[Steam Whistle]

Obi, we anchor here.

We stay here

tonight, Nardo.

We go to the

Black Lagoon in the morning.

I fix you some supper now.

What are we having tonight?

Oh, big surprise. What we

didn't finish last night.

What I'd give for

a tall, cold beer.

Or a short,

warm blonde.

The Gill Man;

prehistoric monster.

Maybe there's no such thing.

You find him, mister.

I'll catch him.

It doesn't look good for

a conservative institution

like Ocean Harbor...

to circus a yarn and

then not to deliver.

If you're smart,

you won't worry about it.

If there is a Gill Man,

we'll catch him.

If it's a phony,

well, the boss

is out his dough.



Hey, Lucas.

Yes, Mr. Johnson?


Ah, it's a crocodile.

Huh, you think

maybe that is it?

Oh no, the thing you are looking

for can break that in two.

You know, sometimes I think

all North Americanos are crazy.

If he is dead,

you waste your money.

If he's alive, maybe you

be sorry you find him.

Yeah? There isn't a

fish alive I can't handle.

Who says

he's a fish?

What a character.

This sweatbox.

Doesn't it ever cool off here?

Never. You want to go back?

At your service.

Not till we get the...

the whatever it is.

Then we'll go back.

He won't rest easy till

he's got it in the tank

back at Ocean Harbor.

What for do you

want to do this?

So people can come and

stare at the man-fish?

To please some

crazy scientists?

For this you're going

to risk your lives?

Who said anything

about risking lives?

It's a job.

A technical job.


Maybe then you

got a book...

that going to tell you

how to do this thing?

Now look, we're not

paying you to make jokes.

No joke.

Tomorrow we gonna

be in the lagoon.

You will go down

in the water.

Then is no longer

time for talking,

so maybe is better

we talk now, huh?

Okay, go ahead.

Last year I came to this place

with a party of scientists.

Also brave and highly

technical people.

In the end,

five persons were dead.

The Gill Man,

still there.

Were they equipped

for the capture?


Well, we are.

So, I like to

ask you something.

I'm not very

educated person.

This Gill Man,

this thing I have

seen with my eyes,

it... it doesn't

belong in our world.

It should've died out

long before man was born.

Still, it exists. Why?

Well, I'll try to

explain it to you.

Sometimes a species

gets isolated in time.

If the conditions are right,

it reproduces itself

without change,

skipping a chapter

of evolution.

Way back, there must

have been some major link...

between marine and

terrestrial life.

It's just possible

that this is it.

Well, that's all

there is to it.


Now I tell you

what I believe.

This beast exists because

it is stronger than...

than the thing that

you call evolution.

In it is some force

of life. A demon...

driving it through

millions of centuries.

It does not

surrender so easily...

to weaklings

like you and me.

This is the thing

that you hunt for.

Think on it.

Good night,



And that, kiddies, is our

fairy story for tonight.

Joe, maybe he's right.

Back in Florida...

You don't suppose

that they expect us...

to lose our lives

over this thing?

Maybe we got no business

to be here at all.

Want to play

some cards?


No, I think I'll

try to get some sleep.

You better do the same.

Oh, I'll sleep fine.

No imagination.

[Lucas] Drop anchor.


Yes, Captain.


Nardo, bring the net.

Bring the net down.


Good. The Americano

does the rest.

You get that

net secure, Joe,

and we got the

entrance sealed off.

Well, let's go.


In a suit like that,

he'll be helpless as a baby.

This baby was

born in that suit.

He's taken pretty good

care of himself up to now.


Now is different, my friend.

How are things?

[Radio] Lucas isn't

getting you scared, is he?



Take me up, George.!

Take me up.!

Bring him in! Bring him in!

He's in trouble.

The lines are fouled up.

Joe! Joe, are you

all right? Joe!

Is he gone?

Joe, can

you hear me?


Hey, look.

He's coming up.

Keep bringing

him in.

Bring him in!


Hurry up.!


He's got the air hose.

[Lucas] Get the rifle.

Quick, shoot him.

Shoot him.

Bring him

to the ladder.

[George] Help him up.


Get him on deck.


Oh, he's hurt.

Look at that suit.

It's all slashed.

Watch his feet, Obi.

Get him over there

and sit him down.

Quick as you can.


Look, he's

bleeding badly.

I'll get this

helmet-plate off.

Did you get him?

I don't know, but I'm

glad he didn't get you.

Pull the pin, Lucas.

Si, I do it.

I hope you ain't going to

blow up my boat, Mr. Johnson.

Like my wife, she's not much,

but she's all I have.

Don't worry. There's just

enough dynamite in these cans...

to stun anything

below the surface.

If that thing's alive,

this oughta do the trick.

Go on back to the Rita.

All right.

Uh, you do

it easy, huh?

You ready?

Here goes nothin'.

Well, no sign of him.

Maybe this time we are

lucky and he is dead, huh?

There he is!

What's this?



By golly, you're right.

There he is.

Come on, Lucas,

let's go get him.

Always I have

the bad luck.

Be sure you

tie him up good.

This is the first telephoto

of the fantastic find received

from Rio deJaneiro.

The creature

is in a coma.

Has been ever since its capture

in an isolated Amazon lagoon.

Right now it's being

flown to Florida's famed

Ocean Harbor Oceanarium...

where the experts hope to

restore it to consciousness.

Movement of the creature

has required some

split-second timing.

It can exist out of water for

only a few minutes at a stretch.

The capture of the Gill Man

has created the greatest

scientific stir...

since the explosion

of the atomic bomb.

Further information

is anxiously awaited...

in colleges and universities

throughout the world.

Why, Neal,

that's wonderful.

You have such a vibrant color

sense for a four-year-old.

You know, I think this

one is even good enough

to show to your friends.

All right,

lesson's over.

Now, turn around, Neal.

Turn around.

Turn around. Sit down.

All right now.

Open your mouth.

Oh, that's a boy.

All right now.

Cover your eyes.

Cover your eyes.

That's a good boy.

Now stand up.

Stand up.

Now put your arms over

your head and stretch.

Oh, what a good boy.

Good morning,

Miss Abbott.

Good morning, Dr. Ferguson.

Good morning, Neal.

Come over here and see me.

How's he doing?

Just fine.

Neal, what do you

think of your work?

Flattery will

get you nowhere.

It's just amazing.

He's really as

bright as a child.

Well, as bright as a two

or three-year-old anyway.

Well, that's fine,

but remember,

we're supposed to find out what

the difference is between...

the intelligence of

an ape and a human being.

And at the rate he's going,

sometimes I wonder if

there is any difference.

Doc, would you

come here a minute?
