“Director Jack Arnold hits the right note with Creature from the Black Lagoon, taking an essentially throwaway plot (a group of scientists searching for a “missing link” in a hidden lagoon) and creates a tension-filled horror classic, diving into the mythical union between monster and mate. Arguably the last great Universal monster film until Spielberg’s similarly themed Jaws, Arnold’s Gill Man is akin to King Kong…as its existence is tragically brought to an end by his lust, in this case for swimming beauty Julie Adams. The underwater scenes, co-directed by TV’s Flipper creator and Gill Man suit-wearer Ricou Browning) are the best ever filmed. Browning actually held his breath throughout all the underwater scenes as his costume could not hold an oxygen tank. The overall production is a marvel of tension and atmosphere, especially when seen in its original 3D format.” (The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide)
