A group of scientists drug the lonely creature, who becomes enamored with the head scientists fiancee and assistant, Kay Lawrence. It then breaks free to wreak havoc on the team, kidnaps the bathing beauty, and escapes into the Amazon.

The jungle turns from exotic to treacherous when the creature blocks their passage and strands them in the wilds.

Question: If you were looking for similar books in the genre, what would you suggest as a definitive collectors' guide? Or how about a not-so-definitive collectors' guide? Does such a thing even exist? Good question but I have to say - I'm pretty much winging this mother. I just go by how books are priced on eBay, Amazon, and the AbeBooks sites. Wow, this is really cool. Thanks for blogging about it :.

The film premiered in Detroit on February 12 and was released on a regional basis, opening on various dates. Creature from the Black Lagoon was filmed in 3D and originally projected by the polarized light method. The audience wore viewers with gray polarizing filters, similar to the viewers most commonly used today. Because the brief s 3D film fad had peaked in mid and was fading fast in early , many audiences actually saw the film "flat", in 2D. Typically, the film was shown in 3D in large downtown theaters and flat in smaller neighborhood theaters. In Creature from the Black Lagoon was re-released to theaters in the inferior red-and-blue-glasses anaglyph 3D format, which was also used for a home video release on Beta and VHS videocassettes.
