Photograph was edited for publication purposes. Photograph article dated May 9, 1963 partially reads, "The Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park can be an emotional experience - at least for a long-time movie fan. Two distinct emotions should strike the visitors while touring the beautiful, softly lit museum - if he reacts as I did. The first - sadness - comes with the realization that so many of the more than 80 wax figures are of stars who have died or retired from the film-making business... But while the slight feeling of sadness prevails, there is also a feeling of exhilaration that generations to come will be able to look at a slice of real American history, and the persons who helped make it." Note: Photograph caption reads, "It's Bardot!"; See images #00130717 through #00130720 for all photos in this series.
