The Lady From the Black Lagoon
The Lady From the Black Lagoon Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick By O'Meara, Mallory Book - 2019

Part biography, part research hunt, author Mallory O'Meara delves deep into the life of Milicent Patrick, the true designer of the creature from the film "Creature from the Black Lagoon." A wonderfully engaging read with plenty of side notes from the author, you walk away from this title with a deeper understanding of what women during the early 20th century had to deal with in the entertainment business, as well as how true talent can be wasted by ego and avarice. After completing this wonderful biography, I am certain of one thing: Milicent Patrick deserves every bit of recognition for her contributions to film history as the author proposes.
