I loved this movie. In the 70\'s, my formative years, a local station was playing all the greats. Frankenstein, Dracula, etc... but when I saw The Gill Man, I was truly creeped out. And, I fell hard for Julie Adams. But, because the Gill Man did too, I knew he couldn\'t be all bad. About 15 years ago a local museum played a print of the film and I got to see it for the first time in a theater setting not just the small screen. It was even creepier than I remembered. Ben Chapman, you captured something classic here, and you are dearly appreciated for the sleepless nights.

Ben

It was an absolute pleasure to befriend you while you were here.
I will never forget your warm, sense of humor and kindness.

You are missed and quite honestly the Universal Monsters franchise may never be the same.

Much Aloha

Actor Gene Barry was best known for his tv-work(\"Bat Masterson\", \"Burke\'s Law\"), but he did encounter some movie-monsters along the way(THE WAR OF THE WORLDS & its remake). During a phone interview with our website, he mentioned that he very much respected Ben Chapman\'s achievement in creating some semi-human emotions under all that Creature-makeup.

Well Happy Ben Chapman who would have been 89 today good bless you mate. Ben and I had a short but friendly how would you say pen pal email ping pong between us before he passed away on the 21st February 2008. We both loved the ocean and I being a boardrider for over 43 years we had a few fun stories about surf in Australia and Hawaii. I was just a fan but knowing Ben he always had time for the film and his fans. Here is an extract which I am sure everyone has read and knows about. RIP BEN!!

I'm a fan of the Creature myself, but not as big a fan as my mother. I actually was looking to order a T-Shirt for my mother who is even a bigger fan. In fact, she's not just a creature fan - she's more of a Ben Chapman fan. She said she had a big crush on him when the movies came out and she just loved hte way he moved under water. So I think I've heard her speak as much or more about Mr. Chapman as she does the Creature. She's a big collector of Creature paraphernalia as well. RIP Mr. Chapman, I wish you were still around to make us smile!

I met Ben at the waikiki theater in the late 1980's. He was standing in front of the theater and I overheard someone say who he was, so I went over and said Hi. Should have got a picture but nice meeting him all the same. Great movie.

I'm so upset that the remake did not come out last year. I was also saddened and surprised to read that the remake of the wolfman didn't bring in what you all wanted. I loved it and have watched it like 15 times already and will continue to watch it at least once a year. I was and still am a big fan of the gillman and I have his poster up at work currently and it's so surprising the interest from the younger generation after i let them watch my collection of the gillman. Best of luck! Your fan forever and ever. Upon my return from my deployment next year I'll be getting the full size statue of him I found from Horror Dome for 3,400.00.

I lived in Hawaii in the '70s and had no idea my favorite Universal monster did, too. Thank you for years of wonderful memories and see you in that big Black Lagoon in the sky, Mr. Chapman!

What a nice site. This was a favorite from my youth. Ben did a wonderful job playing the creature with "humanity" and I would have swam halfway around the world for Julie. Built the old Aurora plastic model creature and have shown the movies to my son and nieces. Thank you for some wonderful memories.

1954 at the Movie Garden Drive-Inn, Eustis,Fl.. Standing in the back of the Farm pick-up. 6 years old. It was scary at night, at the Drive-Inn, under the stars in central Florida(the old Florida), watching The Creature on the Big Screen. When we got home to the old log cabin, I jumped in the bed and covered up my head!!!! Kids today don't know how they missed the Drive-Inn theatre days. Wow! What a great time of Life.

I was about 5 or 6 when we went to see Creature at the drive in. We lived right on the edge of the everglades, with swamp right outside our back door. I was not an easily scared kid, saw all the Monster Movies
with my family, but this one gave me nightmares for years!!!!!!! It still has
the ability to make me uneasy over 50 years later. [:-?]
