My taste in women....

sorry if that sounds 'sexist'... I only mean that we all see beauty differently.

I re-watched "Creature From The Black Lagoon" last night which stars "Julie Adams". I never thought of Julie as 'beautiful' back then (note: I was a mere child when I first saw this movie). Even seeing her in later roles on TV I never looked at her and thought 'beautiful'. But last night I was hit with the thunderbolt. laughing smiley Julie was gorgeous.

BTW....as for the movie - I can see why this is such a classic... for that era it was very well made. The plot is a little thin but it's a 'scary' movie so I mean... how much plot does a scary movie need? Monster? Check Lovely lady in distress? Check Handsome hero? Check. So I am ok with the plot... and the cinematography I think amazing... era considered.

Reading about the film on IMDB in the trivia section I discovered that this was one of Benecio Del Toro's favorite films... he watched it yearly. Benecio was quoted as saying he always hoped for a sequel in which the poor 'monster' would capture Julie's heart and they'd team up. laughing smiley Now I had never thought of that.... similar to King Kong and Ann Darrow.... but I should have!! How the hell did I miss that until last night?

Tonight I think I'm going for "The Blob" which stars, as you know, Steve McQueen. I do not remember this movie, at all.... but yes, saw it as a kid.
