That's easily my favorite Poe story.
Wasn't there a Vincent Price version?

There's that one film with Vincent Price that I'm rather fond of.

EDIT: Oops, didn't notice Purpleoscar's post starting a new page there.

1960 -- House of Usher
You get the great Vincent Price, a Les Baxter score and a Richard Matheson screenplay.

Watch it alone... if you dare !!

By the way, and not that anyone actually notices/cares, but the reason I'm not participating in what I find to be a series of interesting threads is that I am currently a work in progress as it pertains to a lot of older/foreign films. I just don't think that my list as of today will look anything like it will in a year, nor does it resemble the list I'd have compiled 6 months ago. I know that such a thing goes for everyone, our tastes evolve and the # of films we watch grows....but I'm making my way through some true classics and some of them would definitely appear on my lists.

That being said, I have read every post in every related thread and will continue to do so until you all are done. I appreciate the differing perspectives, to say the least.

Also, the next few decades find me on my firmest ground, but I'll still abstain at this point.

Anyway, I'm enjoying this, glad you guys are doing this.

Clearly someone didn't get the Glengarry Glen Ross reference.

Which, frankly, is unforgivable.

Horrid.

My bad.

My only excuse is that the Yankee game is freaking me out.

I'd wish you good luck but you wouldn't know what to do with it if you got it. And to answer your question, pal, why am I here? I came here because Mitch and Murray asked me to, they asked me for a favor. I said, the real favor, follow my advice and fire your fucking ass because a loser is a loser.

I can't believe Jack Lemmon wasn't nominated for that film, especially when Pacino was acknowledged for his contribution to it. He was easily better than anyone else that year with the exception of Denzel, certainly moreso than the hammy Pacino for Scent of a Woman.

I thought every performance was spot on. Lemmon had the most weight to carry, though.
