Artist Harry Clarke's Influence on Two Vincent Price Film Posters


An original studio still featuring poster art by prolific artist Reynold Brown for the 1960 Roger Corman film House of Usher. The image of Madeline Usher in her coffin was clearly inspired by Harry Clarke's 1919 illustration for Poe's story The Premature Burial, below.

Nine years later, Clarke's image would further 'inspire' the poster art for Gordon Hessler's The Oblong Box (AIP, 1969), below.
