Vincent Price classic!...

'Mystery Of The Wax Museum' 1933 film (74 mins)
'Newsreel: Round-the-Clock Premiere': Coast Hails House Of Wax (2 mins)

Professor Jarrod (Vincent Price) is a devoted wax figure sculptor for his museum in 1910s NYC. When his financial partner, Sidney Wallace (Paul Cavanagh), demands more sensational exhibits to increase profits, Jarrod refuses. The vengeful Wallace torches the museum, leaving Jarrod for dead. Miraculously, Jarrod survives (though his hands and legs are rendered useless) and builds a new House of Wax with help from threatening deaf-mute sculptor, Igor (Charles Bronson). The museum's popular "Chamber of Horrors" showcases recent crimes like the murder of Wallace, a victim of a cloaked, disfigured killer along with his fiancée, Cathy (Carolyn Jones). When Cathy's friend Sue (Phyllis Kirk) visits the museum she makes a discovery that leads to the horrifying truth behind the House of Wax...
