Attack of the 50ft. Woman

Attack of the 50 Foot Woman is a 1958 American low-budget science fiction feature film directed by Nathan H. Juran (credited as Nathan Hertz) from a screenplay by Mark Hanna. The story concerns the plight of a wealthy heiress whose close encounter with an enormous alien being causes her to grow into a giantess. It starred Allison Hayes, William Hudson and Yvette Vickers.  The film was a take on other movies that had also featured size-changing humans like  The Amazing Colossal Man and The Incredible Shrinking Man, but substituting a woman as the protagonist instead of a man. With its low budget,  the film was made for around $88,000, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman made enough money to prompt discussion of a sequel. According to producer Jacques Marquette, the sequel was to be produced at a higher budget, and in color. A script was also written, though the project never advanced beyond the discussion phase. The film was finally remade in a 1993 HBO movie directed by Christopher Guest.
