Poe Film Series

Mon, October 12, 2009 • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM • Harry Ransom Center

"The Pit and the Pendulum"

The Poe Film Series continues at the Harry Ransom Center with Roger Corman's "The Pit and the Pendulum" (1961), starring Vincent Price.

Based on Poe's classic short story, "The Pit and the Pendulum" tells the tale of Francis Barnard, who travels to Spain to investigate his sister's sudden death and is unconvinced by the explanation given by her husband, the son of a notorious Spanish Inquisition torturer.

The screening is held in conjunction with the Ransom Center's exhibition "From Out That Shadow: The Life and Legacy of Edgar Allan Poe."

This event is made possible by The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest.
