Apt spellcheck in your subject line, Blake. Should have been Vincent Priorat vs. Peter Loire.

Wished I thought of it. Good one.

Peter Lorre always seems to be contemplating a crime.

Saw it before and forgot how brilliant Peter Lorre is.

I could agree with you, but then we both would be wrong.

I had never seen that! Thank you!

They were obviously drinking wines from Francois' cellar.

A classic that gets posted every so often to various wine boards. But always a fun watch.

It’s from a 1962 film, Tales of Terror.

Specifically it is from the Cask of Amontillado portion.

Who walls up whom in the end? Or are they not the main characters?

Peter Lorre walls up Vincent Price. The story, one of 3 in the movie, is an amalgam of Poe's The Cask of Amontillado and The Black Cat. The link in post 13 has more plot details.
