According to "The Biology of B-Movie Monsters," a scientific
paper by Professor Michael C. LaBarbera (see the Fun List, page TK), The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957; 5:30
+ 9:15 pm) would have to eat his own body weight every day just to survive.
Thanks for spoiling that fantasy, Teach. Luckily, we can still believe in The Creature from the Black Lagoon
(1954; 7:30 pm). Both films by monster movie maven Jack Arnold (The
Creature in 3D!) screen at the Brattle.
