Village of the Giants (1965)

Nomination Year: 1994
SYNOPSIS:  A small town boy genius (Ron Howard) invents a goop that causes things to grow to gigantic size. A gang of juvenile delinquents takes some, and grows to huge proportions. They dance around a lot, and make a benign nuisance of themselves.

This is one of several films loosely based on H.G. Wells' story "Food of the Gods."


Ronnie's Such a Gas
Ronnie Howard comes by on his bicycle and shrinks the giants with a gaseous substance he invented. They wander off in defeat, only to meet up with a troupe of MIDGETS?!
