Product Description

Three renowned European directors (Federico Fellini, Roger Vadim and Louis Malle) each adapt a Poe short story to the screen: "Toby Dammit," (Fellini) featuring Terence Stamp as a disheveled drugged and drunk English movie star who nods acceptance in the Italian press and his producers fawn over him. "Metzengerstein" (Vadim) with Jane Fonda (Mrs. Vadim at the time) as a Mediveal countess who has a love-hate relationship with a black stallion - who, it turns out is really her dead lover (Peter Fonda). "William Wilson" (Malle) is a haunting story of a sadistic Austrian student (Alain Delon) with an exact double whom he later kills. Brigitte Bardot is whipped after losing a card game. Vincent Price narrates the English version.
