The Raven (1963)

so this movie I woke up early one Saturday morning (think 5 AM or so) and caught the last battle between the sorcerers. it's a really cool and funny battle between Vincent Price and Boris Karloff. one of the great things about TV back then is you didn't always know what you would see- schedules sometimes altered without any warning, especially monster movies in the middle of the night.

I loved the movie, at least the part I saw. I didn't see the entire thing for many years, but it didn't let me down when I finally did. I've always thought Doctor Strange was based on Vincent Price, though the character and the movie debuted the same year. it's ostensibly adapted from the Poe Poem, but highly elaborated upon.
