Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman (aka: the Astounding Giant Woman)

-- Synopsis:
     She will tear up the whole town until she finds Harry, and then she'll tear up Harry. Heiress Nancy Archer (Allison Hayes) is driving around in the California desert on Route 66 when a satellite crashes to earth and she has an encounter with a giant. As for her husband, Harry (William Hudson), he is too busy paying attention to that cheap tramp Honey Parker (Yvette Vickers).

    Nancy is again abducted by the giant radioactive alien and when she comes back to town

she is now 50' tall and in a cloth bikini no less and ready to go on the attack with Harry as her prime target. Bargain  basement sci-fi, easily one of the worst flicks of the genre which makes this cult/camp B-Movie film so enjoyable.

 * Features:

     Some Jitterbugs scenes in this film with Darlene Lind and Frank Chase. If you're a dance film collector or historian or you like campy films, this film is good, if you're getting it to watch the dancing, pass it up.
