creaky old curiosity

This obscure British made item is a far as I can tell the first film about the loch ness monster. The year this film was made, was when the loch ness monster first began to get international notoriety. The first half deals with the comical attempts of a reporter to get the scoop on the monster from the local scientist who distrusts the press. The reporter also romances the scientists niece. The second half deals more with the search for the monster. There is a credit for underwater photography, but most of the underwater sequences look as though they were shot in a dry tank. The monster itself is played by an iguana. In one sequence the monster eats a diver. The locals also blame the monster for several strange deaths. As far I know, the only threatening encounter with the monster was the one told by Saint Columbia. Some names in credits include David Lean (editor) and Charles Bennet (writer) who wrote many scripts for Hitchcock and later Irwin Allen.
