January 2nd, 2009 by Anne Richardson · 1 Comment · 1950's, Oregon DP, Oregon film new definition, Videos

Oregon born cinematographer Ellis Carter was DP on The Incredible Shrinking Man, the world’s most thoughtful combination of philosophizing and special effect photography. Directed by Jack Arnold.

A remake of The Incredible Shrinking Man slated to come out in 2010 has Eddie Murphy as the intrepid spider fighting Scott Carey. In the original story, it was a mysterious (possibly atomic) cloud which causes Carey to shrink.

In the Murphy project, Carey will be a famous Las Vegas magician who is put under a spell that causes him to shrink. He must find a way to reverse the spell before he gets so small that he “disappears.” From the Remake Watch.

As much as Americans love to pooh pooh Hollywood’s McCarthy Era/Cold War filmmaking, The Incredible Shrinking Man will be the second Richard Matheson End of the World warning fable recently remade with a big budget: I Am Legend, first made as The Last Man On Earth (1964), was the first.

Strange but true: Richard Matheson’s screenwriting son, Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure), lives in Oregon.

    For all of you who saw I Am Legend, but haven’t seen The Last Man On Earth, do check out the 1964 version starring Vincent Price. I saw it on the big screen as a child and it is among the most memorable of my filmic memories from that time. That puts it up there with Journey To The Center of the Earth, Captains’ Courageous (yes in the early sixties you could still see Hollywood classics as general release (as opposed to revival) fodder), Jason and the Argonauts, and Mr. Sardonicus.
