The Blob (1958)

The Blob is a 1958 American science fiction film directed by Irvin Yeaworth and stars Steve McQueen in one of his first acting roles.

In Summer 1957, a meteorite lands outside of a rural Pennsylvania town, unleashing an amoeba-like alien organism that consumes and dissolves its victims, growing ever larger and more aggressive the more people it consumes. A sequel, titled Beware! The Blob, was released in 1972, as well as a remake in 1988.

12 Gauge Double Barreled Shotgun

Dr. Hallen (Alden "Stephen" Chase) retrieves a 12 gauge shotgun from his office wall to shoot at the blob, to no effect.

The shotgun is tucked under Hallen's arm as he tries to phone for help.
Lieutenant Dave Barton (Earl Rowe) examines the shotgun after it is found in Hallen's office in a later scene.

Unidentified Rifle

Sergeant Jim Bert (John Benson) first uses a bolt-action rifle during the climax of the film. They are not fired onscreen and seen only fleetingly in brief scenes.

Jim's first rifle is held when the blob attacks the movie theater.

Cooey Model 60

The second rifle used by Sergeant Jim Bert is a small-caliber rifle with underbarrel tube magazine. The shape and length of the magazine and the handguard allows to identify the rifle as a Cooey Model 60.

Cooey Model 600 - .22 Long Rifle. This is a 1960s model that looks nearly the same as the Model 60.
Later, Jim takes aim with a Cooey Model 60 rifle with sniper scope to down some power lines in an attempt to kill the blob.


The cops - Dave, Jim, and Ritchie (George Karas) - have holstered, wood-handled revolvers of some kind but these are never taken out and used.

Dave's revolver grip is seen briefly in his holster as he gets up from his desk.
