This Day in Halloween: 3D thriller "Phantom of the Rue Morgue" opens across the U.S. in 1954. / Illustration by Jocelyne Reyes.
Phantom of the Rue Morgue opens across the U.S. in 1954. One of the string of 3D films made during the “Golden Age” of 3D in 1952-1955 and is based on Edgar Allan Poe’s Murders in the Rue Morgue and essentially a remake of the 1932 Bela Lugosi film. Rarely seen now, but a big hit on its release.
