UPA Week: The Tell-Tale Heart

Today's selection takes things in different directions in terms of both tone and style: 1954's " The Tell-Tale Heart," directed by Ted Parmalee, adapted by Bill Scott and Fred Grable from the Edgar Allen Poe story, and narrated by James Mason. This was not only an Academy Award nominee (losing out to Disney's famous "Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom," which is pretty great, but come on!), but was also named to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2001.

It's good, is what I'm saying, and I'm betting you haven't seen much like this before.
