Personal Quote:

As far as I see it Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) was just another movie and it was just another job. I've done many things since then that I am much more proud of. But I've gotten more reaction out of the Creature thing than anything else. Well, I guess that's life!

Trivia:

He is the only actor to play the Gill-man in more than one film. He played him in the underwater scenes of Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). The Creature was played on land by Ben Chapman in the first film, Tom Hennesy in the second and Don Megowan in the third. See more »
