REVENGE OF THE CREATURE - Lava/Stein - "Lobster House Jam" (1955)

Every once in a while, you gotta throw in a classic, and they don't get much classier that the 1955 Universal production, "Revenge Of The Creature." Here's a great scene, coming directly from "The Lobster House," and hold on, cause the joint is jumpin'! John & Lori are getting all hot and bothered when the Creature makes an untimely party-crashing appearance, whisks her away and makes a 3 point dive into the water with her in tow! The music's by Bill Lava, who had a stunning musical career in cartoons & movies dating back to the 30's, and still yet, another Stein, Herman this time, who helped compose music for "Tarantula," "This Island Earth," "The Incredible Shrinking Man," "The Monolith Monsters," and a slew of other features. These two guys resumes combined will make your head spin like a satellite knocked out of orbit! Incredible!!
Here's a bonus gratuitous shot of a very young and uncredited Clint Eastwood from an earlier scene. Clint also appeared in "Tarantula." So there you have it, trombones, giant spiders and more!!

Ben Chapman, who played the Creature while on land, died a few days ago.
