Product Description

MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM Original Warner Brothers Scene Lobby Card (11x14). Near Mint Condition.

Original Warner Brothers Scene Lobby Card (11x14) for the Michael Curtiz horror thriller, MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM (1933) starring Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, Glenda Farrell, and Frank McHugh. The story starts out in 1921 in London, where artist Ivan Igor (Atwill) sculpts masterpieces in wax and displays them in a small museum. When his partner starts a fire in the museum to collect the insurance, Igor is knocked out and left in the burning building. Twelve years later, Igor--now confined to a wheelchair with his hands destroyed by the fireÌ¢åÛåÓopens a new museum in New York. But a snoopy reporter suspects that he is stealing bodies from the morgue and covering them with wax for the museum. This film was produced before the infamous Production Code. When the film was remade some 20 years later as HOUSE OF WAX (1953), all references to drug use were removed and a character was changed from a junkie to an alcoholic. And if you think the wax figures look like real people, that's because they ARE real people. The original wax figures they planned to use melted under the heat of the intense lights. This original scene lobby card of Wray, Farrell, and Atwill in his new museum is in near mint condition.
