Ben Chapman relaxes between takes on the set of Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954, dir. Jack Arnold) (via Hollywood Horror: Gothic to Cosmic)

“The reason they didn’t credit me in the movie, and this is crazy, is the studio wanted to give the impression, the illusion, that it was a real creature. If you see the original Frankenstein, Boris [Karloff] doesn’t get credit. It’s a question mark in the credit. I looked at the studio and asked if they thought the people were that stupid, and they said, ‘You’d be surprised what people believe’”
