Fox Archives: 60th anniversary of ‘The Fly’ (1958)


August 2018 marks the 60th anniversary of Kurt Neumann’s “The Fly.” The film, starring David Hedison, Vincent Price and Patricia Owens, was adapted from George Langelaan’s short story of the same name. The success of the 20th Century Fox film spawned two sequels and the eventual 1986 remake starring Jeff Goldblum. To help celebrate this science fiction tale of transformation, here is some rare behind-the-scenes photography.

The Fox Archives is mandated to collect, catalog, preserve and make accessible the following assets of the 20th Century Fox studios: props, set decoration, photographs, art department and publicity materials from our film and television productions, and from the 20th Century Fox studio itself. We work primarily with internal Fox groups but also from time to time with outside organizations such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry.
