Get In The Mood for Halloween with James Mason Reading The Tell-Tale Heart


I just came across this earlier this morning.  This short, animated film is from 1953 and it features James Mason reading a story from America’s first master of suspense, Edgar Allan Poe!

Here, for your listening and visual enjoyment, is The Tell Tale Heart!  Along with featuring the voice of James Mason, the film was directed by Ted Parmlee.  It was the first animated film to ever be given an X rating by the British Film Board of Censors.

  1. James Mason has such an incredible voice! He also had a terrific acting career – two of my favorites being “Lolita” and “The Last Of Sheila” – if you haven’t heard of that one, I have profiled it on my blog – an incredible 70’s murder mystery written by Composer Stephen Sondheim and “Psycho” star Anthony Perkins, with a cast including Raquel Welch, James Coburn, Dyan Cannon and Richard Benjamin!
