Tarantula (1955)

"Professor Gerald Deemer has been working on a special nutrient to help ease a predicted food shortage that is expected to come with the increase in human population. His experiments have been moderately successful but there have been some failures as a result. One day while he is gone two of his colleagues inject themselves with the nutrient with disastrous results and die a few days later. One however goes mad and injects Deemer with the formula. During a struggle, a giant tarantula injected with the formula escapes its cage and grows even larger and starts to attack cattle as well as human beings." -imdb.com

This movie was figured prominently in several Famous Monsters of Filmland issues. I haven't seen this flick in many decades but it is one of the better produced "B" films of it's day. Actually, the makeup was pretty good and the story line had a fairly even flow.

What a great old movie!! So typical of '50's sci-fi/horror. This one, even as cheesey as it is, is really very well acted and the fx of the spider are pretty good too!! You sure don't get this type of movie these days!!

The uncredited jet squadron leader at 1:14:19 is none other than Clint Eastwood (Wikipedia).
