Story involves rum running, accidental murder and a frame-up. A detective tries to unravel the strange circumstances surrounding the death of a young actress. Edgar Allan Poe's three tales of Paris crime-solver C. Auguste Dupin are considered the first detective stories. Based on the unsolved murder of a minor New York celebrity named Mary Rogers, "Marie Roget" was a thinly fictionalized essay on the facts of that case and the newspapers' theories about it. How thinly fictionalized was it?
Poe even added footnotes to remind readers that he was actually talking about Mary Rogers! There are plenty of colorful theories about why Poe came up with such a vague, confusing solution to the mystery, but he probably just didn't want to be proved wrong if the real crime was ever solved. Any "Marie Roget" movie true to the original material would attract mostly scholars, literary buffs and insomniacs, but fortunately this film throws in elements from other Poe stories to liven things up.
It also has Dupin do something a bit more exciting than sit in an armchair and deliver a lecture. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. Full Cast and Crew. Release Dates.
