Today - Dec. 12:

"The Wolf Man" was released in 1941.  (74 years ago, this film has aged very well.)

"The Phantom of the Opera" was released in 1943.  (72 year ago, just as bad today as it was back then - in my opinion.)

Today. Dec. 14:

Dec. 14, 1955 "Tarantula" released.

Might have seen this during Christmas vacation but certainly didn't see it in my small town any later than the summer of 1956. The special effects may seem laughable to audiences today, but oh, what a thrill it was for nine-year-old me to see this as a brand new movie with a bunch of fellow screaming kids during a Saturday matinee.

Sixty years ago and I still remember when I first saw this movie.  (I might have been wearing the same shirt that I have on in my avatar.)

That was 25 well spent!

I wouldn't call them laughable. It's hardly an AIP (or a Miner Bros.) movie. At least they used a real spider, instead of a jerky puppet on strings! ;D
