    Does anyone know how many Creature movies were made? I remember the original, and also THE CREATURE WALKS AMONG US. But I seem to remember a third, but not the title.

    ‘Revenge of the Creature’ was the sequel…then came ‘The Creature Walks Among Us.’

    I remember seeing “the Creature From The Black Lagoon” in a small theater in NYC when I was 10 years old on a double bill with “This Island Earth”. The “Creature” film was in 3D and I wore the two toned glasses they handed out then. It was pretty goofy and nothing like the 3D films are today. I remember thinking that Julie Adams was very beautiful.

    Trivia note: The Gillman met Abbot & Costello in a Colgate Comedy Hour television show in 1953 where they revamped some of their routines from the “Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein” 1948 film and then Costello meets the Creature much to the live audience’s delight.
