The frogwoman and the gill man

[2nd post for today]

Time for some scenes from a movie that is more than 65 years old!

A “gill man” gets captured and placed into a big pool for study and to entertain the visitors of the aqua park.

A woman and a man use some high end scuba gear (for that time) to “train” him.

Of course the gil man gets interested in her and doesn’t want to be chained to the bottom of the pool 😉

And here is the video:

Posted it on Youtube, but it was blocked right away….

 

These full face scuba masks with radio must have been very high end back in 1955.

But I haven’t seen these in other movies of the time. I guess they had some problems or were very expensive.

The scenes are very interesting even I wish the creature would have wrestled a little longer with her….perhaps even grabing for her scuba mask or air hose.

However it was good to have some scuba peril in this one. Surely one of the earliest scenes like that in (movie-) history.

Wanna know from which movie this is?

What do you think of that scenes?

  1. That scuba gear was a full face mask rig, made by Scott; they no longer make scuba mask systems like this; but they still make a very similar unit for fire fighters.
