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 Quotes:

Amaryllis Trumbull: If my father chose to spend his hard-earned money in the collection of curious objects...
Waldo Trumbull: [interrupting] He did more than collect curious objects, madam, he also fathered one!


Frederick Loren: It was my wife's idea to have our guests come in funeral cars, her sense of humor is, shall we say, original? She's so amusing. I dreamed up the hearse, it's empty now but after a night in the House on Haunted Hill, who knows?


Shelby Carpenter: I don't know a lot about anything, but I know a little about practically everything.
