    Description

    The Blob (Paramount, 1958). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). Steve McQueen had only a few uncredited roles under his belt when he was given the opportunity to star in this science fiction thriller that combined two of the most popular themes of the 1950s -- the "misunderstood teen" and the "outer space monster." This film evokes all the memories of the camp sci-fi classics as McQueen leads a group of teenagers into battle to save their town from being devoured by a giant glob of outer space goo. Leave it to the teenagers (not the army or scientists) to figure out how to destroy it. This was one of the better films of its type from the 1950s, which makes the lobby card set very desirable. The cards have pinholes in the corners and borders, and card #1 has a chip and a tear in the left border. All eight cards have edge and corner wear, minor staining in the borders and light wrinkling. Four cards have heavy brown tape on the reverse, but all of the images are in good shape. Fine.

    Please see full-color, enlargeable images above for more details.
