1950's " CREATURE from the BLACK LAGOON " This is an old and original 1950's 15 HEAD prop from Universal Studios. Made from Industrial foam with true life painted latex covering.
The studios back then placed movie props for promotional purposes at or near theater entrances, ticket booths or concession areas. This prop is from the Los Angeles area. I've had it since 1974.
There used to be a small hole in the wall T. Movie Store on Sunset Blvd. That I used to go to (actually looking for Lost in Space / Time Tunnel things) and this came from that store. I bought this, a couple posters and some large MONKEES glass photo slides. This kind of stuff was really at the time pretty much throw away items as not many people were interested.
My dad worked at Burbank Warner studios, and I remember seeing a lot of things being discarded. I never really thought any of that would be worth much.
This unfortunately is all I have left other than a few posters and 35mm slides. It's old, large, shows wear (please see pics) but still looks very cool! Weight: 1 Lb 14 Oz.
