Thing I just learned: Ricou Browning, the diver who wore the suit in Universal's classic 1954 monster movie Creature From the Black Lagoon as well as its sequels, was totally cute! I'd let him drag me to the bottom of a lake and have his webbed way with me any day. Ricou went on to be one of the creative forces behind Flipper in the '60s. See a huge gallery of Creature pictures right here. (This post was inspired by this week's banner, which I really love.).
