I adore Vincent Price, but Basil Rathbone's version is the one for the ages.
Basil Rathbone - The Raven
Another great Vincent Price performance:
It's a testament to ol' E.A. Poe that his work still finds so many a voice.
And while Price is nice and Basil can dazzle, I'm partial to this one, myself.
John Astin -The Raven
A real classic there, few modern actors could do that. The whole performance is epic, it's called "An Evening With Edgar Allan Poe" and I highly recommend it.
I show this every fall during our Edgar Allen Poe section of my "Horror and Fantasy Lit" unit of high school lit.
