The Creature from the Black Lagoon (3D)
director:
Jack Arnold
cast:
Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning

The first underwater 3D film, this B-movie classic from Jack Arnold, the king of ’50s monster flicks (It Came From Outer Space, Tarantula, and The Incredible Shrinking Man), has perhaps one of the most recognizable music scores (from a young Henry Mancini) in monster movie history. “A scientific expedition searching for fossils along the Amazon River discovers a prehistoric Gill-Man in the legendary Black Lagoon. The explorers capture the mysterious creature, but it breaks free. The Gill-Man returns to kidnap the lovely Kay, fiancée of one of the expedition, with whom it has fallen in love. The distinctive look and flexibility of what ultimately was still a man in a rubber suit became an instant icon.” (DVD Verdict)
