BLOB DIRECTOR DIES
78-year-old director Irvin Yeaworth Jr., director of The Blob, died last week when, according to his wife, he had fallen asleep behind the wheel of his car and ran it off the road. Yeaworth was in the Middle East, Jordan to be exact, when the fatal accident occurred.
Shortly after helming The Blob in '58, The 4-D Man in '59, and Dinosaurus! in 1960, Yeaworth went on to direct more than a handful of religious films. He was in the process of completing an entertainment complex in Jordan before he died July 19th.
