This episode focuses on a rather obscure film that is a favorite of Tim and Melissa. Mystery of the Wax Museum has lots of things working for it. It has Fay Wray (of King Kong fame) and is directed by Michael Curtiz (who also directed Casablanca). The film would later be remade into House of Wax, starring Vincent Price. It may take a little while to find this film but the search will be worth it. Enjoy!
Our next episode will be with a live audience from the Trylon Microcinema where we watched Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence.
