PREMATURE BURIAL - Ron Stein - "Molly Malone" (1962)

"Premature Burial" is an interesting Edgar Allen Poe interpretation that has the traditional Irish anthem, "Molly Malone" whistled & in various incarnations throughout the movie, being as it is the song that haunts Ray Milland literally to death. This version is the wackiest, as it gets all crazy & twisted until Ray is face to face with gravdigger Mole, played by none other than our hero, Dick Miller. By the way, just in case you didn't know, it goes something like this: "In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty, I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone"

Atypical Corman, with Milland stepping in for Vincent Price this time.
