Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" Performed by Vincent Price:

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the above with my students this week, and was prompted to share it here thanks to this post by the Young Fogey — Vincent Price on racism and religious prejudice. "Not just PC but simply decency from a golden age."

This was great. The entire 1-hour television film -- An Evening of Edgar Allan Poe, produced in the early 1970s -- can be found on the flip side of the DVD for Roger Corman's excellent 1964 film adaptation of Poe's Ligeia (the film is called The Tomb of Ligeia).

I love Poe, I love Vincent Price, and I highly recommend Roger Corman's stylish Poe films of the 1960s -- along w/The Tomb of Ligeia, one ought to see The House of Usher, The Masque of the Red Death, and The Pit and the Pendulum.

The comedy-horror film, The Raven, directed by Corman, starring Price, Boris Karloff, and Peter Lorre, has little to do with Poe -- well, there IS a raven -- but is well worth seeing anyway.
