Happy Birthday to POE!


He'd have been 202 today!

Here's the Academy Award-nominated 1953 adaptation of "The Tell-Tale Heart" by UPA Studios, and narrated by James Mason:



Here's a recent, well done video adaptation of "Annabel Lee," though the word "sepulcher" is consistently mispronounced.

I had to post these on my Livejournal and Facebook. I especially enjoyed "The Telltale Heart." Thank you, and happy Poe's birthday to you and the Voodoo Queen!

Cool, Max!

I had the honor of taking part in a salute to the two "200 year birthday boys" - Abe & Edgar - at 2009's FOTR.

And speaking of OTR...

Here's a great SUSPENSE version of "The Pit and the Pendulum" starring Henry Hull and scored by Bernard Herrman:
