    An early technicolor, horror/ comedy. Atwill is a mad wax sculpture who intends to turn Wray into his Marie Antoinette, comic relief comes from Farrell & McHugh as reporters determined to expose Atwill. The early color technology makes the world too cartoonish at times and the comedy seems better suited for a different film. The '53 version entitled "House of Wax" is the better recommendation. I give it a 2.5/5.

  • Classic Wray & Atwill(1933)

    The significance of this film is more historical than entertainment, but that being said seeing Fay Wray and Lionel Atwill in two strip technicolor is more than worth the price of admission. Directed by Michael Curtiz of "Casablanca" fame, this story centers on a sculptor,Mr. Igor(Atwill) who meets with tragic consequences when his partner decides arson is the best way to turn a profit and poof, no more wax museum,at least for the moment. Disfigured in the fire Atwill seeks to use real human bodies to recreate his new museum. This sends the film over the border of disbelief, but the actors provide enough to keep the story going.Fay Wray looking as lovely as ever steals the show. Frank McHugh also stars as the Editor. 4 stars out of 5. Entertaining but unrealistic.The film process adds another dimension.

  • A Nightmare in Wax.

    Michael Curtiz directed this early Technicolor horror film classic based on Charles S. Belden's book. Lionel Atwill is menacing as a vengeful wax sculptor, who turns his victims into wax figures. Fay Wray is as beautiful as she was in King Kong (1933) as Atwill's unsuspecting victim. With Glenda Farrell, Frank McHugh, Allen Vincent, Arthur Edmund Carewe, Gavin Gordon, Holmes Herbert, Edwin Maxwell, Thomas jackson, Claude King & Matthew Betz.

  • On DVD Separately

    Personally, I'd prefer if this title was on DVD separately...and sooner rather than later. After all, I like Lionel Atwill in this one. Despite the Technicolor looking very mild, it's still technicolor.

  • it is on dvd
