    Description

    Tarantula (Universal, 1955). Lobby Cards (3) (11" X 14"). One of the prime examples of science-gone-mad monsters from the 50s, "Tarantula" featured one of the best giant spiders seen on screen until "The Return of the King." Experiments with new ways of growing food go amuck in the desert. A tarantula injected with a secret formula escapes and terrorizes a small town. John Agar and Mara Corday join the townspeople to fight it, but it's Clint Eastwood as the leader of an Air Force squadron that finally brings the giant spider down! These lobby cards have light wrinkles, very light edge wear, and an Australian censor sticker on each card. Nice shots of Agar, Corday and Leo G. Carroll, and a magnificent shot of the title monster. Very Fine.
