C&L's Sat Nite Chiller Theater: The Amazing Colossal Man (1957)

Movie Night with the one with the big guy, as opposed to the one with the big woman, or the little shrinking guy.

Colonel Glenn Manning is caught out in the open next to a nuclear blast and is flash-fried. Beef jerky.

The next day he's fine. (Until later, when the growing 30 feet tall becomes another symptom.)

One scientist asks another....

"And you feel that the plutonium may have some unknown quality that is responsible?"

Man, these science johnnies don't miss a thing.
