1As far as I see it Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) was just another movie and it was just another job. I've done many things since then that I am much more proud of. But I've gotten more reaction out of the Creature thing than anything else. Well, I guess that's life!
1He directed the underwater sequences of both Thunderball (1965) and its remake Never Say Never Again (1983).
2With the death of Tom Hennesy on May 23, 2011, he is the last surviving actor to have played a classic Universal Monster. He played the Gill-man in Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). Hennesy played the same character in the second film.
3He is the only actor to play the Gill-man in more than one film. He played him in the underwater scenes of Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Revenge of the Creature (1955) and The Creature Walks Among Us (1956). The Creature was played on land by Ben Chapman in the first film, Tom Hennesy in the second and Don Megowan in the third.
4Interviewed in Tom Weaver's book "They Fought in the Creature Features" (McFarland & Co., 1995).
