The Deadly Mantis (1957)

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Oriskany_(CV-34)I watched The Deadly Mantis on Svengoolie. Very good giant monster movie from the 50s. The female star was Alix Talton, born in Atlanta and a Miss Georgia. They had lots of 1950’s military jets and ships including aircraft carriers 34 and 36 (click on the numbers to get more info on these) . I will give this movie 4.1 out of 5.
