Creature from The Black Lagoon is one of those movies that I see every few years to remember what it was that I saw the first time. It keeps me in touch with that part of me that is still willing to suspend disbelief.

Gill-Man comes from Diamond Select Toys, and it includes the figure of actress Julie Adams (as Kay Lawrence) in a bathing suit on the beach. Even without articulation, she’s lovely. And even though they don’t run or jump or swim, these are among my favorite Universal figures of all time.
