(Universal, 1954/98) A signed restrike photograph of the Gill-man from Creature from the Black Lagoon. The gelatin silver photograph has been inscribed, signed, and dated in blue felt pen at upper left, “Aloha Gary – Welcome to my ‘Black Lagoon.’ Ben Chapman Honolulu 4-5-98.” The photo is accompanied by a printed letter signed in blue felt pen by Chapman clarifying that he was the sole actor portraying the Creature during the film, save for a few stunt sequences, and the only person to appear as Gill-man in publicity material. His assertions are substantiated by an included photocopy of Chapman’s original Screen Actors Guild contract with Universal Pictures for the film, which he has additionally hand-signed in blue felt pen. The photo measures 9”x7” visible through a 15.25”x13.25” frame, the letter measures 14”x8.5”, and the copy contract is 13”x8.5”. The documents have been folded in half horizontally. All items are in fine condition.
