Creature From The Black Lagoon

Watched this again for the first time in about 5 years. And, while the Creature design is a rightful classic and Julie Adams is very easy on the eye, i still don't rate it that much.
Sure it had plenty of impact at its time, but the plot is so old and cliched now that it makes for difficult viewing.
Ditto anything filmed in 3D but shown in 2D - there's only so many wobbly claws being dangled in front of me that i can take.
But mainly its the AWFUL signature theme for the Creature that seems to be used every 5 seconds or so. Did they have to use it that much? And, if so, did it have to be played on such jarring, blaring trumpets????
Getting back on the modelling topic, here's my Horizon version of the fella - still in my mind the best kit produced of him.
