Mystery of the Wax Museum

Mystery of the Wax Museum ★★★½

This Michael Curtiz directed mystery thiller is eerily compelling with all the bizarre characters weaving in and out of scenes. Lionel Atwill is a really excellent thespian shredding the scenary and making every other actor seem amateurish. One of the last first generation Technicolor films made that captures tried and true gothic lighting techniques.
