet oddly watchable, bargain basement sci-fi, easily one of the worst flicks of the genre. The plot, such as it is, concerns a two-timing husband (William Hudson) and his drunky wife (the stacked and proud of it Allison Hayes), whose close encounter with an unamazing colossal alien triggers a malady even more horrible than water weight gain. Confined by the bumbling constabulary to her bedroom (apparently it's a VERY big room), Ms. Hayes' gigantism is suggested by a single huge, ugly, patently fake-looking papier-mache hand. (Just laugh and be glad this was the only body part thus contrived.) It's not until the closing minutes that Ms. Hayes slips her bonds and is seen in full, barely clad in the latest in sheet chic as she saunters sultrily in search of her no-good husband. By this time, she's not only fifty feet tall, give or take, she's suddenly blonde, buff and (oh, those nutty effects guys!) occasionally transparent to boot. Finding Hudson in a local dive, the empowered giantess uses her huge, ugly, fake hand to exact hilarious revenge on what is surely filmdom's sorriest excuse ever for a human dummy. You'll laugh, you'll mock, you'll be amazed at how much deliciously bad movie a couple thousand bucks could make back in the Fifties. (Four star rating based on film's high campiness factor, rather than any real cinematic merit, of which it has zilch.)

Even though this film may have been nominated as the worst movie of all time, it's an all time B-Movie classic!
I'm sure you know aht the movie's all about. A rich but neglected woman encounteres a spaceship, then later on grows and grows into a beautiful Giantess destroying the city, insearhc of her two-timing husband.
-Bad acting -Awfull special effects -Black & White
What more could you want?!
