The horrors continue! "Beginning of the End" released 1957

First, it was a giant gila monster, then giant killer shrews and now, giant killer grasshoppers.  Actually, "Beginning of the End", which premiered on June 28, 1957, came about 2 years before the other two.

Atomic testing has turned grasshoppers into gigantic beasts and they are closing in on Chicago.  This Bert I. Gordon "classic" starred a predictably stoic Peter Graves.  At least until he picks up an automatic rifle.

One of the best lines:  "You can't drop an atom bomb on Chicago!"
