Even though the concept was first developed in 1915, films with 3D effects have been captivating audiences for over 60 years. In the 1950s, there was a brief infatuation that would die down and not be fully awakened until the last few years. These films were ahead of their time and brought in large numbers of awestruck fans.
3D Hits in the 1950s
In 1953, after much success in the film business, Warner Bros. created what would become one of the first big 3D hits. The remake of a 1933 film (Mystery of the Wax Museum) inspired their new creation House of Wax. There were some intense 3D scenes such as during the wax museum fire and when a shadowy figure jumped out at the audience. The movie did not contain a lot of three dimensional effects, but the few it had left audiences riveted and wanting more. One of the highest grossing films of that year, House of Wax earned around $5.5 million at the North American box offices.
