He began producing and directing low budget. Independent films are getting the underserved teen market. What is films lacked in production value. They made up for imagination. And as roger famously declared he never lost a dime on a picture and he made a lot of them. From nineteen fifty. Five to nineteen seventy-one. He directed over fifty films. Everything from monster. Movies to biker. Pictures to his famous adaptations. The works of edgar allan poe.

The crab monster cost twelve hundred dollars and it was paper my shea but it was very big and it looked pretty good but we were shooting at on the rocks at cabrillo beach and the waves were hitting up against the monster and i could see the waves. Were destroying the back of the monster. So i had to shoot as fast as i possibly could and from only certain angles not to let the audience see that. The vaster was being destroyed. Well we shotted speaking monsters. Tell me about the monster from it. Conquered the world well. The monster from saturn was based upon my studies at the university where i studied physics and i tried within the fantastic world of science fiction to be as logical as possible and i realized a giant planet like saturn would have heavy gravity so therefore a giraffe could not exist but a turtle could because it was close to the ground and would be able to handle the gravity so i had the monster built all about the height of my hand here and thus say was physically correct for the planet saturn. I was having coffee as they were setting up the first shot and beverly garland very hip. Young actress came up to the monster and she looked and she noticed that i was watching her

Likely of berkey laos's edgar and his two siblings were separated but luckily edgar was taken in by the affluent. Alan family who lived in. Virginia john and francis were childless. Couple who lived in richmond. Francis had always wanted a family. But john didn't he already had at least one illegitimate son with a mistress but john himself was an orphan so he relented when it came to at. Your the couple never formally adopted him remaining his foster parents. Despite that formality the allens eventually gave edgar their name making him edgar allan poe. though. John didn't entirely warm up to him. Francis dotted on edgar as the sun. She'd always wanted so edgar still ended up with all the expected. Trappings of richmond high-society elegant clothing fancy vacations an education from english boarding schools in the classroom. Edgar showed an interest in writing early on by eighteen. Twenty the eleven year old had already amassed a whole notebook of poetry with dreams of at one day by eighteen twenty. Three fourteen year old edgar had his first crush. He was infatuated with his friends. Mother jane stanard went jon. Allen scolded him. The boy fled to jane's house located a few blocks away. She comforted him an edgar loved every minute call jane his first purely ideal love of my soul during the following spring. Though jane became very sick physically and mentally she died in april eighteen. Twenty four leaving fifteen year old edgar inconsolable. He often visited her grave with her son. Edgar wanted to remain close to her but soon he got more than he bargained for at night. He had visions of ghosts in his nightmares. He recounted these twisted dreams to his friends while sleeping. He felt ice cold hands on his face on another evening. Edgar was jerked awake and claimed he saw an evil face staring at him. It was unclear if either apparition was jane. These visions though cemented edgar's fear of darkness and the demons that lurk. It edgar's phobia and first heartbreak. Made him an especially angsty teen. He was melancholy and quiet. Diametrically opposing his foster father. John was a rigid realistic man. Who had no time for romance or dreams. He recognized edgar's writing talent but called the boy. Wayward and impulsive. John often reminded edgar that he was lucky. The allens took him in and everything in his life came from their charity as for edgar. He resented john for those reminders.

Couldn't know her father didn't approve of edgar status as a foster child. The royster is believed.

He also paid little mind to the universities ban on gambling tobacco and alcohol so for all its academic freedom. The prestigious college prohibited fun. The young adults attending uva saw this as a recipe for disaster but iger quickly learned that. No one took the band seriously gambling and booze. We're everywhere on campus student. Transgressions often turned violent. Students regularly fought. And you'll each other. Perhaps as a result the university of virginia had a high dropout rate only ten percent of students made it to their junior year this month. The cards were stacked against edgar but he tried to complete his education. He was sometimes the only student to showed up with completed assignments by the end of his first year. Edgar was awarded the highest honors since he breezed through his classwork. He's used his free time to pine for his fiancee. Elmira and work on his writing edgar even shared his short stories and poetry with friends like many writers. He was sensitive but unlike his peers his reactions were often extreme one time. He burned the manuscript in response to criticism during another confrontation. Edgar got into a fistfight to calm his nerves. He started drinking edgar struggled to pay his way through college. Although his foster father was a wealthy man he sent edgar to uva with less than the required amount for classes and living expenses by eighteen. Twenty six edgar estimated that he needed at least five hundred dollars to cover his basic expenses about thirteen thousand dollars today. Edgar had already used up the one hundred ten dollars from the allens. He was all out of money. He blamed his foster father.

Brothers might have told her what happened and she stayed away to avoid implicating them. With, that doesn't square with the fax. By the time Myra learned Poe was dead. He was already being prepared for burial. Up until she saw the news and the paper, she had no reason to suspect that anything was the matter and even if she did know about posed death skipping the funeral would only make her look more suspicious. It's unlikely she behaved. So strangely in an effort to protect her brother's. Hose crime. Fiction may be far fetched, but it was never as full of plot holes, distortions and wild speculation as this narrative it almost feels disrespectful that a conspiracy theory with such flawed logic has been applied to one of the greatest detective writers of all time. Not, to mention that, Walsh's book was not a hit with other Poe biographers and historians. An Essay published by the Edgar Allan Poe Society of Baltimore described it as a wild flurry of speculation with very little in the way of facts. And at the end of the day I don't find his story very convincing. On a scale of one to ten I give conspiracy theory number two three. That's generous. I. Give it a one.

"Few years later in Chicago vote early and vote often. The cooped man might vote as many as sixteen times in one election under sixteen identities and Poe was found in someone else's clothes after going MIA for several days. That fits just a little too well. Dr Miran described the writer state of dress when he was admitted to the hospital as a stained faded old porzingis. pantaloons of a similar character, a pair of worn out shoes run down at the heels and old Straw hat. Clothes which were easy for thugs to get their hands on, though poor, Edgar Allan Poe was known for always dressing well in keeping his neat appearance, he wouldn't be caught dead dress like that until he was, but here's the problem with Dr Miran and Qiuping Dr Moran.

Him By that reasoning Poe could have for all we know gone to Baltimore to more in Virginia one last time before getting remarried headed drinker to somehow drunkenly injured himself, and then collapsed on the street, but morning Virginia doesn't line up with the fact that he was wearing someone else's clothes, a hallmark of Qiuping. It's important to note that Qiuping was very very common at the time so common that even the local Baltimore paper the Republican. An artist featured dire warnings leading up to the election October first eighteen, forty nine. Wear the WIG tricks. Our opponents are at their old game again. Tickets are out with their candidates and the hickory emblem. Colonization on a large scale as to be resorted to. Illegal votes will be pulled from a distance and otherwise hoops have been started by them all this and more. The whigs are doing see Democrats that they do not succeed. Let us all be on the alert. October third, eighteen, forty nine. Democrats of the fourth ward protect your rights. Yours is the war that will receive the great mass of foreign weeks. It is in your. D- that, they expect to swell the vote. Into where was found right outside the fourth ward polls, the theory was first asserted as Edgar. Allan Poe's cause of death by publisher John Thompson in the eighteen seventies and has maintained popularity ever since so, who would that make pos killer? The men who cooped him? The American political system. Or the men who won the elections that day. Let's see that year John. Ht Jerome was elected mayor of Baltimore and Senator James Pierce was elected to represent Maryland in the Senate Jerome was awake Anne Pierce was also a wig, so it was the week party, seeking power through unjust means in the blame could fall on the party or the mayor and senator who profited from Qiuping, not as direct killers, but as conspirators, but the real blame would fall on members of the political games themselves who are sadly impossible to track down assuming they did it. There is one more piece to this puzzle. Reynaud. Reynolds see Dr. he calls and calls for this. Reynolds Fellow vitals steady. D-. How do you feel Mr Pope Roads? Here now Mr Poe have some water. And perhaps after you can sleep. There satellite we showed deduce who this is and contact them at a time other than three o'clock in the morning. Mr Pope most likely requires rest. The last clue in the mystery is reynolds the name. Poe called out in delirium from his deathbed. Before we get into that I want to take a minute to talk about our sponsor. After, the break will examine the possible figures who could have been reynolds, and conclude our theory on who killed Edgar Allan Poe. Now. Let's return to the mysterious reynolds. The first theory about Reynolds is that it's a reference to Jeremiah Reynolds an explorer and advocate for the exploration of the polar ice caps, Jeremiah Reynolds was inspiration for the narrative of Arthur Gordon, pin, Poe's only novel, calling for Reynolds Poe could have been reflecting on his life's work, or it could have been hallucinating that he was once again writing some think it was a poetic reference to entering the unknown territory of death like Reynolds encouraged explorers. Explorers to enter the unknown Arctic. If we're getting poetic reynolds sounds a lot like renounce award US twice in the pledge of the of temperance, the anti alcohol group Poe joined shortly before his engagement to Elmira royster Shelton so if Paul was force fed alcohol by thugs who cooped him, or if he fell off a wagon when morning Virginia, he may have been worried about being kicked out of the sons of temperance and angering his fiancee. Are Maybe. We're taking this too far. Perhaps Reynolds was just a person. Poe encountered somebody he wanted to see again and did research into historical records proves that prominent Baltimore Carpenter and election judge was at the ward for polls. His name Henry Reynolds so perhaps it was posed garbled way of saying he was cooped. Trying to clue in his doctors, the demand named. Reynolds. Had The answers love ciphers? Oh speaking of CIPHERS. There's one more Reynolds Poe may have been talking about. But in order to discuss it properly with to discuss of Poe's tales, the second of his see, August do pine stories. As, we discussed earlier in the investigation. See August do. Pine was a character who solve murder mysteries and the forerunner to Sherlock Holmes and every other literary detective. Poe followed up his first massively successful. Do Pintail murders in the rue morgue with the mystery of Marie Row J.? The story is framed as an article and recounts the Narrators Conversation with C. August do pine, as do pine analyzed the murder of a Parisian shop girl, but what's really interesting is the murder of Marie Rochet is directly parallel to real life murder and we mean directly post. Story is actually an analysis of the death of Mary Rogers a beautiful teenage new. Yorker found dead in the Hudson shortly before Poe published the story. Every detail is identical with only names and locations changed Poe. Even goes as far as saying in the text that the case of Marie Rosia is much like that of Mary Rogers. Hanging lamp shade on it smart. Since Mary Rogers, murder was all over the tabloid newspapers, and the inspiration would've been obvious to readers, and she was like the Jon Benet Ramsey of the time now it's worth pointing out that what Paul did with the mystery of Marie. Rochet was not common. Though all over the papers, true crime wasn't the entertainment genre. It is now Edgar Allan Poe was actually the first writer to use a real crime to create entertainment. You could call the father of this podcast. or at least the mascot now are following investigation into the story does include spoilers so out of respect for true crime. Loving fans will give you a moment to read post story before tuning back in. Okay, so in the tale of Marie row. Do. Pine pins the blame for the girl's murder on a these sailor, what? I was thinking it was reynolds. Patient will get to Reynolds in a minute..

Post funeral was three minutes total, simply one more sad turn in his story, but that here that wasn't buried with him, took on quite a life of its own after post, cousin Rebecca herring distributed to relatives and pose admirers Lana. That sounds pretty. Creepy Surprisingly was a common practice. This was shortly after it was discovered that keeping your dearly departed dead body on a table for a week, and then bearing them in the backyard was very unsanitary, but people still felt the need for a physical connection with their dead relatives and friends, so here would be collected and put in a wallet or tape to the back of a portrait. The practice started with saints and religious icons, but by the mid eighteenth century it had stoop to the level of pretty much anyone since posed death locks of his hair have turned in addison. Across the country and have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, sort of like an autograph, but croupier right, and how's that for DNA evidence? Just, not the kind you're looking for, but it did help one hundred and forty seven years post mortem lab studies were done on Edgar's hair. Funny enough. The scientists didn't start out looking for evidence of murder. The hair was steady to see if pose morbid. Poetic Tone was the result of pollutants from gas-lamps poisoning his system, so maybe writing all poetry would finally pay off with justice. The scientist Professor Stephen Moco didn't find any. Impose hair different from those that were found in other people from that era, so that study was a bust. However, the hair analysis wasn't for nothing. Chemicals and pollutants found impose hair could now be analyzed to see if they corroborated any theories on his death, for example pose, delirium and hallucinations could have been the result of mercury poisoning. But is mercury levels though high? We're well below an amount that would have affected him. The also found low levels of lead across various hair samples, and this is where it gets interesting. Because if Edgar had truly been alcoholic or even regular drinker, the amount of lead found in his hair would have been very high so over one hundred fifty years later. We know that snodgrass lied for his cause and Edgar Allan Poe did not drink himself to death. The other post post mortem analysis done on posed corpse is a bit more speculative, but an interesting theory to consider impose body was exumed twenty six years after. After his death that's in eighteen, seventy, five to be reburied in grave, more befitting of a legendary writer newspaper accounts of the story, mentioned onlookers, thrilled and disgusted at the site of posed brain preserved in his skull. George, W spence the Sexton, who directed the exclamation, was quoted in the Saint Louis, republican newspaper, describing it as his brain rattled around inside the skull, just like a lump of mud. What imagery, but here's the thing. Brains are one of the first body parts to brought and liquefy to a pudding like consistency after death. which doesn't line up with the hard shrunken mass reported in the papers, so that thing is head wasn't his brain. Lift, it was it would have been slashing, not rattling hitting the skull. What was impose head in two thousand six Poe researcher Matthew Pearl proposed the theory that Poe may have had a brain tumor according to Pearl certain types of brain tumors calcified over time, which would have explained the rattling mass in. Post, skull. It also explains the delusions, forgetfulness and incoherence. Poe exhibited in his last two weeks alive when it certainly makes sense. But as Pearl, himself said just because Poe may have had a brain. Tumor doesn't mean that's what killed him. Especially when you take into account, the testimony of post physician Dr Moran. Confirming longstanding theories of foul play, so let's look more deeply into the circumstances surrounding posed death. The greatest witness we have to pose. Final days was his attending physician. Dr John Joseph Moran. No one was allowed to visit PLO in the hospital, so he was one of the few people who saw the state that Poe is in shortly after Edgar's death Dr Moran answered a letter from Maria Clem describing the poets days. The letter is several pages long, but here's a piece of his description. When brought to the hospital, he was unconscious of his condition who brought him or with whom he had been associated. remained in this condition from five o'clock in the afternoon, the hour of his mission until three the next morning. This was on the third October this lines up with being drugged and beaten up as well as several diseases, Paul could have contracted such as syphilis, epilepsy or cholera later, Moran mentioned pose repeated calling out reynolds. And then a change of symptoms to the state, succeeded Truro the limbs, and at first busy, but not violent or active delirium constant talking. And Vacant Converse with spectral imaginary objects on the walls. His face was Pale and his whole person drenched in perspiration. We were unable to induce tranquility before the second day after his admission. Some people have read the hallucinations to be rabies, but Pollak the telltale fear of water rabies patients have it sounds is edgar was extremely traumatized, and possibly suffering from a head injury indeed, and over twenty years later, when Poe had achieved true posthumous fame Dr Moran began giving lectures Morand traveled the country talking about Edgar Allan Poe's last days for thirteen years for eighteen, seventy, five to eighteen, Eighty, eight when Dr Moran himself died. As I, said griswold biography was quite offensive to this great man. As his attending physician. I can assure you that Paul did not have the slightest voter of liquor on his breath or person. And even when offered Brandy, he refused Dr Miran speeches. The crowds. He was a man of temperance. So, how did he die? Edgar. Allan Poe was mugged and robbed beaten to the point where barely stabbed. Passed away from injuries. What a loss it was! In, my care Edgar Allan Poe gave beautiful speeches showing the utmost interest in poetic language. Poll told me language cannot tell the gushing well. That's swell sways and sweeps tempest like over me signaling alarm.

"I being there was no evidence of hydrophobia meaning meaning those afflicted with rabies develop a fear of water and pose reported to have been drinking water at the hospital until his death. The second can't kink is there was no evidence of an animal bite. Still at the time of the Article's publication Jeff terim curator of the Poe House Museum in Baltimore. More agreed with Benitez's diagnosis. This is the first time since Poe died that a medical person looked at posed death without any preconceived notions. Russian's Jerome told the Chicago Tribune in October of Nineteen ninety-six. If he was Edgar Allan Poe. He thinks Oh yeah drugs. Alcohol recall and that would influence his decision. Dr Bennett says had no agenda noma seven brain tumor one of the most recent theories about posed death suggests that the author succumbed to a brain tumor which influenced his behavior before his death. When Pou died? He was buried rather unceremoniously in an unmarked grave in a Baltimore graveyard. twenty-six years later statue was bill honoring Po near the Graveyard's entrance pose coffin was dug up and his remains exhumed in order to be moved to the new place of honor but more than two decades of buried decay had not been Kinda post coffin or the corpse within it and the coffin fell apart as workers. I tried to move it from one part of the graveyard to another little remained of post body but one worker dinner mark on a strange feature of posts goal. Oh amass rolling around inside newspapers of the day claim that the clump was post brain shriveled yet intact after after almost three decades the ground. We apparently know today that the mask could not be posed brain which is one of the first parts of the body to rot. What after death? This is in fact something I did not know nor did I need to know. But that's beside the point. Mattie Pearl an American author who wrote a novel about posed death was nonetheless intrigued by this club. He contacted a forensic pathologist who told him down that while the clump couldn't be a brain. It could be a brain tumor which can calcified after dead into a hard mass. That would make sense since then it would. Radically speaking medically speaking according to sumter Pearl isn't the only person to believe. Po suffered from brain tumor. A New York. Physician once told Po that he had a lesion on his brain that caused his adverse reactions to alcohol. All of that adds up to me. Sounds uh-huh legit. I'm like in theory number seven. I'll keep that in mind okay. Theory number eight the flu a far less sinister theory suggests suggests that poll merely had the flu which might have turned into deadly pneumonia on his deathbed in the days. Leading up to pose departure from Richmond. The author visited a physician complaining of illness his last night in town. He was very sick in a soon to be wife noted that he had a weak pulse a fever and she didn't think that he should take journey to Philadelphia. He visited a doctor and the doctor also told him not travel aval that he was too sick. According to newspaper reports from the time it was raining in Baltimore when Paul was there which could explain why poem found in close not his own the cold and the rain could have exacerbated the flu he already had and maybe that eventually led led to pneumonia. The high fever might account for his loose nations and confusion. Okay also sounds like an acceptable theory. ooh True but then we have theory number nine murder a likely suspect in his two thousand book. Midnight dreary the mysterious death of Edgar Allan Poe author John Evangelist Walsh Presencia. Another theory about Poe's death that Po was murdered by the brothers of his wealthy fiance elmira Shelton you know the soon to be wife mentioned in the flu theory. That girl using evidence from newspapers letters and Memoirs Walsh argues accuse that Poe actually made it to Philadelphia where he was ambushed. By Shelton's three brothers WHO warned PLO against marrying their sister frightened by the experience. PO DISGUISED HIMSELF IN NEW CLOTHES ACCOUNTING FOR IN. Walsh's mind his secondhand clothing and hid hid in Philadelphia for nearly a week before heading back to Richmond to Mary. Shelton Shelton's brothers intercepted Po in Baltimore. Walsh claims beat Po and forced him to drink whiskey which they knew would sin po into a deadly sickness weakness. Walsh theory has gained little traction. Among Po Historians War Book Reviewers Edwin J Barton in review for the journal American Literature Richard Called Walsh's story only plausible not wholly persuasive. Midnight Dreary is interesting and entertaining he concluded but its the value. To literary scholars is limited and Oblique. which feels a little harsh? If you ask me but shocker. They didn't so basically we will never know what happened to cause Edgar Allan Poe to die however I want to leave you with some weird facts that also surround his early demise this first. Let's talk about his cat. He had a quote most beloved tortoiseshell cat named Katharina according to reports Katharina died the same day edgar died first of all. I love that name for cat I know and second of all. Oh that's really mysterious right. It's like she knew second. His Obituary was written by his arch nemesis. Rufus his griswald. which can we just say that the villain name is totally bill named Rufus? griswold no question. He created an entire article all of such slander and liable that. It's kind of disgusting. I mean the man was dead. Griswald have you know decorum do you know. He was probably reasonable. Are Probably a Bar Barn. Barn could be either. Yeah yeah another really sad fact. Only seven people showed up to with funeral. Apparently Po didn't really make a lot of friends in his life. I mean they kinda checks with his stories you know yeah. Apparently he made a lot of people mad. He was Kinda creepy too. Yeah let's be the real. It's Kinda sad super said but filing co didn't let a thing like death get in the way of his writing and the eighteen sixties the medium lizzy dot published poetry. She claimed had been dictated to her by Poe's Ghost his fiancee Sarah Helen Whitman after his first wife's death but before his engagement to elmira Shelton and hired a medium to move in with her because she thought Post Spirit was trying to communicate with her to that is so spooky real spooky. I love it though. It will only be fitting for him. Honestly it really would yeah interesting. So yeah yeah what did he say. I don't know I think most theories have a little bit of merit to them. Yeah I imagine it's a little mix of probably all of them or a lot of them in reality. I could see that. Yeah really really interesting though. Yeah it's so crazy that there's so many different theories and there's just not one one explanation no and it's been so long we're still talking about it. it's crazy.
