Day #22,427

Walk km 13,916-13,918: running errands

Movie #2274: The Creature From The Black Lagoon (1954, Jack Arnold)

Not much. Main claim to fame is a lot of nice underwater scenes.
Always interesting to see what they thought of women in these 50s horror flix. This one follows the pattern exactly: Julie Adams may play a scientist but once they're on the expedition all she's good for is looking good in a bathing suit and screaming. The men keep telling her where to go so that she'll be safest. It seems that in the 50s women were totally useless airheads.
