Of All The Universal Monsters - The Creature Had The Best Agent

Life magazine photo spread? In color? Are you kidding me?

Creature was always by favorite as a kid.

He really did have the best agent, because he got ranked up there with the classic monsters. Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolf Man and the like, all their movies came out in the '40s, but creature didn't make his splash (pun intended) until a decade after the trendsetters and still came out on top.

I think he really was the last of a mighty monster dynasty because after The Creature, every menace we got in movies after that was either a giant animal or some kind or a human slasher killer.

Wasn't the original is black and white? This color photo spread was one of the things that made LIFE such a cool magazine.

Well my copy is in black and white. A color version might be cool.

He also got to make his movies in a warm location with ladies in bathing suits. That monster's agent knew how to negotiate!
