Images of Wax That Throbbed with Human Passion!.....Almost Woman! What Did They Lack?


Sculptor Ivan Igor struggles in vain to prevent his partner from burning his wax museum, and his "children".

People begin disappearing; Igor takes a sinister interest in Charlotte, fiancée of his assistant Ralph, but arouses the suspicions of roommate, wisecracking reporter Florence.
