Fighting over an inheritance, one Pyncheon brother frames the other for murder.
Comments by Actor / Writer Roy C. PetersonThe thing I best like about this movie is the adaptation from the Salem Witch Trials that Nathaniel Hawthorne made in writing the story. The character played by Vincent Price is Clifford Pyncheon. In the story a curse is placed upon him and comes true twenty five years later at the end of the movie. The true history version is as follows:From Witchcraft at Salem. Chadwick Hansen, Mentor (NY, NY: 1969). P 167.... At the gallows the Reverend Nicholas Noyes called on Sarah Good to confess, telling her she was a Witch and she knew she was a Witch. Her reply is justly famous. "You are a liar," she told him. "I am no more a Witch than you are a Wizard, and if you take away my life God will give you blood to drink.".... But tradition has it that twenty-five years later, when Nicholas Noyes lay dying, he choked upon the blood that poured copiously from his mouth.....This is, of course, the incident Hawthorne adapted for The House of the Seven Gables.This is of special interest to me because, on my mother's side, I'm a direct descendant of Timothy Noyes, the brother of Nicholas, who I call Uncle Nick. I never told any of my lady friends from Salem MA about this, because they probably would have castrated me.
