The original Edgar Allan Poe story is based on the real-life murder of Mary Cecilia Rogers, who was found floating in the Hudson River near Weehawken, NJ. Poe transplanted the events to Paris and placed the case in the hands of amateur detective C. Auguste Dupin. In a weird twist, Poe's ultimate conclusion as to the circumstances of the crime were proved correct when the murderers confessed well after "The Mystery of Marie Roget" was published. See more »
With all due respect to the last person who commented on this movie. I fear what the reviewer does not realize is that Marie Roget is a Poe story. In fact, Poe created the crime story. While I have not seen the movie, I feel it is important to point out that the reviewer claims the movie relies on the 'dumb cop can't figure it out, so he relies on the old smart detective to solve the crime plot' while not realizing that Poe not only created the plot, this main detective Dupin is the genesis of it. Yes, Dupin is the predecessor of Sherlock Holmes. I did notice that some changes were made in the character names, and I do not doubt that the movie is sub par. However, it is important to note that this story and the other two Poe crime stories ares what lead to the great noir films of the 40's
