the tell-tale heart
This is a video of the 1953 adaptation of the Edgar Allan Poe short-story “The Tell-Tale Heart”, narrated by James Mason.
It’s adapted by Bill Scott and Fred Grable, and directed by Ted Parmelee.
The animation is by Pat Matthews.
I discovered this tonight on YouTube. YouTube has its share of dross, but it saves itself by offering up gems like this.
Saw this in tweetstream just now. I’m supposed to be working this morning – it’s Monday!! But this is incredible, James Mason is such a perfectly cast voice for this. A real gem – thanks Maura. Work can wait 8 minutes. Well, maybe 16, if I watch it twice…
I aim to provide only good-quality distractions! 🙂
I’m glad you enjoyed it.
