Description:

This is a German language poster for the 1963 film "The Raven" directed by Roger Corman and starring Boris Karloff, Vincent Price, Peter Lorre, Hazel Court, and Jck Nicholson. The plot, which involves battling wizards, bears little resemblance to Poe's poem of the same name, which is the supposed inspiration. TIME Magazine called the film "a sappy little parody of a horror picture cutely calculated to make children scream with terror and their parents scream with glee."
