The Beauty of the Black Lagoon
On Friday, we had the opportunity to meet and obtain autographs from the many special guests of Monster Bash. At the top of our list was Julie Adams, who starred in "The Creature from the Black Lagoon," in addition to an number of high profile films and TV programs. She was wonderful to talk to, and she delighted Andy when she said, "How about if I just write, "Love, Julia"?" (Andy also had Ricou Browning sign the same poster/lobby card.) I purchased a copy of her book, "The Lucky Southern Star: Reflections From the Black Lagoon," which she told me she wrote out completely in her own hand. It's a lovely book, which is really no surprise.
