    • In addition to Roger Corman's famous 1960 film version (mentioned in the review), Poe's classic story was also the basis of a British B-movie of 1949, directed by Ivan Barnett and starring a young actress newly out of drama school and calling herself "Gwendoline Watford". (She soon shortened her forename to "Gwen" and became a British TV star and award-winner during the 1950s.) There was also a famous silent film of the story made in France in 1928. It ran just 48 minutes and was directed by Jean Epstein. His assistant, soon to become a famous director himself, was Luis Bunuel.
