“The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock” Review
The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock (1959) | Amazon
Directed by Sidney Miller. With Lou Costello, Dorothy Provine, Gale Gordon, Jimmy Conlin. In one of his rare performances without Bud Abbott, Lou Costello plays a rubbish collector and inventor. When radiation in a nearby cave turns his girlfriend into a giantess, antics ensure as he tries to shrink her using one of his inventions.
Trick photography with some left over props from a dozen other films, all filmed on the back lot of some abandoned forest. I mock it, but the last 20 minutes of this film are some of the most surreal content I’ve seen in a film. It’s obvious that the entire thing was written with no intent to tell a full story, but I do get a kick out of old comedy science fiction.Favorite This!
