Did you know you can spot they uncredited Clint Eastwood. Revenge was his first screen appearance.
Watch for him his is a lab assistant whearing a white lab coat and doing a mouse gag in the lab scene with the monkey.

Also Revenge was the hightest grossing of the trilogy. This movie was shot in 3-D the only of the set. And   Stuntman Tom Hennesy almost drowned during filming. Playing the creature, he grabs Helen Dobson (actually stuntwoman Ginger Stanley) on a pier and jumps with her into the water. The scene was shot at night, and when Hennesy and Stanley hit the water, they discovered it was full of jellyfish; in addition, a freak current started to pull them both down. Hennesy let go of Stanley, who swam to the surface, because his Gill-Man costume had become waterlogged and was too heavy for him to fight the current that was pulling them down. He was rescued by two local boys who happened to be watching the filming from a nearby boat, and quickly raced over and pulled him in.

Revenge of the Creature from Fuzzy Memories 1982 Son of Svengoolie

Here's the open from Son of Svengoolie episode Number 158 - the famous 3-D Movie - Revenge of the Creature! A great (slightly disappointing) moment in Chicago Brodcasting History! ;-)

I included the first couple minutes of the movie so you could see a little bit of the 3-D effect - not so much during the titles, but as the movie starts you can see even without the glasses how the picture looks a little different. Not really sure how this was supposed to work with a black and white movie though. Anyone understand the mechanics behind it?

This aired at 8pm on Thursday, July 29th 1982.
