The famous Creature theme music was composed uncredited by Universal staff composer Herman Stein. When the score was recorded by the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Slovakia in 2000, the CD notes included both a photo of Stein and a blow-up of his original Creature manuscript.

As universal approached the 1950's they needed a new monster to follow in the footsteps of Frankensteins monster,Dracula,the wolfman,etc; they came up with the creature from the black lagoon a vicious yet sometimes playful monster,that likes a bathing beauty in the form of very beautiful Julie Adams(who looked very good in her little white bathing suit)the creature is sought by some scientists led by Richard denning and Richard Carlson,and whit bissell(teenage werewolf and teenage Frankenstein fame)along for the ride is sexy Julie Adams and boat captain Antonio Moreno,who likes to scare the alligators with his boat horn.the creature who is being hunted turns to the hunter.the creature was originally shown in 3d,and spawned two sequels and a popular monster model kit by aurora,that i had as a kid.the second creature movie was filmed in Florida,the creature joined the ranks of universal monsters and became a cult classic as well.10 out of 10.
