The Blob

Factual error: Steve McQueen remarks that the chunk of meteorite is hot - though this is a common misconception (and probably belongs on several movies' boards), meteorites are almost invariably cold, given that by the time they hit Earth their frigid inner layers are exposed by the friction of air drag. (00:20:40)

Other mistake: At or just after the point where Steve McQueen restrains the diner owner from running out the door - McQueen's wedding ring is visible on his left hand throughout one entire long-shot. (He was 27, despite playing a teenager, and had been married to Neile Adams for more than a year).

Steve Andrews: Dad, it isn't vandalism! Doctor Hallen is dead, and he was killed by some sort of a monster! Now, I know because I saw it, Dad.
