    Yeah @TheMajor! Look what the trivia of IMDb says "Luis Buñuel, who was Assistant Director, quit the picture after clashing with producer/director Jean Epstein over Epstein's decision to basically ignore Edgar Allan Poe's story". Beautiful and dark soundtrack though! 5 years 7 months ago

    Beautiful to watch, but... I assumed that Edgar Allan Poe's highly descriptive and imaginary tales would benefit from a visualized adaptation like this, but the narrative aspect really suffers. Although I have not seen many silent adaptations of his works, silent film may not be the best medium. His tales are best read and visualized in the mind. A film of his works could use a little more darkness, horror and tension. 5 years 10 months ago
