    Description

    Tarantula (Universal International, 1955). Three Sheet (41.5" X 80").
    This flesh-crawling three sheet spotlights the towering arachnid of the 1955 thriller starring John Agar, Mara Corday, and Leo Carroll. Tarantula was released shortly after the success of another giant bug movie, Them, which featured enormous ants. Fans have held this film in high regard, mainly because of its strong opening and big finish, and particularly because of its impressive special effects. A live spider was used in filming, with air jets encouraging it which way to move over a miniature landscape. Even an uncredited Clint Eastwood shows up toward the end as a jet squadron leader attacking the giant eight-legged menace. Artist Reynold Brown captures the action superbly on the three sheet presented here, which has been restored on linen. Touchup has been applied to pinholes in the corners and borders, and some light overall wrinkling can be noted. Very Fine on Linen.
