The boys around here call the Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day a paradise. Only, they say, nobody has ever come back to prove it.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

You can't go wrong with a sweet Creature From the Black Lagoon, right? Especially in this most wonderful of seasons! This is an amazing underwater image showing Ricou Browning in the Creature suit, paddling along... as underwater creatures do, of course. These days they'd probably just hang him on wires, blow some air on him and CGI him swimming.

The majestic underwater imagery is what really sets this movie apart and makes the Creature one of my favorite of the Universal Monsters.

Thanks to Steven L. Austin and the Practical Effects Group for the image. Enjoy!

I had to... correct... tomorrow’s behind the scenes pic.
