In question #3 the land-based Creature was played by Ben Chapman (one of the names listed). I met Ben Chapman around 20 years ago. Nice, friendly and tall. It should be noted that Ben Chapman refused to autograph any of the underwater photos of the Creature (played by Ricou Browning). Chapman told fans that he doesn't want to sign anything that is not him inside the costume. Browning, on the other hand, would autograph any photograph of the Creature. It didn't matter to Browning if he was in the costume or someone else was.
