Subject: RE: Any songs on The Witchfinder General?
Thank you Joe.

In the USA the film was retitled after the Edgar Allan Poe poem The Conqueror Worm, even though there are no worms in the film. It was clearly an effort to capitalize on the name of Vincent Price and sell it as another of the Edgar Allan Poe films that came into vogue following the success of Roger Corman's The House of Usher (1960).
