THE BLOB (1958 U.S.) D: IRVIN S. YEAWORTH W: KAY LINAKER/THEODORE SIMONSON/IRVING H. MILLGATE P: JACK H. HARRIS
Many people seem to have fond memories of this campy sci-fi (complete with Burt Bacharach theme tune) about a blobby substance that comes to Earth in a meteorite and grows and grows as it absorbs people in a small American town. But i know i`m not the only one who finds it irritating and not anywhere near as endearing as i`m constantly told it`s supposed to be. Steve McQueen is the teen hero. With Olin Howlin, Del Close and Alden "Stephen" Chase. The concept (which is a good one) was handled better in the 30 years later sequel/remake. But before that, there was a sequel SON OF BLOB!
