Story : paleontologist finds hand of strange creature. Scientists take a boat trip to see what's what.
Excellent example of good actors ( several familiar faces ) with appropriate dialogue move the plot forward in an enjoyable way. Aqua man has classic look tho only a man in a rubber suit. Julie Adams is classic, nice/smart/attractive scientist whose tank suit swim with the gill man looking on from below is nicely done.
Shot outdoors cinematography has great crisp deep b & w effect. Score is at times frantic, other times pastoral to provide distinctive added texture for the visuals. Liked that Richard Carlson cared enough for the " creature " he stopped o thersfrom finishing him off at the end. Two sequels are cheesy. 8-/10 likeable creatures
