Who is more responsible for their success, The Blob or Steve McQueen?

Would #theblob have been as big a star without Steve McQueen?

Producer Jack Harris knew talent when he saw it. And after seeing the young actor perform twice in one week Jack knew he had to have Steve in The Blob!

Initially Jack imagined them doing serval pictures together but could not get Steve to commit, and after production for the Blob ended the two parted ways as friends.

Steve would go to star in “The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery” while Harris began production his next project “4D Man”.

Which Steve McQueen do you prefer?

The small town hero or the ex-high school football star turned getaway driver?

The Great St. Louis Bank Robbery (1959) was Steve McQueen’s second starring role following The Blob a year prior. Both films we highly recommend. But of course our preferences has to be The Blob!

Project: Ta**us- Dialing in details... Sculpture will be molded next week...
I was walking through a local consignment shop, and found this newspaper printing block for the Blob. I was told on another site that this was from the 1964 re-release. I was walking through and I seen the name Blob on it. and then I seen a price of $10. I thought to myself, just for the cool factor it was worth that. I thought I'd share it with you, If you know anything about this, I'd really appreciate it. The size is about 3" x 2-1/2". I also attached a pic that I reversed to see the image the right way.
Hi everybody, I run The Lost Films Fanzine. Myself and Danny Lee Beane recently did some articles on Beware! The Blob in the recent issue. I had meant to ask this group if they had any juicy info on unmade Blob sequels before this issue went to print but I forgot! The only ones I knew of were "A Chip Off the Old Blob" and "Curse of the Blob" but didn't find much on their story details. Anybody have any juicy unmade Blob sequel trivia to share? Event though it's too late to get any new info into the fanzine I might incorporate it into a book one day if anyone has anything to share. And, if anyone's interested, the Halloween issue features Beware! The Blob as the cover story.
This image is of the screen-used, miniature book from Equinox... this was a gift from Dave Allen on our first meeting around 1978 (later in 1994, I would work with Dave in Romania as the makeup effects supervisor on Primevals)... When I was 8, Equinox was released into theaters in the Los Angeles area on March 31, 1971... after seeing Dave and Dennis Muren that morning on Ralph Story’s morning show, I was hooked... my parents begrudgingly took my brother, sister and I to see this (along with THX-1138) at the San Val Drive-In in Sun Valley, CA... well, I was a fan for life of this film after that due to the character of Ta**us, whom I felt was the most original creature design I had seen up to that point... A few years later, it would start to air on late night television and I got the bright idea to call my local tv station (KTTV 11) and find out when it would air... I couldn’t believe it when the scheduling department gave me the two, yearly air dates ( six months apart)... I called them for years (lol)... It was soon after that I ended up becoming friends with Famous Monsters editor, Forrest J Ackerman who introduced me to Jim Danforth (actually, my mother inquired about a Super-8 camera for me from Forry and he called Jim)... turns out Jim lived near me and I started to correspond with him... he introduced me to Dave and Dennis (I found out that Mark McGee lived near the house we has just moved out of in La Crescenta and started to hang out with him also)... The most mind-blowing thing for me was that Equinox was shot practically in my backyard... My father was the member of an archery club that met once a month at the Arroyo Seco park area of Pasadena under the bridge on Colorado Blvd.... turns out I was eating my lunches off the picnic tables used for the forced-perspective Green Giant sequence... I am also now convinced that the released version was shot in Descanso Gardens in La Canãda/Flintridge (another place I went to all the time as a kid)... The best part was as a teenager, I took the risk and found Jack H. Harris’ office number and called him... he was so friendly that he sent me a bunch of Equinox press material and even accepted a treatment a friend of mine and I wrote for a sequel titled, Equinox II: Beyond the Occult Barrier... Later, in 1988, I found myself working on the creature crew of The Blob remake... I finally had achieved my goal of working on a film produced by Jack... that was a thrill, but the nature of the production forced me to move onto the production of License to Kill... at least I still received my credit on The Blob... Currently, I have decided to recreate Ta**us as a display piece to go with the book and I’ve already crafted the ball-and-socket armature and once I have some time, will begin the sculpture... Equinox turned out to be the most important film of my life as it gave me so much enjoyment and a path into the film industry...
Question. What would happen if the Blob met the Gelatinous Cube? Would they become an unholy abomination?
The Blob 1958 Blu-Ray
Last Friday, February 28th 2020, Jeopardy! finally featured an answer about The Blob. It came up under the category of "Four letter words, beginning and ending with "B"! Long live The Blob!
When was it implied the blob gets bigger from heat sources? Been seeing that brought up a lot lately. Like in the return of the blob story on amazon. And on youtube. As a bsttle between Godzilla and blob. I always thought it was flesh that made him grow.
I had this weird moment after i realized that the 4d man and the blob were made by the ame guy and he used money from the blob to film the 4d man, a crossover movie. possibly the best b movie never made, but you can still enjoy the review I wrote. The 4d man vs the Blob. (1961) B movie maestro Jack Harris reportedly made the 4D man with the advance he was given to make the Blob. Both movies had certain similarities, like very cheap effects often involving photographs being filmed, and ended with a question mark. It was not surprising Harris would combine these 2 movies to make what many regarded as his best movie, the return of blob and the 4d man, in 1961. As the movie opens dastardly agents for an unnamed foreign power *koff* russia*koff* attack an arctic base, murdering it's AMERICAN personnel in cold blood (ha ha) in order to steal the blob as part of a dastardly enemy *koff*russian*koff* plan to destroy america. (How the russians plan to use the blob as a weapon against america without risking it consuming the world is never explained. Apparently those stupid co**ie rats never thought their plan thru. Wink) Meanwhile in a deep forest a bunch of hobos are having some stew and moonshine when a ragged, very aged man stumbles out of the woods. He is seen from behind. The hobos take pity on the wretched stranger and offer him food. Without hesitation the stranger steps thru the hobos in rapid succession, causing them to gasp, scream, drop dead and age rapidly.The stranger turns and is revealed as Robert Lansing, AKA the 4d man. A US military cargo plane, flown by those accented but unnamed evil furriners, flies thru a storm, and a lightning bolt grazes it. The stupid evil crew things all is well but doesn't realize the electrical surge blew out the freezer unit in the cargo bay. Boy we know where that's going. Meanwhile the 4d man is in mad scientist mode, working on a way to stabilize his condition and allow himself to feed off electrical power rather than human life energy. He has, with undefined resources, set himself up with a lab in a remote house who occupants have helped extend his life. Insanely talking to the withered corpses he tells them hopefully he won't have to resort to such "unpleasantness" much longer and how scientific progress usually came at a price, like Marie Curie's death by radiation poisoning. It was nothing personal, he casually assures the corpses as he works on some arcane technology. On board the plane, blob unfreezes and has itself an exotic russian breakfast, flavored with vodka and terrible accents. The plane, out of control, flies towards california. (OH NO! NOT CALIFORNIA!) Cut to The 4d man's brother, Tony Nelson, (No, not the guy who found a genie in a bottle a few years later!) and his new wife,Linda. (Lee Meriwether) They are trying to reconstruct the super metal cargonite as was mentioned in the original 4d man, as such a super metal will give America a tremendous military advantage over "the co**ies". Tony is having a hard time as many of the people who created cargonite, especially his brilliant but bitter and insane brother are dead or... We remember that the 4d man's fate was uncertain at the end of the movie. (Stealing Scott's formula wasn't as easy as stealing his girl, hey, Tony?) Model plane crashes in california desert, and the top billed star, the blob, makes it full appearance. (it had only been seen from it's own POV while it ate the reds on the plane. Military forces who had tracked the plane arrive and see it emerging. Machine guns, rockets and even flamethrowers do not stop it. The california desert is to hot to freeze it in and it is too mobile. Tony thinks a massive cargonite cell could trap it if it were lured or driven into it but needs the formula. Meanwhile bodies of dead hobos are discovered and linked to the 4d man. Informed of his survival, Linda makes a desperate appeal to Scott over the media to help save the human race. Scott conveniently catches her appeal. He picks up a phone. He is brought to the couple, his former lover and brother, and offers to help but is visibly aging, needing more human life energy. In a cold yet noble scene an army sergeant volunteers to give his life to keep scott alive to finish the cargonite cell. Scott seems hesitant to take the life of a man volunteering for such an end, and closes his eyes before driving his hand into the volunteer. The military is taking advantage of the blob's mindless nature, luring it back towards the desert with low flying helicopters full of volunteers that it keeps pursuing in a, well, mindless fashion. Cargonite must be easy to mass produce because with Scot's help a massive (matte painted) cargonite chamber that should contain the blob is built in the desert apparently in sort order. The blob is lured towards it when things go fubar. An evil co**ie saboteur is at the scene and sabotages everything (Boy, maybe McCarthy was right...) The mass of red silicone, same prop used in the original movie, btw, gets a quick meal when the co**ie shoots at the copter engine to make it crash. Those were good men... Scott sees the men being eaten alive by the horrible blob and suddenly realizes he is an even worse monster than it is. It's a mindless mass of protoplasm, he chose to become what he did, his horrible epiphany reveals to him. (His realization doesn't stop him from killing the co**ie b*st*rd to take some of the grey makeup out of his hair, tho. We all know killing co**ies is OK. ) Tony and linda are cut off and forced to flee into the cargonite chamber thru it's one entrance, the blobs oozes after them. Seeing his brother and former lover trapped and about to be slimed to death, Scott snarls, screams in rage and runs straight into the massive blob, phasing thru it. Linda and Tony are shocked to see scott come thru the cargonite chamber doorway, emerging from the mass of blob that was just beginning to ooze thru it. Collapsing, Scott gasps he hoped to kill the blob by draining its life energy but there was too much, still the blob apparently didn't like being phased thru one iota. it's surface texture has changed slightly, indicating possible damage to it's "protoplasmic molecular structure", according to Linda. Furthermore, big red apparently decides a Linda and tony combo isn't really worth going thru someone who can go thru it. It starts oozing away, slowly. Tony explains "Even mindless, it recognizes that you can hurt it, Scott! It's withdrawing from you like it withdraws from cold!" Maybe tony can get a job as Captain Obvious after he helps america beat the damn co**ies. Scott escorts the newlyweds away from the blob which is moving a mite slower after being phased thru and having some of it's life energy slurped up by Scott. Scott tells tony and linda to flee, he intends to "Kill that damn thing no matter the cost!" Tony looks in Scott's eyes and realizes what he's going to do. He heads off yelling at everyone to "clear out, run! There's gonna be an explosion!" Linda still feels for Scott, obviously, especially after being saved form a really horrible death by him, but knows it's for the best. (she did shoot him in the first movie, after all.) She looks at him and says "Scott, I..I wish... things could..." Scott kills the awkward moment with a line that would be copped by Harrison ford decades later "I know." then tells her to run. Extras in army uniforms begin piling into jeeps and trucks, considerately taking linda and tony with them. Scott is busy herding the 4d man avoiding blob away from the fleeing crew. As they drive off he takes a deep breath and runs thru the blob again, which convulses violently and begins to steam. Scott emerges, glowing faintly and obviously in pain. He looks at the steaming, bubbling blob and realizes it's still alive. With a roar of fury he charges into it and does not come out. The blob begins to violently boil and crumble into a heap of black chunks looking somewhat like ground up charcoal bricks. As it does a bright light is seen in the middle of it's collapsing form. It is scott, glowing brilliantly, doubled over in agony but still on his feet. As the blob becomes a flattened heap of black rubble, scott raises his face up to the sky and his eyes snap open. Shafts of white light shoot up into the sky from them and his mouth as he barks out a short, pained, victorious laugh. He then explodes in a rotoscoped animation of stock nuclear test footage. Later, Linda, Tony and a few military types stand looking down into a deep black crater. A colonel or something tells tony "Your brother did horrible things, but in the end he reclaimed his humanity and probably saved millions, maybe hundreds of millions of lives." Tony nods. The end. No question mark. Robert Lansing's acting really carried this movie. This was no mean feat since he was often acting to a mass of red silicone. His facial expressions as he realizes with horror how much of a monster he has become was a very powerful scene. The effects were a little better than either of the original movies, but only a bit. How the russians planned to use the blob as a weapon was never explained, but this was still a solid B movie and outgrossed both it's predecessors. I give it a 5/5
