Here's an original 🗞️ ad for 'The Blob.' Below it, notice the movie being advertised. In his book, 'Father of the Blob,' this is what the film producer, Jack H Harris, had to say about it:
"A couple of months before the premiere, I found out that Paramount had sunk almost a half a million dollars into a minor little black and white production called 'I Married A Monster From Outer Space.' 'The Blob' had been purchased as a second feature to their loser production. Though I wasn't too happy about it, I just knew that 'The Blob' would find its way out of second place because it was head, shoulders, and feet about 'I Married A Monster From Outer Space.'
When the double feature opened in about thirty selected theaters throughout the U.S., two of them did not receive the 'I Married A Monster From Outer Space' prints. The results were enormous and the best grosses came from the two houses that ran 'The Blob' alone. This created a new model. 'The Blob' suddenly became the top feature, and all promotion was devoted to 'The Blob.'
It opened in territory after territory in the domestic United States. In that era, national theater breaks were reserved for top, double-A features. After the California result, 300 theaters nationally opened the picture. Reading that week's 'Variety' (the movie trade paper bible), grosses were so high, you'd think I had made them up myself. When opening the two pages that showed every territory and what their gross was, every single one of them said, "'The Blob' Wows Them in Philly,' ''The Blob' Breaks Records in Chicago', "'The Blob' out grosses everything in Hartford, Boston, Detroit, Denver." It was unanimous. 'The Blob' was a hit, destined to become a sci-fi cult classic and acclaimed motion picture."
We've been going though Jack's files to bring you some cool movie memorabilia. So keep coming back for more, and beware of the Blob. 👍
The Blob is at it again...
If you thought “The Blob” at the center of the 1958 horror film was scary — there’s a modern-day glob that’s also causing widespread destruction.
In the mood for some Hollywood history about 'The Blob?'
Here are the original letters written to and from our movie director, Irvin S. Yeaworth, about getting approval for the film from the Motion Picture Association of America.
Our favorite line from MPAA's response:
"It will be important to avoid any undue gruesomeness throughout the scenes which the monster attacks its various victims."
We looked up what exactly was on page 25 of the script that prompted that statement and it was the scene when the old man was brought in to see the Doc by Jane and Steve.

Guess who's coming for dinner? The Blob.
Guess who's on the menu? You. 😉
Blob Fan Mike aka Manik.Vision shared this photo he took at the Chiller Theatre of Wes Shank, a big collector of all things The Blob and owner of the original Blob from the 1950s film production. As you can see, the Blob withstands the test of time. Nothing can beat the Blob!
Even if you're lucky enough to see it coming, you better hope the Blob doesn't corner you.
Because you can't negotiate with it...
Or persuade it...
Or distract it...
From making you lunch!
Just in case you need a little more Steve McQueen in your life.
The Blob is sneaky...
Without making a sound, it finds you...
When it touches you, there's no way to get away from it...
Your fate is sealed...
You. Are. Lunch.

Despite the 61-year-old iconic flesh-eating alien being indescribable at best, here's a list of 7 reasons (in no particular order) that prove why the Blob is a monster above the rest of the competition.

What do you think the Blob represents?
In the photo below, Film Director Irvin “Shorty” Yeaworth (from left) directs “The Blob” as Producer, Jack H Harris, and the crew listens in on his direction.
Yeaworth had directed 400 Christian films before taking on his first monster movie. When Harris challenged Yeaworth as to whether he would be equally devoted to his film, Shorty answered, “The monster represents God’s wrath at the failings of humanity.”
