John Astin Performs "The Raven" By Edgar Allan Poe

Here is the first interpretation of three of "The Raven" that I want to share. John Astin -- who looks SO much like Poe it's uncanny -- offers a far different reading than the one by Vincent Price. Astin's performance seems --appropriately-- more like that of a poet's, rather than an actor's, interpretation. But Price's is more satisfying -- to me, anyway. Price performs all the emotions in the lines, not just some of them.
