@Play: Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)

The Gill Man does the old soft shoe for the crew's entertainment.
The fact that the actor wearing the Creature suit couldn't see out of it very well led to a few mishaps.  Here, Julie Adams receives first aid while director Jack Arnold, leading man Richard Carlson and an apologetic Gill Man look on.
The Gill Man pitches in by swabbing the deck...
...then steals a kiss from an unsuspecting (but apparently unresisting) stunt woman.
The Creature (The Gill Man) was played by Ben Chapman on land...
 ...and by Ricou Browning in water.
