Here we see the tableau from the 1939 motion picture Lady of the Tropics. Wax figures of stars Robert Taylor and Hedy Lamarr pose in this small and simple scene. The lighting on each of the the figure's faces makes them look distorted and sort of nonhuman.
A wider shot highlights the entire tableau.
A close up of Taylor and Lamarr. In 1933, Hedy Lamarr caused quite a stir when she posed topless in the Czechoslovakian film Ecstasy.
At the 2006 Movieland auction, the Hedy Lamarr figure sold for $1200, and the Robert Taylor figure sold for $300. The set sold for $1500.
