Revenge of the Creature
Dir. Jack Arnold (1955).
This entertaining sequel to Creature from the Black Lagoon was also originally released in 3-D and recounts the capture of the Gill Man, who is taken from his Amazonian home to an aquarium and ocean park in Florida. More than the original, Revenge has a beauty-and-the-beast theme to it when the creature escapes and stalks our heroine, Lori Nelson. Look sharp and you'll spot the very first screen appearance of a green young contract player named Clint Eastwood.
