Ben Chapman, who portrayed "The Gill Man" in Creature From The Black Lagoon (at least, whenever he was above water) passed away two weeks ago after a lifetime of being identified with the iconic sea beast and loving it. Although he only acted in one film following the original movie, he would travel the mainland United States (he lived in Hawaii) to attend autograph shows and make appearances until late in life. While he wasn't credited with playing one of movieland's most famous monsters, he embraced the infamy that came with it.
