Pieced-Together Monster Suit: "The Monster of Piedras Blancas" (1959) (video)

The Monster's suit was created by Jack Kevan, who also worked on "Creature From the Black Lagoon" and "The Mole People."  

The feet and lower torso were recycled from the Metaluna Mutants of "This Island Earth" (1955).

The claws were recycled from "The Mole People" (1956).

In 1965, the Monster's head was used in a "Flipper" episode, "Flipper's Monster."

It was directed by Ricou Browning, who played the Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Ricou even wore the suit.

(Here's our REVIEW of the movie.)

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