Happy birthday Jack Arnold

Happy birthday to director Jack Arnold (1916-1992)!

Arnold's best known film is, of course, the Universal classic The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954).

However, he also directed many other 50's genre classics, including

It Came from Outer Space (1953)

Tarantula (1955)

and The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)

  1. I was fortunate enough, as a kid, to have a theater near me that played old movies as matinees during the summertime. My grandpa took me one afternoon for a double feature of It Came From Outer Space and The Creature From the Black Lagoon...both in 3-D!! One of my favorite memories from childhood!
