Legendary actor, Vincent Price, was born Vincent Leonard Price Jr. on May 27, 1911 in St. Louis, MO. Price appeared in over 95 film and TV roles. His best known films include The Song of Bernadette (1943), Leave Her to Heaven (1945), House of Wax (1953), The Fly (1958), The Tingler (1959), House on Haunted Hill (1959), House of Usher (1960), Pit and the Pendulum (1961), Tower of London (1962), The Raven (1963), and The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971). Price also appeared as the villain Egghead on seven episodes of the popular TV series Batman from 1966 to 1967. Price died at the age of 82 on Oct 25, 1993 in Los Angeles, CA and was cremated and his ashes scattered at sea off Point Dume in Southern CA.
Handsome but faintly shifty-looking, Vincent Price's slight sneer got him cast in some good forties roles as untrustworthy associates. But he was never quite a top-of-the-cast man until he settled into horror films and became known as the 'Master of Menace'. Price was also a cookery and art expert. He was married to actress Coral Browne (third wife) from 1974-1991).(Source: available at Amazon Quinlan's Film Stars).
