DescriptionThe Blob (Paramount, 1958). Folded, Fine+. One Sheet (27" X 41").
An iconic 1950s sci-fi thriller, this teen flick was a favorite at the drive-ins, and its theme song "The Blob," written by a young Burt Bacharach, was an instant hit. Steve McQueen and girlfriend Aneta Corsaut hunt for a mysterious meteor that has landed in their town. The monster that comes out of the meteor terrorizes the townspeople and chases the teens into a diner for the final showdown, which is depicted on this panic-filled one sheet. The poster has slight edge and fold wear, small fold separations, pinholes, and a few tears. Other wear includes minor paper lifts, unobtrusive smudges, and some staining, in addition to tape stains. There are several pieces and strips of cellophane tape on the verso bracing tears and folds.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
