The Murders in the Rue Morgue

Edgar Allan Poe’s The Murders in the Rue Morgue made the big screen. Here is a preview of two movie trailers, forty years apart. I don’t know which movie I’d prefer seeing more, perhaps the 1932 classic black and white version with Bela Lugosi, Sidney Fox and Leon Ames would be my cup of tea. It might be as good as reading the story the first time, full of a bit of humor at the audacity of the story. The trailer was posted on YouTube by ClassicMovieTrailers.

The second known movie of The Murders in the Rue Morgue is in 1971 starring Jason Robards and Herbert Lom. A bit creepier, much like those 70′s movies are…at least when you watch them today. Here is the movie trailer posted by YouTube user professorchampy.
