Richard L. Bare - The Oval Portrait (1934)
The Oval Portrait (1934), dir. Richard L. Bare
Bare, who went on direct episodes of "The Twilight Zone," "Green Acres," "Alias Smith and Jones" and "Petticoat Junction," delivers a moody, stylish adaptation of an Edgar Allan Poe short story involving an artist so consumed with painting a portrait of his beloved that he doesn't notice her dying until it's far too late. Shot as a silent film, but with orchestral accompaniment, it's a solidly entertaining work. (18 minutes, 29 seconds)
