Frankenstein's Photo Gallery at Movieland Wax Museum

One of the highlights of the Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, California was Frankenstein's Photo Gallery. Visitors could pose with the lovable large monster created by Dr. Frankenstein. The wax figure was a great likeness of Boris Karloff in his famous role. The first image is a black and white shot of two kids hanging out with Frankenstein's monster. Frankie looks so happy in this shot.

The second image is a nice color image and an older visitor. She really loves Frankie or is she choking him? Luckily for us, Frankie was undead and could not die due to choking. I wonder where this wax figure ended up during the auction of items from this tourist attraction?

The first image is great. The classic movie monsters are my favorite thing about Universal's history. Do they still capitalize on them at the Studios?

I have one of these souvenir pictures of my older brother (who was "monster crazy") sitting with "Frankie". We always liked the scary stuff. In my brother's photo, most of the fingers on the hands have (presumably) been broken off as souvenirs. I wonder if they replaced the hands on a regular basis?
