THE SCREEN

Poe. This one sounds implausible, but everyone from George Eastman (collaborating on a version of The Fall of the House of Usher) to Roger Corman (Tales of Terror) has done Poe, so who knows. It's Spirits of the Dead, a collection of three Poe short stories, directed by Fellini, Louis Malle and......Roger Vadim. Starring Jane Fonda and Brigitte Bardot. The original title for this was apparently Histories Extraordinaires, but the simple change to Extraordinary Stories, or even Strange Tales, must have been deemed unsuitable.
