The Invisible Man - 1933 - Claude Rains, Gloria Stuart - Watched this with my Dad when I was about 10 and have loved it ever since. Bonus fun: Gloria Stuart as a lovely young leading lady, decades prior to being a sassy old woman in Titanic.
House of Wax - Directed by André De Toth. With Vincent Price, Frank Lovejoy, Phyllis Kirk, Carolyn Jones. An associate burns down a wax museum with the owner inside, but he survives only to become vengeful and murderous.
