2019 SCIBA Book Award Winner for Biography A Thrillist Best Book of the Year A Book Riot Best Book of 2019 One of Booklist's 10 Best Art Books of the Year The Los Angeles Times Bestseller A PureWow "Book We Can't Wait to Read in 2019" A Bustle Nonfiction Book Coming Out In 2019 To Start Getting Excited About The Lady from the Black Lagoon uncovers the life and work of Milicent Patrick--one of Disney's first female animators and the only woman in history to create one of Hollywood's classic movie monsters As a teenager, Mallory O'Meara was thrilled to discover that one of her favorite movies, Creature from the Black Lagoon, featured a monster designed by a woman, Milicent Patrick. But for someone who should have been hailed as a pioneer in the genre, there was little information available. For, as O'Meara soon discovered, Patrick's contribution had been claimed by a jealous male colleague, her career had been cut short and she soon after had disappeared from film history. No one even knew if she was still alive. As a young woman working in the horror film industry, O'Meara set out to right the wrong, and in the process discovered the full, fascinating story of an ambitious, artistic woman ahead of her time. Patrick's contribution to special effects proved to be just the latest chapter in a remarkable, unconventional life, from her youth growing up in the shadow of Hearst Castle, to her career as one of Disney's first female animators. And at last, O'Meara discovered what really had happened to Patrick after The Creature's success, and where she went. A true-life detective story and a celebration of a forgotten feminist trailblazer, Mallory O'Meara's The Lady from the Black Lagoon establishes Patrick in her rightful place in film history while calling out a Hollywood culture where little has changed since.… (mais)

A completely fascinating book. I am ashamed to say that I had never heard of Milicent Patrick, nor have I even seen The Creature from the Black Lagoon, in which she created the eponymous Creature. Mallory O'Meara recounts both Milicent Patrick's story and her own quest for information about this important creator who was written out of history, culminating in her efforts to trace and contact Milicent Patrick's surviving relatives. It's ultimately a sad story - after being fired for not being invisible enough in 1953, she lived another forty-five years without being able to do the work she was best at, doing odd bits and pieces of work in southern California. An important story. ( )

3.5. I liked the Hollywood history and #metoo content, but horror and the post-studio era aren't really my genres. Milicent and the author were both likable and interesting, though.

(Summer reading: a non-fiction book.) ( )

This was so interesting and engaging. It left me wanting to learn more about Hollywood monster creation, horror movies, and O'Meara's film work, and was super satisfying story-wise. Highly recommend! ( )

The Creature from the Black Lagoon has reemerged from the deep, deep waters of history.
 
[starred review] Patrick was a footnote long lost to film history, but O’Meara has decided to change all that with her fascinating biography.

Patrick died in 1998, at age 82, largely forgotten except for a coterie of devoted fans. O’Meara has seen to it that she won’t be forgotten again. Her book is a fierce and often very funny guide to the distaff side of geekdom and reproduces photos and examples of Patrick’s work, many previously unpublished. That alone would be worth the price of admission to the world of this complex, brilliant artist.

In this captivating and exhaustively researched biography, screenwriter and producer O’Meara chronicles the largely unknown story of artist and actress Milicent Patrick, designer of the monster in the 1954 film Creature from the Black Lagoon.

In a low-cut, tight-fitting black crepe dress, worn under a white lace coat, with flashing necklace, earrings and bracelets, Miss Patrick, who is of Italian German descent, looked a lot more like a fashion illustration herself than a creator of bizarre monsters. Unmarried, she admits to no current romance.
"Why should I bother with Hollywood wolves?" she murmured. "I'm happy with my monsters."

-Milicent Patrick in an interview with journalist Jane Corby for the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, Valentine's Day, 1954
