The scenes are "burned" into my memories, but not the title?!

What's-that-movie time! Featured character: a man wrapped in full-body bandages because he was in a fire.

I saw this movie during the early 90's, and it was on TV. I'm guessing it was made during the 80's or even as far back as the 70's. There's only two scenes I remember:
- The scene where the main character is in his pre-fire condition. I think he had a close-trimmed beard, dark-haired. He's kind of sitting up with some difficulty, like he's tied down, and watches one of those bird-shaped tipping thingies with a top-hat (no idea what they're called) swing down and hit a lighter with its beak, causing it to ignite and set the whole place and him on fire. I remember him screaming offscreen when it happens.
- Another scene where he's talking to a woman. He's completely wrapped up in bandages now, and talks with a lisp. You can see one of his eyes staring out crazily, and the bandages are slightly bloodied. He's wearing a black coat. The woman was either blonde or brunette, possibly the former, and she looks a bit flipped-out (not surprisingly).
Can anyone identify this movie? It's quite possible it's some B-movie. Sorry I can't get a better description or more scenes; I was maybe 6 or 7 when I saw this. Maybe even younger.
