Did You Know?


Tom made roaring and growling noises throughout the filming of Revenge Of The Creature while playing the Gill Man. Producers liked the sound so much they left it in the film instead of using animal sound effects. It is believed his noises were also dubbed into the final film in the trilogy, The Creature Walks Among us. See more »
