The original pic, directed by Richard Fleischer, starred Stephan Boyd, Edmond O’Brien and Raquel Welch and centered on a crewed submarine shrunken to microscopic size and injected into a scientist’s blood stream in order to save him. It was nominated for five Oscars and won for Special Visual Effects and Art Direction.
