A convict framed by his business partners escapes from incarceration and uses a mad scientist's discovery of a process to miniaturize humans to exact revenge against those who have wronged him. The tiny humans are stunted and lack free will; they are controllable as puppets. Complex story is astonishing for 1936 and holds up very well today. Also, Lionel Barrymore in drag.
