Title: Attack Of The 50ft Woman (1958)
Why it’s lazy: Oh, honestly... Presumably, the reason for giving this sci-fi B-movie such a dead-in-the-water monicker was the fear that drive-in theatre-goers would be confused by anything even vaguely evocative or creative.
Naturally it does feature a very big woman – made mammoth by alien radiation – but only at the movie’s end, which makes it not just lazy but a bit of a con as well.
Where the name came from: The film’s script was original, but written as a copycat reaction to a spate of size-related B-movies of the time, like The Amazing Colossal Man and The Incredible Shrinking Man.
What they should have called it: Big Bird, Does My Bum Look Big At This Scale?, Supersize Missus.
