Two-timer Tableaux in Wax!

We have a number of old stand-bys in our Monday night movie, Wax Museum, and all manage beautifully to create the spooky atmosphere of Dr. Cream's Museum of more than wax!

*I recognize the actor who plays Willie Fern in Wax Museum when he's played in other movies like The Runt in the early years of Boston Blackie; but he just doesn't look the same as the guy playing Rausch in The Scarlet Clue.
I'd appreciate anyone who can correctly identify whether the other actor IS some other actor to post the comment here.



I'd like to recommend a Boris Karloff movie today for your Halloween pleasure. It's one that I hadn't been able to get my hands on until relatively recently . . . The Devil Commands.
Karloff plays a scientist who is researching an early device similar to what a lie dectector does today.
The Devil Commands starts off like You'll Find Out in every day life but soon gets down to spook business!
definitely one of Boris Karloff's best, at least in my humble opinion!
