A stylish and faithful adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story. Narrated in first-person by James Mason, the main character calmly tells the police of an unnatural revulsion with his landlord's "strange" eye that leads him to murder the landlord and hide his dismembered body under the floorboards of a rooming house.

"DIR: Ted Parmelee SUMMARY: An animated version of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale of terror. WHY IT'S HERE: An adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story, UPA's 'The Tell-Tale Heart' was the first X-rated cartoon. It captures the subtly horrific atmosphere of Poe's narrative with a characteristically dramatic narration from James Mason but it is the innovative, minimal animation that really makes 'The Tell-Tale Heart' an unforgettable classic.
