the origin of the Argentinian segment
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

The Argentinian segment was one of the three stories, from works by Edgar Allan Poe, which formed the movie "Obras Maestras del Terror" (litterally: Masterworks of Terror), directed by Enrique Carreras and released in Argentina in July 1960. When this film was released in the United States by Jack H. Harris, this segment was cut from the movie, which was reduced to 61 minutes (from 115 !!!) and its well-known American title is "Master of Horror".

Famous Argentinian actor Narciso Ibanez Menta appeared in all three segments in different roles (and is, of course, although uncredited, in the Argentinian footage of "Legend of Horror". The "young man" is his son, Narciso Ibanez Serrador, which became a famous director in Spain. It was rumored that Narciso Ibanez Menta was in fact the true director of the movie, as Enrique Carreras never made something similar in his other works. The three Poe-adapted stories were "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Truth About the Case of Mr. Valdemar" (both in "Master of Horror", and "The Tell-Tale Heart" (recycled in "Legend of Horror'.
