Ep. 03-28: The Raven (1935 & 1962)

DOUBLE FEATURE: The Raven (1935) – Dr. Vollin (Bela Lugosi) is a brilliant, unstable surgeon with a questionable obsession for instruments of torture. He saves the life of Judge Thatcher’s daughter, Jean, a beautiful young socialite injured in an automobile accident, and becomes increasingly attracted to her, enlisting the help of a wanted criminal, Edmund Bateman (Boris Karloff), to assist with a diabolical scheme. The Raven (1963) – Sorceror, Erasmus Craven (Vincent Price), is visited by Adolphus Bedlo (Peter Lorre), who has been turned into a raven by Dr. Scarabus (Boris Karloff), an evil wizard. After Craven transforms Bedlo back into a human, Bedlo claims to have seen Lenore, Craven’s dead wife, at Scarabus’ castle, prompting the two to seek Craven’s lost love.

Welcome to our fourth DOUBLE FEATURE of the season, and our first trip into the land of Edgar Allan Poe. In this episode we ponder adapting a film from a poem, question the choice of comedy (both intentional and unintentional), and break down the pros (few) and cons (many) for both these films. Join us as we critique these two vastly different films, one traditionally Universal, and the other a Roger Corman star-power fiasco. Listen, as Johnny Has the Keys escorts you into the literary world of Poe and his sublime poem The Raven, for two film adaptations we care to visit nevermore.
