Co-presented by Amoeba Music and SF IndieFest

The horror film Creature from the Black Lagoon released to theaters in 1954, and quickly became iconic. But thanks to a jealous male colleague, the monster’s designer Milicent Patrick received zero credit for her contribution. Her career ended soon thereafter, and she disappeared. Screenwriter and film producer Mallory O’Meara uncovers a fascinating story of the woman who created one of Hollywood’s classic movie monsters. The Lady from the Black Lagoon establishes Milicent Patrick in her rightful place in film history, while calling out a Hollywood culture where little has changed since. Book signing at 6pm, followed by 7pm onstage conversation and screening of the film (in 3-D). $25
