Raiders Of The Lost Ark Face Melting Candle

Arnold Ernst Toht. Recognise the name? No? Well, you’ll certainly know the face, or at least what’s left of it…
 
Old Arnold was the pugnacious Gestapo agent who had his face melted off at the end of Raiders Of The Lost Ark (played by Brit actor Ron Lacey), making for one of the most gruesome moments in mainstream cinema when his Nazi goons pried open the Ark of the Covenant and released the malevolent cloudy forces which swiftly reduced him to a gooey, skeletal mess.
 
That incredible effect from the first Indiana Jones film wasn't achieved with CGI, either, but rather a wax work of alginate - the same material dentists use to take impressions of your teeth. And now you can relive that potential childhood trauma once more thanks to the makers of this Melting Thot Candle, available for £19.99 on Firebox and perfect for any household.
 
Because nothing says ‘living room ambiance’ quite like the half-melted face of an evil Nazi.
