The Mystery of Marie Roget

Ten years after Edgar Allan Poe’s The Murders in the Rue Morgue made the big screen in 1932; The Mystery of Marie Roget finally appeared on screen in 1942. Things work much faster today in Hollywood. I know off the top of my head I can’t think which movie sequels are ten years apart anymore, I’m sure there have been some over time though. Fancy that, YouTube has a movie trailer for this Edgar Allan Poe story as well. Here is the trailer for The Mystery of Marie Roget posted by YouTube user unannounced72.

While there is no record of a Purloined Letter movie that I am familiar with, I did find a silent movie of Edgar Allan Poe’s third short detective story. For fun here are links to the silent two part feature of the Purloined Letter by the 8th Grade English class of YouTube user melvidouglas.
