Upon coming to the statue of Joseph Guillotin, the wax museum tour guide states that Guillotin was the first man to die in the device that bears his name. This is not true. Guillotin died of an infection twenty years after France's Reign of Terror. See more »

SANTO IN THE WAX MUSEUM (1963) **1/2 (D: Alfonso Corona Blake, Manuel San Fernando) Not bad as far as Santo films go. The masked man goes up against a mad doctor who kidnaps people and turns them into wax figures for his museum. Decent story, although (as usual) there are needless wrestling matches padding it. Similar to HOUSE OF WAX.
