The Tell-Tale Heart

SALUTE TO EDGAR ALLAN POE

James Mason delivers the chilling first-person narration for this dark, visually stylish 1953 animation. It’s based on Edgar Allan Poe’s tale of a deranged lodger who becomes obsessed with killing his landlord, believing him to possess an “evil eye.” ┬áMade by the UPA, the same studio that gave us Mr. Magoo, this short was Oscar-nominated for best animation, but also was the first cartoon to receive an X-rated (suitable for adults only) under the British Board of Film Censors classification system.
