Rondo Hatton Watch "The Tomb of Ligeia"

The tagline for Alice Cooper's current tour is, "They keep killing him and he keeps coming back!" The same could be said for Vincent Price's characters in all 5 Roger Corman/Edgar Allan Poe movies.

Price plays a man obssessed with his dearly departed wife, Ligeia. Verdon Fell (Price) later meets a similar woman who resembles his late wife. Things get confusing and sick, until Fell unravels the mystery of his own mind.

"The Tomb of Ligeia" is the most natural looking of the Poe/Corman/Price series. Shot on the London countryside, "The Tomb of Ligeia" makes the most of the exterior shots. A fine curtain call for the Poe/Corman/Price partnership.
