Classic Film Friday - The Incredible Shrinking Man

 This 1957 classic asks, "what would you do if a nuclear radiation cloud were to make you smaller and smaller by the day?" or at least shows you how one man deals with it. We were in the middle of the Cold War, and we really didn't know what radiation could (or couldn't) do. Watch as a 6 foot man struggles with becoming a 3 foot munchkin and then beyond that when something like a cat or a spider become a struggle for life. It is a nuclear scare movie but it is a pretty good for its time.
