Vincent Price performs The Raven




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.
