Artie Pinsetter (Lou Costello) is a junk collector and amateur inventor who lives in the desert town of Candy Rock. Artie's finacée, Emmy Lou Raven (Dorothy Provine) happens upon magical waters of Dinosaur Springs and is changed into a thirty-foot giantess. While nervously explaining to her Uncle that she has gotten "big" (pregnant to her Uncle), he insists that they be married immediately. Artie eventually restores her to normal size.
The 30 Foot Bride of Candy Rock was filmed from December 3 through December 22, 1958 and is the only film that Lou Costello starred in without his longtime partner, Bud Abbott. It is based on an original screenplay entitled The Secret Bride of Candy Rock Mountain.
This film was not released until August 1959, five months after Costello died of a heart attack.
