This was a pilot for a period detective program from Warner Bros. entitled "House of Wax", padded out with various gimmicks including the red "fear flash" and "horror horn", several added sequences and guest stars with a larger screen in mind because it was considered too intense at that time for television.

Cameo: Tony Curtis as a gambler.

In addition to being obviously inspired by "House Of Wax", this film uses several sets designed for the 1953 film, including the House of Wax itself.

Last film of Suzy Parker.
