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.

MAN:

Sorry we had to get you up at this

hour, Mr. Grant.

GRANT:

(yawning)

I thought I was on my vacation...

What's it all about?

MAN:

I can't tell you.

GRANT:

Where we going?

MAN:

I can't tell you that either...

Excuse me, Mr. Grant, but you've got

a smudge on your cheek.

He takes out handkerchief, realizing Grant can't see it.

MAN:

May I?

GRANT:

Go ahead.

As Grant finishes buttoning on his shirt, the Man rubs off the

lipstick. Then he throws the handkerchief out of the car.

GRANT:

What'd you do that for?

MAN:

I'm married.

GRANT:

And she said it was indelible...

DISSOLVE TO:

21CEXT. DESERTED WAREHOUSE - PARKING AREA - NIGHT

The car bearing Grant pulls up on an unpaved parking area used for

loading trucks. Nothing stirs. The DRIVER shuts off the engine and

lights.

21DINT. CAR

The Driver and the Man in the rear get out. As Grant starts to follow:

MAN:

You're to stay inside, Mr. Grant.

(answering look)

And wait...

They close their respective doors, leaving Grant alone in the car,

looking out mystified into the darkness.

21EEXT. PARKING AREA

The two men move off together, until they reach what they obviously

know is a proscribed distance from the car. Then they stop and look at

it. For a moment nothing happens, then the ground seemingly starts to

sink with the car.

21FINT. CAR

Grant is startled to see the earth sliding up past the car.

21GLONG SHOT - ELEVATOR SHAFT

It now becomes apparent that the car has been resting on what is

really the top of an elevator shaft. The sides of the shaft now become

visible:
it is seemingly bottomless.

21HINT. CAR - IN SHAFT

Grant responds as the elevator finally comes to a halt.
