DescriptionHouse of Wax (Warner Bros., 1953). Fine/Very Fine. Lobby Card Set of 8 (3-D) (11" X 14"), Window Card (3-D (14" X 22"), & One Sheet (2-D) (27" X 41"). This simplified (but lavish) remake of the 1933 melodrama The Mystery of the Wax Museum was the most financially successful 3-D production of the 1950s. Vincent Price stars in his first true horror role as Professor Henry Jarrod, the owner of a wax museum showcasing exhibits with all too real characteristics. Offered in this lot is a 3-D style lobby card set of 8, a window card 3-D style, and a non-3-D one sheet. The #8 card is signed by Vincent Price, and the #7 card is signed by Phyllis Kirk. All the cards and the window card are in excellent condition. The one sheet has fold wear, pinholes and bits of paper loss. Heritage Auctions believes that the autographed items in this lot are authentic, but know before bidding that no Certificate of Authenticity is provided.
