    I love Edgar Allan Poe, especially "The Murders in The Rue Morgue", "The Mystery of Marie Rogêt" ,"The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" and "A Descent into the Maelström"

    Two questions on an interesting story:
    • Did anyone discover who left a bottle of whiskey on his grave every year on his birthday?
    • Is it still on going?

    I too enjoyed his work.

    It stopped for about 4 or 5 years but started again....it is cognac and three roses....presumably the person doing it couldn't anymore and they eventually got someone else to continue the tradition (and by They, probably the Baltimore Tourism Department or someone like that)

    I love Poe, Anabel Lee, The gold bug. What mystifies me, there is another thread with the same topic that just sort of vanished by the same OP. I love USMB, their servers, and all their internet hoodoo, I want to pet them like puppy dogs. And sometimes, puppy dogs do stupid things that make you want to smack them . But you don't.

    No that was a different OP from someone else, the thread wasn't about Edgar Allan Poe per se, but someone mentioned him and I was about to post what I post in this thread and then the whole thread didn't exist.

    Some of his stories made into black & white movies in the 50's and 60's with Vincent Price, scared the hell out of me when I was a kid.

    Yes they all were Roger Corman films.

    They earlier made in the 1930s some others, these from Universal. For instance "The Murders In The Rue Morgue" with Bela Lugosi.

    Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932 film) - Wikipedia

    "The Raven" with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff.

    The Raven (1935 film) - Wikipedia

    It's shocking that more earlier films were not made of Poe's stories, they're so rich in mystery and atmosphere, I don't know perhaps there was a problem getting permission from his Estate.

    Mysteries always need a solution, I found out that when you stop looking for something, that's when you find the truth.
