While we are out: Fall of the House of Usher

In case it’s not self-evident, we’re keeping summer hours, when we’re keeping hours at all. The Smart Set is on vacation till Labor Day, and I’m trying to see visiting friends, stay on top of the day job, and meet a slew of freelance deadlines while in the midst of some incredibly banal and incredibly time-consuming travails.

I’ll post as frequently as time and energy permit. Meanwhile, in honor of the fellow Poe fan at A Public Space, please enjoy these two 1928 films based on “The Fall of the House of Usher.”
