EARTH VS. THE SPIDER - Albert Glasser - "Waking The Spider" (1958)

Spiders, spiders & more spiders!! This 1958 Bert I. Gordon classic had music composed by Albert Glasser, who did the music for a host of giant Monster movies like "Giant From The Unknown," "The Cyclops," "Amazing Colossal Man" & "War Of The Colossal Beast." I guess if you were making a movie about something 'Giant', then Al was the guy to call for the music! In this film, there's this one scene where the band is practicing & the Spider awakes, as you'll hear as all hell breaks loose. Ricky Nelson's buddy Wally, on the "Ozzie & Harriet" show played by Skip Young, is Sam, the bass playing leader of the band. It's a swinging little tune!

I like the scene where the teenybopper can't flee the giant spider because her poodle skirt is stuck in the car door --
