H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Hound’ Read By Roddy McDowall (1962)

H.P. Lovecraft - The Hound - Roddy McDowall
I have to file this Halloween treat under the ‘Why didn’t I know about this record my entire life?’ category. As I was investigating another legendary horror actor who had a couple of LP’s filled with ghost stories I was lucky enough to run across this YouTube video uploaded by David Longhorn featuring Roddy McDowall reading H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘The Hound’!

  1. Yeah, thankfully it’s only for a little over a minute…still…very odd. I guess it’s a digital issue during the upload?

  2. Glad you liked it, RetroArt! I was pretty shocked by learning of its existence to say the least…maybe we need to keep our eyes on E*Bay? :)
