Jack Arnold was a prolific genre director over the course of his many years as a filmmaker. He started as a cinematographer in the Army Signal Corps during World War II, and after the end of the war started a production company that made promotional films for nonprofit organizations. His early film With These Hands (1950) was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The movies he went on to make in Hollywood as a contract director for Universal Pictures—among them It Came from Outer Space (1953), Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), Tarantula! (1955), and The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957)—became his best-known works. Even late into his career, Arnold kept an office on the Universal lot.
