THE DEADLY MANTIS, 1957. Original British Quad (30 x 40” / 98 x 131 cm) Folded Movie Poster starring Craig Stevens, Alix Talton, William Hopper and Florenz Ames. Directed by Nathan Juran and produced by William Alland. Staying true to the 1950’s giant monster movie theme, The Deadly Mantis features a 200-foot-long praying mantis who wreaks havoc on New York City after being released from the Artic by a volcanic blast.
To create the special effects of the film, a model of the mantis was built out papier-maché. It measured a whopping 200-feet by 40-feet, had a 150 foot wingspan, and was fitted with a hydraulic system
