Attack of the Puppet People (1958), directed by Bert I. Gordon


Lonely doll-maker (John Hoyt) uses his own invention to shrink people he likes to doll-size so that, unlike his wife, they can never leave him.  His latest victims — his pretty secretary (June Kenney) and her salesman fiance (John Agar) — have other plans.  Exemplary B-movie that earns a suspension of disbelief with unexpected moments, humor, and a creepy theme.  Underrated, but with an appreciative cult following.
