MINI BIO:

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).

Vincent Price Facts
Won $32,000 in an appearance on the game show "The $64,000 Question" (1955).

In 1964, at the request of a personal friend, he narrated a brief history of Tombstone, Arizona (titled, "Tombstone, The Town Too Tough To Die"), for use in the diorama at the site of the O.K. Corral gunfight. He reportedly recorded the 20-minute piece in a single take at a recording studio in Hollywood, and when asked about his fee, asked for his pal, the owner of the exhibit at the time, to buy him lunch. Price never visited Tombstone but his narration is still used in the diorama.

Charlton Heston starred in The Omega Man (1971) and Will Smith starred in _I Am Legend, the remakes of Price's The Last Man on Earth (1964). Prior to this, Heston and Price worked together in The Ten Commandments (1956).
