Let us not forget one of the most important things about the Universal Monsters era: The Creature From The Black Lagoon was created by a woman, Milicent Patrick.

Nearly unheard of at the time, ms Patrick is responsible for creating one of the single most recognizable characters, not only in Universal history but in all of film history. She was an incredible talent and she should be honored as such.

Writing Prompt #170

“No one has ever gotten past Lasciva’s Cove. The temptations are impossible for any man, woman, or anything in between to get past. Sirens and succubi alike flank every corner.”
