Interesting documentary about a classic Science Fiction Horror film.
This is a documentary about the classic science fiction horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon which was made in 1954. Fans of the original film will find it pretty fascinating. It came as a special feature on the DVD version. This documentary interviews lead actress Julie (Julia) Adams, and both actors that played the creature (in water and out) and more. It also has an appearance by Black Lagoon fan and screenwriter David J. Schow (the screenwriter behind "The Crow"). He was too young to work on this film, but he brings some good insight into the writing and making of it.
It covers everything from the actors being cast, early concept drawings and how the foam creature functioned on the actor. The only downside is that it only runs for about forty minutes, so while it covers everything it sort of skims over areas you wished it went deeper into - pardon the pun. I mainly wish it had spent more time talking about the score which was composed by legendary composer Henry Mancini. In the last one third of the show, it also talks about the two sequels including an interview with Lori Nelson, the focus of the amorous creature in the second film.
