Movieland- Taming of the Shrew

Today's focus is back on the Movieland Wax Museum. The next display after you enter the museum is from The Taming of the Shrew with Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. I just love the expression on his face. This set deserved more than to be sold off. Douglas here sold for $1,000, while the set sold for $2,000.

Mary Pickford in the actual dress from the movie. There was so much history at this museum. It still makes me sad that it closed. Imagine dedicating the opening of the museum and having your wax figure being one of the first figures people see. Mary here sold for $3,250. A lot more than her partner Doug.

Every set had one of these giving information on the movie or television show portrayed. This one has more information than some of the newer displays.

Many of the figures moved to a sister wax museum at fisherman's wharf in San Francisco. Find out which figures moved by visiting the Wax Museum's website here.
