Starring Richard Carlson, Julia Adams, Richard Denning, Antonio Moreno, Nestor Paiva, Whit Bissell, Ricou Browning, Ben Chapman. In this riveting action scene, a spear gun is no match for the Creature (famed underwater stuntman Ricou Browning) who would live to fight again in two popular sequels. This film has such wide appeal that even the great Ingmar Bergman is said to have adored it, watching the movie every year on his birthday!
Posters from the picture are equally loved, and creature-feature buffs will not be disappointed with this well preserved one sheet. Richard Carlson and Julia Adams star in this timeless Universal horror tale of an expedition to the dark waters of the Amazon; an expedition which uncovers the existence of a half-human, half-amphibian Gill Man.
Since the initial release of this film, the Creature has become one of the most popular monsters in the Universal stable, rivaling such horror icons as Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolf Man. In the dark and swampy back waters of the Amazon lives one of the most terrifying monsters of all horror films, the human like Gill-Man. Originally shown in 3-D, the eerie atmosphere and lifelike creature who murders members of a scientific expedition and carries off the lovely Julia Adams, had 1950s audiences shrieking and shaking in their seats, and wanting more. The Gill-Man was to reappear shortly in two Universal sequels. The Creature Walks Among Us. Important Added Info: note that this lobby card has been paperbacked. This means the lobby card was backed onto a very light paper backing (acid-free), that keeps the "feel" of the lobby card similar to that of the original lobby card. The advantage of a lightweight backing is that the card still looks and "feels" like a regular lobby card. Prior to paperbacking, the card had paper loss in the top left corner that extended into the "CR" of the title. It had pinholes in the other corners. It had some small tears and smudges around the edges and some smudges and scuffs in the image. Overall, the lobby card was in good condition prior to paper-backing.
