Synopsis

In 1920s London, a great fire destroys the London Wax Museum after an argument between the sculptor Henry Jarrod (Lionel Atwill) and his financial partner. Twelve years later in New York, the day before a wax museum opens there, a girl's body disappears from the morgue and a statue with an uncanny likeness turns up in the museum. A reporter meets the now crippled Jarrod, who develops an unhealthy infatuation with the reporter's room-mate, who resembles a Marie Antoinette statue lost in the London fire. This is the first version of a story remade in 3D as the 'House of Wax' in 1953.
