Escape's "A Study in Wax" takes place in a snowbound cabin in the northern Canadian wilderness. The story is set at Christmas-time, but it isn't a typical Christmas tale. This is a story about two coworkers, alone in the Arctic, who must endure each other's company for seven months.
As the story opens in late October, the two men watch a government supply boat depart. They have been left behind to work on a Canadian geodetic survey, and now, they are on their own until the spring. Adding to their isolation is the accidental loss of their radio transmitter. With no connection to the outside world, one of them slowly goes mad.
Two years later, Antony Ellis presented this story again on Suspense. William Conrad and Stacy Harris again appeared as Jack and Larry. This episode aired on August 16, 1955.
