Watch it now
Synopsis: The brilliant scientist Jan Benes (Jean Del Val) develops a way to shrink humans, and other objects, for brief periods of time. Benes, who is working in communist Russia, is transported by the CIA to America, but is attacked en route. In order to save the scientist, who has developed a blood clot in his brain, a team of Americans in a nuclear submarine is shrunk and injected into Benes' body. They have a finite period of time to fix the clot and get out before the miniaturization wears off.

3AEXT. TWA PLANE IN FLIGHT OVER LOS ANGELES - NIGHT

With the myriad lights of the city beneath it. As the plane lands:

3BEXT. HUGE HANGAR

Troop carriers filled with ARMED SOLDIERS are lined up before the

hangar; several official cars filled with SECRET SERVICE MEN, four

MOTORCYCLE POLICEMEN, and a caravan of three limousines complete the

waiting entourage. The CHIEF of the SECRET SERVICE looks toward the

airfield as the plane is heard taxiing in. He turns and gets into one

of the limousines, followed by the others.

3CLONG SHOT - VEHICLES ON AIRFIELD

Coming toward camera. The plane looms in the f.g. A motorized stairway

is on the way toward the door of the plane. The vehicles come to a

halt before the camera.

3DHIGH ANGLE SHOT - PLANE

The Armed Soldiers leap out of the troop carriers and form a cordon

around the plane. The Secret Service Men get out within the circle of

guards, wait for the door to open.

4EXT. JET DOOR

It opens. GRANT steps out: in middle thirties, with the air of a man

who takes nothing seriously -- his coverup for involvement. He turns

to help JAN BENES out of the plane. Benes is Mittel European in dress

and manner. Physically, he is Schweitzer at forty: the leonine head,

the shock of hair. He carries a battered suitcase. In response to

Grant's gesture, he precedes him down the stairs.

5ON THE FIELD

As Benes reaches the last step, he is greeted by the Chief of the

Secret Service, who shakes his hand, introduces him to several of his

subordinates, and leads him to a limousine. Their words are lost in

the din of jets. About to get into the car, Benes turns and moves back

quickly to Grant, who is near the bottom of the stairs. Benes extends

his hand. They shake warmly. Benes moves back toward the limousine.

6GRANT - ON PLATFORM STAIRS

He watches as Benes gets into the limousine and the caravan takes off

with the Motorcycle Escort. The Soldiers are climbing back into the

troop carriers. Grant starts down the stairs, is lost to view in the

general activity.

8AEXT. PICO BOULEVARD

Down which the cavalcade speeds.

8BEXT. WAREHOUSE DISTRICT OF STUDIO (BACK LOT)

The cavalcade races through an area of dark warehouses.

8CEXT. DESERTED STREET (BACK LOT)

A rundown area. The cavalcade starts down the street. In the second

floor of an otherwise dark house, a light is turned on and off, an

evident signal. PAN DOWN to a heavy car, waiting in a narrow alley

which opens into the street. Its headlights are off, the sound of its

engine completely drowned by the concerted roar of the oncoming cars

and motorcycles. As the cavalcade nears the entrance to the alley, one

of the motorcyles comes speeding up from the rear of the escort. The

car in the alleyway starts toward the entrance to the alley.

15AEXT. ALLEYWAY

The car starts hurtling forward at full speed. The front of the

limousine is now visible. A broadside impact seems inevitable.

15BEXT. ALLEY

The motorcycle from the rear reaches the limousine as the kamikaze car

comes hurtling out like a motorized projectile. It hits the motorcycle

-- a totally unexpected obstruction -- and sends the Policeman flying

out of scene. It is sufficient to deflect the kamikaze car from its

deadly aim. The car hits the rear of the limousine, sends it spinning

out of control. The suicide car, also out of control, careens toward

the opposite side of the street. The limousine smashes into a

telephone pole, which brings it to a jolting stop.

16INT. LIMOUSINE

The impact throws Benes to the side. His head hits the door handle

with stunning force, almost knocking him out.
