* AdaptationDisplacement: Most people don't know about ''Film/MysteryOfTheWaxMuseum'', though it didn't help that it was thought to be lost until a print turned up in the late 1960s, and it was not fully restored until the 1980s. ([[EmbeddedPrecursor It's a bonus feature on the 1953 film's DVD.]])
* HilariousInHindsight: Jarrod's description of his new career now sounds like LeaningOnTheFourthWall, in light of the turn Vincent Price's career soon took.
-->'''Jarrod:''' I'm going to give the people what they want: sensation, horror, shock... Send them out in the streets to tell their friends how wonderful it is to be scared to death.
* TheyJustDidntCare: The director, Andre de Toth, was ''[[DeafComposer blind in one eye]]'' (he had a glass eye then and wore an eyepatch in his later years). Apparently the studio higher-ups didn't think depth perception was a requirement for making a 3D movie.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Jarrod. The museum he adored and poured his heart and soul into is destroyed because of his partner's greed; he himself is horribly disfigured and while he doesn't totally lose use of his hands, can't sculpt the way he used to.
