366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 9


The Date: October 9

The Movie: Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933)

What Is It?: Lionel Atwill is a wax sculptor who goes cuckoo after his beloved creations melt in a museum fire. Full of jazzy attitude and the urban setting is a welcome break from the usual Gothic castles of the era's horror films. The primitive use of color adds an extra queasy touch. I hope you have a high tolerance for pink and green.

Why Today?: Today is Fire Prevention Day.
