Vincent Price

Birthname: Vincent Leonard Price Jr.

Born 27 May, 1911
St. Louis, Missouri
USA

Time of Death: 25 October 1993

Vincent Price had his on-screen debut in 1938 with the comedy "Service de Luxe" after having done some theatre work for a few years. Price has starred in many different kinds of films, but is most known for his horror movies. Early on he starred in horror movies like "Tower of London" (1939) (also starring Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff), and "The Invisible Man Returns" (1940), but it wasn't until about 15 years later that he really got a "horror star" status with the movie "House of Wax" (1953). In the late 50's he did lots of horror, like "The Fly" (1958), "House on Haunted Hill" (1959), "Tingler, The" (1959), "Return of the Fly" (1959) and "The Bat" (1959). In the 60's, he's most known for his Poe adaptations directed by Roger Corman, like "House of Usher" (1960), "Pit and the Pendulum" (1961), "Tales of Terror " (1962) and "Masque of the Red Death" (1964). In the 70's he continued doing several Poe adaptations, in addition to horror classic "The Abominable Dr. Phibes" (1971). During his career, he often starred alongside other horror stars, like Peter Lorre, Boris Karloff, Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. Because his voice was nearly as famous as his face, he did several narrator roles and voices, even for Disney in the 80's and early 90's. In 1990 he got a role in Tim Burton's "Edward Scissorhands". Vincent Price died three years later in Los Angeles of lung cancer.





My oppinion
Vincent Price is one of my favourite horror actors. Any movie, no matter how bad, is always watchable as long as Vincent stars in it. There's no doubt that he had a real talent for acting. His voice, facial expressions, and general looks and figure, all fits perfectly for a horror character. Especially his performance in "The Last Man on Earth" was great in my opinion, as he's on-screen almost the entire time of the movie, but it never becomes dull. Also the movies he's done with Roger Corman are very enjoyable. Vincent Price never got the attention he deserved as an actor, because he mostly starred within the horror genre, which has never really had a good "reputation", which is a shame, but for fans of the genre, he'll always be remembered as one of the greatest of all time!
R.I.P. Vincent Price!
