Creature from the Black Lagoon


1954       Julia Adams

Universal-International Presents
Creature from the Black Lagoon
Starring
RICHARD CARLSON
JULIA ADAMS
with
RICHARD DENNING, ANTONIO MORENO, NESTOR FAIVA, WHIT RUSSELL



After Carl Mats (ANTONIO MORENO) discovers an unidentified web-fingered skeleton hand along the Amazon River, a scientific expedition goes to recover the rest of the fossil. At the camp site they find the mutilated bodies of Mala's helpers but they are unaware that the attack was by a living counterpart of the fossilized discovery - a half-man, half-fish who dwells there.

Watched constantly by the horrible Gill-Man, Dr. David Reed (RICHARD CARLSON), Dr. Mark Williams (RICHARD DENNING), Kay Lawrence (JULIA ADAMS), Maia and Dr. Edwin Thompson (WHIT BISSELL) enter an eerie lagoon on a riverboat skippered by Lucas (NESTOR PAIVA). David and Mark, in aqua lungs, explore the bottom while Kay goes for a swim.

The Gill-Man, captivated by the girl, follows her and becomes en-snarled in the boat's underwater net. Although he breaks free, his presence is known and David goes below to try and

photograph the creature. Williams, determined to take the Gill-Man, dead or alive, follows and wounds the monster with a spear-gun. Enraged, the Gill-Man retaliates by killing a crew member. Using rotonone, a native poison that produces temporary paralysis, they capture the beast and place hint in a tank.

But the powerful creature escapes, seriously wounding Dr. Thompson. Reed decides they should leave before someone else is killed, but Williams objects. He is overruled, but their departure is blocked by a huge log across the narrow inlet. They try the winch to lift it but the Gill-Man unhooks it. Reed dives to attach it again while Williams keeps the Gill-Man at bay. Wounding the creature again, Williams follows, grapples with the Gill-Man and is drowned. Then the beast grabs Kay and takes her to his catacomb hiding-place. Reed follows and is cornered by the Gill-Man, but Lucas and Maia show up in time to save him with a volley of shots. Mortally wounded, the Gill-Man sinks to the inky black waters of the lagoon depths to die.
