3D Followup to House of Wax
At a tender age when Hollywood battled home television by offering movie-goers 3D and then CinemaScope (to say nothing of Cinerama!), I begged my family to take me to every 3D movie. In retrospect I can only admire their stoicism at sitting through this surfeit of corny flicks. (The only truly good movies made in 3D must have been Kiss Me Kate and Dial M For Murder. The rest were usually horror or action to utilize the unique ability of the actors to jump out of the screen or throw something directly at you.)

Anyway, I loved House of Was and when I saw the newspaper ads for The Mad Magician, my whining began. Five decades later, I've reseen it several times "flat" on television and can only wish someone would create a viable method to put 3D movies on DVD or home video. (When House of Wax was re-released in the early '80's to usher in that attempt to interest audiences in the 3D process, the aids claimed "You've never seen House of Wax if you haven't seen it in 3D!" and to a great extent that is true.

The process added to the fun of these campy movies. Incidentally "Magician" is in black & white but still looks great. By all means check it out if you like the shlocky type of B horror flicks which inundated audiences in the '50's & early '60's.
