This black and white sci-fi film from late 1957 or 1958 features a story line of a experimental rocket that collect air from near the edge of space. The fine crystals recovered are taken to a scientists lab (in the middle of the desert, of course) and it grows into a hideous blob like creature. One of the 3 stooges has a role as a taxi driver.

Hello Rich,
It sounds like it could be The Quatermass Experiment (1953) (TV series) or The Quatermass Xperiment (1955)

But the idea of a Taxi Driver has defeated me

Hey guy....thanks so much. Just could not remember this films name. I remember the film scene to scene just not the name. Would LOVE to buy on DVD sometime.

Doesn't seem to have ever gotten an official DVD release, but there are DVD-Rs of it for sale (if your DVD player will play DVD-Rs) like this one on eBay -- https://www.ebay.com/itm/Space-Master-X-7-DVD-1958-Bill-Williams-Lyn-Thomas-Robert-Ellis-Frre-Shippi... -- but the picture quality won't be as good as an official DVD release. But it's not very expensive, so you might want to take the gamble . . .
