Fantastic Voyage script
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.


The kamikaze car slams directly into a brick wall. It instantly bursts

into fire, engulfing the Driver. The fitful flames illuminate the

otherwise dark street.


The Chief of the Secret Service jumps out of the limousine, waves to a

sedan to pull up, his shouts lost in the general turmoil. Other Secret

Service Men are helping the dazed Benes out, shielding him. A sedan

pulls up beside the limousine.


The Chief of the Secret Service instantly hustles Benes into the rear.

As he climbs in beside him, and the other Secret Service Men rush to

the other side to get in, there is the sharp crack of a rifle shot. It

shatters the rear window of the sedan, narrowly missing Benes. The

Chief thrusts him onto the floor, sprawls on top of Benes to cover

him, while shouting to the Driver to get going, his words

indistinguishable in the confusion of more rifle shots, which sends

glass and bullets ricocheting through the interior of the sedan.


In the eerie light of the burning car, the sedan can be seen speeding

off, flanked and spearheaded by Motorcycle Police. The Secret Service

Men and those in the sedans are left behind, firing toward the top

floor of a nearby bullding from which the rifle fire came.


Without divulging the nature of the hospital, the unconscious Jan

Benes is seen undergoing a fast and thorough medical probe by

TECHNICIANS and SPECIALISTS, using the latest equipment. Huge X-ray

machines, Centrifuges whirling blood samples, EKGs, Encephalographs,

and a variety of instruments used in cerebral examinations are

featured. After the LAST CREDIT:


It is late. A car is speeding along.


Seated in the rear, Grant looks as if he has just been aroused from

sleep and hustled into the car in a hurry. He is getting into his

shirt, helped by a MAN beside him. There is a smudge of lipstick on

his cheek.
