    The Mouse That Roared is a great movie, and, I suspect, far better than anything Jack Hill did. Jack Arnold may have made some not so great films also, but I doubt if anything on this list is as bad as The Wasp Woman. [​IMG]

    Jack who?

    Jack Arnold was making low budget genre classics like Creature from the Black Lagoon, It Came from Outer Space and Incredible Shrinking Man at a period when other films of that ilk were absolute rubbish, bordering on unwatchable. Tarantula, which I used to have on super 8 back in the late 70's, was great fun too, excellent effects considering the budget, and a young Clint Eastwood appears as a pilot at the climax preparing to napalm the mutant arachnid. Clint also appears as a technician in Revenge of the Creature.
