Chuck Norris is there--brandishing his "Delta Force" firepower, battling Arab terrorists. Sly Stallone is on hand in a triumphant "Rocky IV" pose, wearing his red-white-blue trunks, plus muscles. Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming--in his "Terminator" get-up. And let's not overlook Gavin MacLeod, wearing his captain's togs on a gently rocking "Love Boat."
It's all in the name of bringing the Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park up to date, explains Terry Thrift, museum director of marketing. To make way for the new means getting rid of the old--"stars that people just don't know anymore."
Thus, John, Ethel and Lionel Barrymore--depicted in a scene from "Rasputin and the Emperor" (the only film that starred the trio)--are headed for cold storage. Their replacements: (Nyuk! Nyuk! Woo! Woo!) the Three Stooges!
"Lots of kids wonder why they aren't here already," said Thrift. "Figure, the Three Stooges are on TV every Saturday morning. But who ever sees the Barrymores?"
