Scientist Jan Benes, who knows the secret to keeping soldiers shrunken for an indefinite period, escapes from behind the Iron Curtain with the help of CIA agent Grant. While being transferred, their motorcade is attacked. Benes strikes his head, causing a blood clot to form in his brain. Grant is ordered to accompany a group of scientists as they are miniaturized. The crew has one hour to get in Benes’s brain, remove the clot and get out.
This sci-fi adventure is unlike all that came before it. A great visual movie takes your mind off of the script. The special effects will keep you more than interested. A vanilla coke and large popcorn doesn’t last long during this adventure. A precision medical team is reduced to microscopic size to journey through a dying man’s blood stream to repair brain damage.
The special effects take top billing, but some pretty fine stars are featured: Donald Pleasence, Arthur O’Connell, Edmond O’Brien, Arthur Kennedy, Stephen Boyd and a vivacious Raquel Welch, with the obligatory strip down to wet suit scene. Look for a small role played by James Brolin.
