“…And Now Was Acknowledged The Presence Of The Red Death…”

…He Had Come Like A Thief In The Night. And One By One Dropped The Revelers In The Blood-Bedewed Halls Of Their Revel, And Died Each In The Despairing Posture Of His Fall…

…And The Life Of The Ebony Clock Went Out With That Of The Last Of The Gay. And The Flames Of The Tripods  Expired. And Darkness And Decay And The Red Death Held Illimitable Dominion Over All.

THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH

“And Now Was Acknowledged The Presence Of The RED DEATH. He Had Come Like A Thief In The Night. …”

…And One By One Dropped The Revelers In The Blood-Bedewed Halls Of Their Revel, And Died Each In The Despairing Posture Of His Fall. And The Life Of The Ebony Clock Went Out With That Of The Last Of The Gay. And The Flames Of The Tripods Expired. And Darkness And Decy AND The RED DEATH Held Illimitable Dominion Over All.

The Masque Of The Red Death

(Not So) Random Movie Mention: THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH (1964)

The Lone Reason I Have For Calling This Bloggin’ing “(Not So) Random…” Is That I’m Actually Watching The Film, “THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH”, As I Write This 😀 Every Actor Has Their Favorite Role, or Character, They’ve Had The Good Fortune To Play. For VINCENT PRICE, He Was Overheard On More Than One Occasion Making Statements Over Basically How Much Fun He Had Playing The Evil “PRINCE PROSPERO”!!!

The Original Story Of “THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH” Was Written By Another ALL-TIME FAVE-FAVE, Mr. EDGAR ALLAN POE. As LAURENCE OLIVIER Was To WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, So Was VINCENT PRICE To EDGAR ALLAN POE, Fo SHO Fo SHO! If You’d Ask Me For A Film Recommendation Based Off Of A Classic POE-PENNED-TALE, You’d Be Hard Pressed To Find One Better Than “THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH” I Promise You, Fo SHO Fo SHO Fo SHO!!! 😉
