A wax museum run by a demented doctor contains statues of such crime figures as Jack the Ripper and Bluebeard. In addition to making wax statues the doctor performs plastic surgery. It is here that an arch fiend takes refuge. The museum also houses a statue of Charlie. Frustrated number-two son kicks statue in rear; oops, number-two son wrong in his assumption. Written by

When Inspector Matthews comes in through the museum window, his coat is wet from the thunderstorm outside. Seconds thereafter, although his face still has rain dripping from it, his coat is now dry. See more »

I want the best face you ever made just so's I can walk up to Chan and say, "Hiya, Charlie" before I let him have it.

This is another fine example of how good Toler can be in a Chan film if he is surrounded by spooky atmosphere, a good supporting cast, and a fine script. Most of the movie takes place inside the wax museum providing a great back drop for all the goings on. This is one of the best of the series. Good to watch on a rainy night.
