Julie Adams Tribute: Creature from the Black Lagoon
March 15 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$13 – $15
The American Cinematheque remembers late actress Julie Adams (1926-2019) with a screening of the classic black-and-white 3-D monnser movie. Adams' son, Mitchell Danton, provides an introduction, moderated by Alan K. Rode. Screening begins at 8:00 PM; a brief tribute reel follows the feature.
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. 1954, Universal, 79 min, USA, Dir: Jack Arnold
Ichthyologist Dr. David Reed (Richard Carlson) leads a team of scientists on an expedition up the Amazon River to hunt for fossils linking prehistoric land and sea mammals. But the murky waters of the region’s Black Lagoon hide more than old bones; an amphibious gill-man rises from the depths to attack the researchers. Like King Kong, the creature is captured, escapes and sets his sights on a beautiful woman - Dr. Reed’s girlfriend, Kay (Julie Adams). The last of the classic Universal movie monsters, CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON was one of the studio’s first 3-D features, and remains among the most memorable horror films of the 1950s.
