Description

Short Story:


Murders in the Rue Morgue (1841)


Film:


Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932)


 


The 1932 pre-Hays film and second film to star Bela Lugosi was originally cut due to violent themes upon its initial release. The film is directed by Robert Florey.


 


The expressionistic style of the film would give a nod to the German expressionistic style made famous in Germany.  


 


The director wanted to keep as close to Edgar Allan Poes story as possible in keeping with the 1840's setting of Paris but Universal would not agree so the film was given an update to reflect the time.  Universal would push for more romance and sex appeal as subplots. 


 


We are joined by Rod Labbe and special guest co-host Angela Dyson, author of the Love Detective series.  You can follow Angela Dyson via her Website:  or via her Facebook:  or via Twitter:
