The Blob (12-Sep-1958)

Director: Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.

Writers: Theodore Simonson; Kate Phillips; Irvine H. Millgate

Music Composed and Conducted by: Ralph Carmichael

Producer: Jack H. Harris

Keywords: Sci-Fi/Horror

A meteorite falls in near a small town; a blob from its center attaches itself to a farmer's hand. Two teens, Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut deliver the farmer to the local doctor, but a short time later they see the doctor engulfed by the blob. Predictably, nobody will listen to the kids' story. McQueen's debut as lead in this well-paced and influential cult classic. Followed by a sequel, Beware! The Blob (1972), and a big-budget remake, The Blob (1988).
