Description

World of Giants: The Complete Series (ClassicFlix Rare TV) on DVD

Synopsis:

Now available for the first time on Blu-ray from ClassicFlix—the fantastic science fiction-espionage TV series World of Giants!

During a secret mission behind the Iron Curtain, a freak accident involving an exploding rocket shrinks American agent Mel Hunter (Marshall Thompson, Daktari) to the size of six inches. But instead of ending his career, it turns out to be to his, and “The Bureau’s”, advantage as the pocket-sized operative is able to infiltrate areas closed off to the average G-man. Hunter is aided by his full-sized partner Agent Bill Winters (Arthur Franz, The Sniper), gal Friday Miss Brown (Marcia Henderson, The Glass Web) and Bureau Commissioner Hall (John Gallaudet, Perry Mason).

Touting a $4,000,000 budget, CBS tapped prolific production company Ziv TV to produce World of Giants (WOG) which started shooting in early 1958—with an expected fall network debut. Production was later halted when CBS was unable to obtain sponsorship for WOG causing the network to delay the series premiere a full year. But when shooting wrapped in 1959, World of Giants was still without a sponsor and CBS scrapped the idea of network distribution entirely which allowed WOG to go into first-run syndication starting in 1961.

WOG’s high production values allowed Ziv to hire such luminary sci-fi directors as Nathan Juran (20 Million Miles to Earth), Jack Arnold (Creature from the Black Lagoon) and Byron Haskin (The War of the Worlds), as well as involve famed production designer and art director Robert Kinoshita—known for his creation of iconic sci-fi robots such as “Robby the Robot” (Forbidden Planet) as well as for art direction on TV series’ such as Lost in Space.

World of Giants - The Complete Series includes all 13 episodes produced by Ziv and features guest stars including Peggie Castle, Gavin MacLeod, Tom Brown, Berry Kroeger, Bill Walker, Pamela Duncan, Ziva Rodann, Douglas Dick, Maria Palmer, Narda Onyx, Edgar Barrier, Nestor Paiva, Gregg Palmer and Allison Hayes.
