Ominously Bubbling Vat

Re: THE BIG MOUTH, produced and directed by Jerry Lewis. Remember when I said I thought I remembered being terrified by it as a kid, in particular a scene in which a bad guy drops someone into an ominously bubbling vat? Dear reader, I was correct. Correct to be afraid! Except it was plastic, not wax (as formerly speculated). Furthermore, the person who was given the murderous bath of molten plastic was none other than George Takei (pictured) of STAR TREK fame. Mr. Sulu! Nooooooooo! No wonder my young mind was so irrevocably scarred.
