Classic Film Friday: The Blob

I saw this classic the other day on TCM, and for the most part it is Steve McQueen's coming out party. He is a teenager, Steve Andrews and he Jane Martin (Aneta Corsaut) witnesses a very strange thing. A older man is "attacked" by a meteor, in which he starts poking around and this ooze gets on him and he can not get it off. Steve spots the man on the road, as he and his date are out cruising.

Now Steve offers to take the man to a doctor, which the man agrees, but the blob only gets worse, kills the man and others as well. And it can not be stopped, as it grows Steve is trying to warn everyone but who is going to listen to a teenager? So he takes matters into his own hands.
