Bodies are mysteriously disappearing all over the town, and a new wax museum has just opened. Is there a connection ? But of course! In this horror classic, Fay Wray (King Kong) stars as the intended victim of a mad wax sculptor obsessed by her resemblance to one of his prior creations.

The story line should be familiar since it's been reworked several times since. A master wax sculpturer is crippled by a fire set by a mercenary partner. The Wax Museum re-opens some 10 years later in a different country (USA). The wax figures look almost too real! Despite the billing, Glenda Farrell is the star of the show. Her wit and energy keep this film moving and that's a good thing because the rest of the characters are rather flat. Fay Wray is the victim (of course) and she looks quite lovely in this early color film. She also has the best scream I've ever heard in a movie.
Highest recommendation for: Early color movie deserves a place on most collectors shelves. The transfer is pretty good too. Also recommended for Fay Wray fans.
