Jack Harris signs his new book, Father of the Blob: The Making of a Monster Splash and Other Hollywood Tales. The 96-year-old producer goes behind the scenes on the filming of the 1958 horror classic – soon to undergo a big Hollywood remake – and how he cast a young Steve McQueen in the lead. He went on to make 30 other cult movies. In his memoir, Harris also chronicles how he began his career as a kid actor in vaudeville, and dishes celebrity anecdotes on Jack Nicholson, Jackie Kennedy, Natalie Wood, Howard Hughes, Mary Pickford and others.
