Update: An eagle-eyed reader named Mark Hodgson caught a mistake here. This shot is not from Creature, but from Revenge of the Creature. Now that he points it out, it's fairly obvious, but cut me a little slack. It's been ages since I've seen Revenge. The picture is still awesome, but let the record state this is from Revenge of the Creature.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
There are some great shots of Creature From the Black Lagoon, some of which have been featured here, but today’s behind the scenes look is a special one. This comes from a family member of one of the crew and is a bit more obscure than a lot of other Creature shots.
Composition, framing and subject are all top notch. I love the onlookers, which makes this photo feel like something out of a Sea World trip… instead of feeding dolphins some dead fish, these guys are gathered around to look at one of the most unique critters ever photographed.
It really is a fantastic pic for a fantastic movie. Enjoy!
Thanks to Nick Clark (whose great-grandfather is the still photographer in the below show) for sending this one along! Click to embiggen!

Tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic is more for mom than for dad. Sorry, pops, but you get the rest of the day.
