Jon's Random Acts of Geekery is your five days a week destination for old-school geekery!
Jon,Re: "French Poster""Demons Atomiques" (and "Aomishes Duivels") are neat alternate titles!Re: "Mexican lobby card""El Mundo en Peligro" translates as "The World in Danger". Pretty neat too.I don't recall if people knew they were going to see ants when they went into the theater? The "Crawl-and-crush giants clawing up from the Earth's mile-deep catacombs" slogan and the art (with eyes unlike any ants I've ever seen) wouldn't seem to give it away.That photo of one of the two prop ants is a new one to me. Good find!http://www.mmmrecordings.com/films/filmthem/filmthem.html notes that, despite this film's financial success, Warner Brothers only made one more monster film in the 50s, 1957's The Black Scorpion.Thanks!
Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for the info!
