"Tarantula" Movie Coloring Contest - 1955
This newspaper coloring contest appeared in a Connecticut newspaper on December 05, 1955. The 10 winners received a pair of guest tickets to see the movie "Tarantula". A review of the movie from Leonard Maltin's Movie and Video Guide - Tarantula (1955) *** Director: Jack Arnold. Starring John Agar, Mara Corday, Leo G. Carroll, Nestor Paiva, Ross Elliott, Eddie Parker. Scientist Carroll's new growth formula works a little too well, and pretty soon there's a humongous spider chewing up the countryside. One of the best giant-insect films, with fast pacing, convincing special effects, and interesting subplot detailing formula's effect on humans. That's Clint Eastwood as the jet squadron leader in the final sequence.
