The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)Much better than it sounds. While out boating, a man is exposed to a toxic cloud and begins to shrink. The movie realistically depicts the man's struggle to survive in his own ordinary, but now very dangerous, home. It also chronicles his emotional pain and struggles in dealing with the situation. Very well acted, great special effects. Amazing that it was made years before Silent Spring was published.
