  • Creating the creature

    The Creature From the Black Lagoon and all the following movies are my favorite. I have them on my Kindle and on DVD. When the movies are on TV, I watch them, too. Did I say how much I love the creature? Millicent Patrick is the artist who created this creature. A woman making her way in a man's world. Jealousy kept her from being acknowledged for this amazing creation. She was a very beautiful and talented woman. This is not the only monster she made. There are several other popular monsters that she was responsible for making, as well. She had a long and interesting life. I liked how the author spoke of how this story has affected her life. Mallory O’Meara is also, in the horror industry. It is well written and researched. I loved reading about Millicent's later life. She sounds like someone I would like to have known. When I saw the title of this book, I knew I had to read it. I was not disappointed. I would love to read more stories like this. Awesome book.I received this book from Net Galley and Hanover Square Press. The opinions expressed are my own.

  • Fascinating.

    Wow. Fascinating search for a woman who tried to buck the "old boys" culture in Hollywood in the 1950s. She wasn't perfect but had a difficult and unusual childhood. The writer really does a good job of describing her own personal angst concerning a determined artist who faced the roadblocks that women still face today. Only slight criticisms about this book were that the chapters were way too long. Also I would have liked to see more photographs.

    Thanks for your feedback!
