The campy 1972 sequel to cult-classic horror film The Blob! A technician brings a frozen specimen of the original Blob back from the North Pole — but when his wife accidentally defrosts the thing, it terrorizes the populace! K Directed by Larry Hagman “Dallas,” “I Dream of Jeannie”

K Written by Anthony Harris and Jack Woods III K Based on a story by Jack H. Harris and Richard Clair

“In the years before ‘Dallas,’ the late Larry Hagman was best known as the buttoned-down astronaut who dreamed of Jeannie. But secretly he had a wild streak high and wide enough to land a 747 on. When he wasn’t toasting another sunrise with his next-door neighbor Keith Moon or dropping acid with David Crosby, he was working hard to get SON OF THE BLOB, his dream project, made. It’s a very strange, very loose sequel to the 1958 teen horror classic THE BLOB … with free-wheeling performances and absurdist humor unlike any other movie we’ve ever seen.” -

The war for control of North Africa was fought across thousands of square miles of blazing desert and inhospitable terrain. It began on September 13, 1940, when Italian troops invaded Egypt, and ended on May 13, 1943, with the surrender of all Axis forces in Tunisia. For two and a half years Axis and Allied armies seesawed across North Africa in what was the most dynamic and volatile theater of operations in World War II.

CONTENTS INCLUDE: FROM SIDI BARRANI TO EL ALAMEIN

The war in the western desert pitted British Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery against “The Desert Fox,” German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel. At stake was the control of the Suez Canal, and beyond that the vital oil fields of the Middle East. At El Alamein, the Battle for Egypt and control of North Africa hung in the balance.

FROM EL ALAMEIN TO TUNIS: THE BRITISH ADVANCE

The advance from El Alamein to Tunis was a mad dash across the scorching sands of the Sahara in hot pursuit of the retreating Afrika Korp. One by one, Benghazi, Tobruk, Tripoli, and finally Tunis fell before the Advancing 8th Army.

FROM CASABLANCA TO TUNIS: THE AMERICAN ADVANCE Beginning with the landings of Operation Torch, British and American forces under the command of Lieutenant General Dwight D. Eisenhower marched east to rendezvous with the British 8th Army in Tunisia and crush the Afrika Korp in a giant pincer movement. The campaign in North Africa represented the first major commitment of American ground troops in World War II.
