    A few months ago the Castro movie theatre in San Francisco featured all three of the 1950's 'Creature from the Black Lagoon' movies - in true 3-D !!

    After taking off the 3D glasses and cleared the head a bit one could go upstairs and meet two of the original cast members: Julie Adams (the beauty) and Ben Chapman (the 'beast').
    A photo of both of them from the movie set: Beauty and the Beast.

    I snapped some photos with a Leica M3 and Summicron 50/2 at about 1/15th.

    What film did you use, and what did you soup it in?

    Thanks Bob, this was with Tri-X 400 and lazily developed at the local lab.
     
  4. Nice to see these folks are still around. Good ol Tri-X. And nice to see some labs are still around...weren't they supposed to have gone extinct by now? ;)
