1
00:00:14,600 --> 00:00:19,196
The one emblematic movie monster
of the 1950s emerged - in 3-D, no less -

2
00:00:19,280 --> 00:00:23,717
from Universal Pictures, the studio which
had already led the field for two decades.

3
00:00:23,800 --> 00:00:28,157
Sci-fi expert Bill Warren calls it "one of
the most famous monsters ever created".

4
00:00:28,240 --> 00:00:32,597
Sci-fi authority Bob Burns says it's
among the best monsters ever designed,

5
00:00:32,680 --> 00:00:36,150
and despite its Johnny-come-lately
status, it fits in with Frankenstein,

6
00:00:36,240 --> 00:00:39,789
the wolf man, the mummy and all the rest
of the great movie monsters of old.

7
00:00:39,880 --> 00:00:42,155
The characters in the movie
call him the gill-man.

8
00:00:42,240 --> 00:00:45,391
The people who made the movie
affectionately called him "the beastie".

9
00:00:45,480 --> 00:00:47,994
We call him "the Creature
from the Black Lagoon".

10
00:00:48,080 --> 00:00:51,277
Out of the Devonian Period, when life
crawled out of the sea, it came.

11
00:00:51,360 --> 00:00:55,672
From fishlike thing to mammal, from
mammal to a manlike horror of the sea.

12
00:00:55,760 --> 00:01:00,675
With the heart of a human, filled with
hate, and a manlike instinct to love.

13
00:01:00,760 --> 00:01:03,797
My name is Tom Weaver. Together
we'll go back to that black lagoon

14
00:01:03,880 --> 00:01:06,838
and look behind the scenes at
one of the best monster movies

15
00:01:06,920 --> 00:01:09,036
from the second half of the 20th century.

16
00:01:09,200 --> 00:01:12,317
In the beginning,
there was William Alland.

17
00:01:12,400 --> 00:01:16,757
Alland had the idea for Creature from the
Black Lagoon and produced the picture.

18
00:01:16,840 --> 00:01:18,717
Alland was born in Delmar, Delaware,

19
00:01:18,800 --> 00:01:21,951
and he began his career
as an actor with a Baltimore troupe.

20
00:01:22,040 --> 00:01:23,951
He moved to New York City,

21
00:01:24,040 --> 00:01:28,670
arriving there with a few belongings, $25,
and the ambition to work on Broadway.

22
00:01:28,760 --> 00:01:32,196
He took acting courses, and he acted
at the Henry Street Settlement House,

23
00:01:32,280 --> 00:01:34,191
which is where he met Orson Welles.

24
00:01:34,280 --> 00:01:36,919
This was in the '30s.
Welles was on the verge of forming

25
00:01:37,000 --> 00:01:39,594
his famous
Mercury Players acting company.

26
00:01:39,680 --> 00:01:42,797
Alland worked with the Mercury Players
on stage and on the radio.

27
00:01:42,880 --> 00:01:48,193
He was in the cast of the notorious 1938
War of the Worlds CBS radio broadcast,

28
00:01:48,280 --> 00:01:50,999
which was so realistic
it caused a panic among listeners,

29
00:01:51,080 --> 00:01:56,473
and Welles and Alland nearly went to jail.
They continued to associate for years.

30
00:01:56,560 --> 00:01:59,950
Alland acted in some of Welles' movies,
including Citizen Kane.

31
00:02:00,040 --> 00:02:04,158
Alland played the reporter who goes
through the whole movie in shadow,

32
00:02:04,240 --> 00:02:08,756
trying to find out what Charles Foster
Kane's dying word, "Rosebud", meant.

33
00:02:08,840 --> 00:02:13,994
I'll interrupt myself several times as I try
to tell you abo
