It's in Technicolor. sHki - MATURE FROM r Cnlteml plct iuced kj William Au Whll BlMrll, Bm ChMinii tonlo Moreno has just made an exciting discovery, exciting to him, that is a fossilized hand with webbed claws. It belongs to a species completely unknown to science. In double-quick time, Moreno has enlisted the help of an ex ppilition to hunt for the rest of the skeleton, and when they return to his camp site they discover the bodies of his two native helpers, brutally mangled. Science, however, can't be discouraged, and they stick to their digging. No luck. Finally scientist Richard Carlson suggests to scientists Richard Denning, who heads the group; Julia Adams, Whit Bis- sell and Moreno that they explore the waters of a nearby lagoon. At this point "Creature From the Black Lagoon," a Universal product made in 3 D, begins to shift much of its action under for the submarine episodes ara easily the most entertaining in a prettv foolishly devised story about the last surviving Gill-Man, an amphibious creature of great strength, who resents this invasion of his watery home. Under-Water chases Ingeniously photographed and MCI la- I given a .w illusion 01 neptn, ii"Di, 12 1 tne under-water chases be tween IJIlun aim uwiuu in aqua-lungs and the slithery Gill-Man provide some fun and pleasant excitement, but you continually have to ignore the pedestrian workings of the plot and its obvious methods insetting up a bit of suspense. When the expedition's small schooner first anchors, for example, in the lagoon, before the mem hers know whether it holds danger, Miss Adams dives overboard for a long swim. Fortunately for her, the 'Treat ore," who is lurking in is immediately fascinated by the pretty swimmer and doesn't try to harm her. Which indicates a powerful amount of imagination on the part of the scriptwriters, for it is reasonable to assume that the Gill-Man would be smitten hv a GUI-Girl, not a girl scientist. However, there'! little point in subjecting the story to any sober kind of examination. The boys at Universal were on a fanciful binge, putting on an enjoyable show in the water, something less in dry-dock.
