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).
