Starring Lionel Atwill, Fay Wray, Glenda Farrell
Bodies are mysteriously disappearing all over town, and a new wax museum has just opened. Is there a connection? But of course! In this macabre horror classic, Fay Wray stars as the intended next victim of a mad wax sculptor (Lionel Atwill) obsessed with her resemblance to one of his prior creations, while a scene-stealing Glenda Farrell is the wisecracking newspaper reporter trying to get the bottom of the sinister goings-on. Strikingly shot using the early two-color Technicolor process, MYSTERY OF THE WAX MUSEUM was considered a lost film for decades, until a well-worn print was discovered and returned to its eerie luster through a meticulous restoration.
