    Description

    House of Wax (Warner Brothers, 1953). One Sheet (27" X 41"). Warner Brothers' first venture into 3-D technology also became the most successful 3-D movie of the decade as well as the studio's most profitable film since 1947. In his first lead role in a horror film, a role that would define his career, Vincent Price plays Prof. Henry Jarrod, the owner of a wax museum with incredibly life-like wax statues. When murder victims begin resembling the museum's famous figures, the professor and his deaf-mute sculptor, Igor (a young Charles Bronson -- still billed as Charles Buchinsky), arouse suspicion. The 3-D process is really the star, but ironically, Andre de Toth, the film's director, had only one good eye, and he had to constantly ask his cast and crew if the 3-D effects worked. The poster had minor fold and border wear. The restoration was done very well and the poster displays beautifully. Very Fine on Linen,
