House of Wax premieres in New York City in 1953. Promoted as the first major studio color feature in 3D, and a remake of 1933’s Mystery of the Wax Museum, it stars Vincent Price and is directed by Andre DeToth, whose blindness in one eye left him unable to perceive the film’s 3D effects. Though met with mixed box office and critical support on its release, the film is now considered a classic.
