See photos of the “Creature” in color from Life Magazine

April 24, 2013

Back in 1953 “Life Magazine” sent a photographer to the set of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, and these awesome pictures never made it to the actual magazine. But they’re fantastic, showing the technicolor vibrancy of the costume and really contextualizing the real world in which the illusion was constructed.

Synopsis: “A scientific expedition searching for fossils along the Amazon River discover a prehistoric Gill-Man in the legendary Black Lagoon. The explorers capture the mysterious creature, but it breaks free. The Gill-Man returns to kidnap the lovely Kay, fiancée of one of the expedition, with whom it has fallen in love.
