Above the end of the right inlane is a funnel-like structure called the Whirlpool that can be accessed through the left ramp when a diverter activates during certain modes.
Each apron has a pair of 3-D glasses, as the film is in 3-D. Lamps for the word FILM are present in the dead space behind the flippers.
The plunger is a spring-loaded mechanism that launches the ball up a straight shaft that ends with a dropdown at the PAID bumper rollovers shortly after a left curve.
Strong shots will take the ball down the one-way exit lane along the left half of the table. There are two types of skill shots: Admission and Romance.
The goal of this table is to help an individual prepare for a drive-thru theater showing of the film Creature of the Black Lagoon as part of a date night with his girlfriend through four missions.
Each of the four missions are represented by one letter in the word FILM. There is no start procedure for missions and the player can work on multiple missions at once, and cannot lose progress on any of them until the game is over or the wizard mode is started.
Missions must be completed successfully to progress to the wizard mode and cannot be repeated once they are beaten until the wizard mode begins.
If the player completes the Concessions mission listed below, they can use the snack bar to earn random rewards that allow the player to skip any or all of the other three missions to begin the wizard mode faster.
Once all four missions are completed, the wizard mode, Rescue the Girl , will be available to start by shooting either side lane to lock one ball.
This is a wizard mode where the player re-enacts the climax of the Creature from the Black Lagoon film being shown and helps the scientist Dr.
David Reed save his girlfriend, Kay Lawrence, from the Gill-Man at the dangerous Black Lagoon, and comprises of a final 2-ball multiball mission, with the other ball being launched into play manually with the plunger.
Carl reunites with his friend and former student, ichthyologist Dr. David Reed. David works at an aquarium in California , but more recently he has been a guest at Carl's institute in Brazil to study lungfish.
David persuades his boss, the financially minded Dr. Mark Williams, to fund a return expedition to the Amazon to look for the remainder of the skeleton.
Soon after Carl leaves camp, a piscine amphibious humanoid , a living member of the same species from which the fossil originated, becomes curious about the expedition's camp.
When its sudden appearance frightens the assistants, they panic and attack, and in response, the enraged Creature kills them both.
The group goes aboard the tramp steamer Rita , captained by crusty Lucas. Edwin Thompson. When they arrive at the camp, they discover Carl's assistants have been killed while he was away.
Lucas suggests it was likely done by a jaguar , but the others are unsure. A further excavation of the area where Carl found the fossil turns up nothing.
Mark is ready to give up the search, but David suggests that perhaps thousands of years ago the part of the embankment containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water and was washed downriver, broken up by the current.
Carl says the tributary empties into a lagoon. Lucas calls it the "Black Lagoon", a paradise from which no one has ever returned.
The scientists decide to risk it, unaware that the amphibious "Gill-man" that killed Carl's assistants has been watching them. Taking notice of the beautiful Kay, the creature follows the Rita all the way downriver to the Black Lagoon.
Once the expedition arrives, David and Mark go diving to collect rock samples from the lagoon floor. After they return, Kay goes swimming and is stalked underwater by the Gill-man, who then gets briefly caught in one of the ship's drag lines.
Although it escapes, the Creature leaves a claw behind in the net, revealing its existence. Subsequent encounters with the Gill-man claim the lives of Lucas's crew members, before the Creature is captured and locked in a cage aboard the Rita.
It escapes during the night, attacking Edwin, who was guarding it. Kay smashes the Creature with a lantern, driving it off, but Edwin is severely injured.
Following this incident, David decides they should return to civilization. Mark, obsessed with capturing or killing the Creature, objects.
As the Rita tries to leave, they find the Gill-man has blocked the lagoon's entrance with fallen logs.
While the others attempt to remove the logs, Mark is mauled to death while trying to capture the Creature single-handed under water.
The Gill-man then abducts Kay and takes her to its cavern lair. David, Lucas and Carl chase after the Creature and Kay is ultimately rescued.
The Creature is riddled with bullets before retreating to the lagoon, where its body sinks into the watery depths. Producer William Alland was attending a dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane in which he played the reporter Thompson when Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half-fish, half-human creatures in the Amazon River.
Alland wrote story notes titled "The Sea Monster" 10 years later, using Beauty and the Beast as inspiration. Following the success of the 3D film House of Wax in , Jack Arnold was hired to direct the film in the same format.
The designer of the approved Gill-man was Disney animator Milicent Patrick , though her role was deliberately downplayed by make-up artist Bud Westmore , who for half a century received sole credit for the creature's conception.
Ben Chapman portrayed the Gill-man for the majority of the scenes shot at Universal City, California. Many of the on-water scenes were filmed at Rice Creek near Palatka, Florida.
The costume made sitting impossible for Chapman for the 14 hours of each day that he wore it and it overheated easily. Due to these difficulties, Chapman often stayed in the studio's back-lot lake, frequently requesting to be hosed down.
He also could not see very well while wearing the headpiece, which caused him to scrape Julie Adams' head against the wall when carrying her in the grotto scenes.
Ricou Browning played the Gill-man in the underwater shots, which were filmed by the second unit in Wakulla Springs , Florida.

The film was novelized in , in paperback under the pseudonym of "Carl Dreadstone", as part of a short-lived series of books based on the classic Universal horror films.
The book was introduced by Ramsey Campbell, but not written by him. The novel offers a completely different Gill-man, who in this version of the story is gigantic, almost as big as the Rita herself, weighing in at 30 tons.
It is both coldblooded and warmblooded, is a hermaphrodite, and also possesses a long whip-like tail.
The gigantic creature is dubbed "AA," for "Advanced Amphibian," by the expedition team members. After slaying most of the team members, destroying a Sikorsky helicopter, and kidnapping Kay more than once, the creature is killed by the crew of a US Navy torpedo boat.
The novel also differs greatly with respect to the human characters. Only David Reed and Kay Lawrence remain the same. Mark Williams is a German named "Bruno Gebhardt," and dies not as a result from drowning but by the monster falling on him.
Thompson and Dr. Maia both die grisly deaths, whereas in the movie they survive; Maia is eaten by the monster, and Thompson is impaled on a long tree branch flung at him by the creature like a spear in an apparent nod to a deleted scene from Revenge of the Creature wherein the Gill-man killed a guard in this fashion.
In John Landis was keen on getting Arnold to direct a remake of the film, and Nigel Kneale was commissioned to write a screenplay. Kneale completed the script, which involved a pair of creatures, one destructive and the other calm and sensitive, being persecuted by the US Navy.
A decision to make the film in 3-D led to the film being cancelled by producers at Universal, both for budgetary concerns and to avoid a clash with another 3-D film they had in production, Jaws 3-D.
Jackson chose King Kong because seeing it on television when he was nine years old had inspired him to become a filmmaker.
Ross, one of the original's writers. He told The Hollywood Reporter , "The story my father wrote embodies the clash between primitive men and civilized men, and that obviously makes it a fertile area for re-examination.
Because of his commitments to numerous other projects, Universal was forced to go without del Toro as director, and hired Tedi Sarafian credited on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines to write a script in March In October , Breck Eisner signed on as director.
Eisner was inspired to shoot on location by Fitzcarraldo , and the boat set has been built. Use the HTML below. You must be a registered user to use the IMDb rating plugin.
