Two different stuntmen were used to portray the creature and therefore two different suits were used in the movie. Ricou Browning played the creature when it was in the water and wore a lighter suit. Ben Chapman played the creature when it was out of the water with a darker suit. See more »
The scientists in this movie, presumably geologists and palaeontologists, constantly misuse terms for the geologic time scale. They refer to the Devonian as an "age" and as an "era"; both terms are wrong. The Devonian is a period, which is longer than an age and shorter than an era. Geologic time is divided in units termed, from longest to shortest, Eon > Era > Period > Epoch > Age. The current year is part of the Holocene age of the Quaternary epoch of the Cenozoic era of the Phanerozoic eon. See more »
After finding a claw-like hand, scientists make a return trip to a lagoon off of the Amazon to search for relics. The major discovery is a 'gill' man with an eye for the female form. Julie Adams is most certainly an eye opener. Very interesting underwater and location shots. Run of the mill acting from Richard Carlson, Richard Denning and Whit Bissell. This was scarier seen through the eyes of a very young boy on the third row; but still holds your attention. Is this a classic or what?
