CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON (Universal, 1954) Don Poster Studios vintage 1980s latex pull-over mask. At some point in the 1970s (future writer/director) Bill Malone re-sculpted the Don Post version of The Creature from the Black Lagoon in an effort to make a more comfortable version of the famous GILL MAN. The original Don Post version was molded off the tight-fitting screen-used original mask. His sculpture, thanks to the Don Post License, became the ubiquitous version of this monster owned by mask fans for almost two decades. This would be the only retail copy of this mask that would have been foamed in the original MASTER MOLD thus rendering the details so "crisp." In fine display condition. From the personal collection of John Fasano.
