KENNETH STRICKFADEN VARIABLE TRAVELING ARC FROM YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN - This elaborate device was called the “Variable Traveling Arc” by Strickfaden, which is composed of an interior plastic tube surrounded by tiered circular rings flanked by three vertical metal rods topped with wooden insulators and brass balls. The unit rests on a transformer base, which is a square wooden box with six turned wooden insulators on top. The device appears in an altered form in Young Frankenstein, although elements of the Variable Traveling Arc were used in different configurations in various films dating back to the 1930's. In addition, this piece was used in Strickfaden's traveling science shows. Circular wooden base measures 18 in. diameter and stands 54 in. Untested. Fine condition.
