The Creature Shrinks in "The Creature Walks Among Us" (Universal-International, 1956) (video)

In the "Creature" movies, two actors played the Creature.

A larger actor played him on land, while lithe swimmer Ricou Browning performed the underwater scenes.

For the surgically-altered monster in "The Creature Walks Among Us"...

...a much bulkier padded suit was made, and covered with baggy clothing.

Underwater, the whole get-up clung to Ricou Browning's much smaller frame.

Not only did this make the Creature look smaller, but the head tended to fill up with air.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
