Cataloguing

Catalogue Note

This American colour 3-D horror film was directed by Andre DeToth and stars Vincent Price. It was a remake of the 1933 film Mystery of the Wax Museum. This film was the first colour 3-D full length film from a major American studio. Owing to the popularity of the film it had a major re-release in 1971, with newly-truck prints of the film in Chris Condon's single-strip StereoVision 3-D format.


Luigi Martinati designed an exceptional poster for this 1953 horror film. Martinati emphasised that the film was shown in 3-D.
