A powerful, moving biography about the life and works of Milicent Patrick, the uncrowned First Lady of monster design and the artist responsible for Universal's iconic Creature of the Black Lagoon.
Mallory O'Meara brings her personal heroine to life and light with the dedication of a true detective, as Patrick's story holds mysteries beyond how she had her brightest moment snuffed out by Hollywood's sexist motion picture industry, and proves herself to be as strong as her subject matter.....exposing how very little as changed over the years. She deserves widespread acclaim for giving back Milicent Patrick to the world, and placing her in the limelight she earned but never knew in life.
Truly two incredible women. Get to know them.
Highest possible recommendation.
