    Many will disagree with me, but two of my favorites are his American-International projects: "The Raven" (Roger Corman!) and "Comedy of Terrors", both co-starring Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff, all three chewing the scenery and having a grand old time. Jack Nicholson in "Raven" is an added bonus.

    I don’t think I’ve seen him turn in a bad performance - a real star (in the true sense of the word) and gent.

    One of the Greats! From comedy (Champagne for Caesar +), drama (Laura +), and horror. He could do everything. My introduction was House on Haunted Hill. I followed through everything after. Then back.

    Love the Vincent. Watched all the Poe movies this summer. He was so great even when he was hamming it up.

    Masque of the Red Death and Abominable Dr. Phibes are probably my favorites, but he made so many great movies!!!!!!

    My cousin used to be neighbors with him in Malibu and said he was a very cool guy, very nice and approachable.

    There’s an accountant in the city where I live that I serve as a waiter from time to time that sounds an awful lot like Mr.Price. I really want him to do some kind of narration for a movie.

    Despite the humor in The Raven, it does feature a great wizard battle between Price's character and Karloff's.

    Vincent Price is the star of my favorite movie: Dr. Goldfoot & The Bikini Machine. He looks like he was having fun during the movie, although he mentioned in an interview that it was originally supposed to be musical but they cut out all of the music.

    I agree. Although a bit silly, I liked his portrayal of Egghead (he ranks just below my favorite: Louie The Lilac). A while ago Egghead was featured in a Batman comic intended for kids. They gave the following as his real name: Edgar Heed.

    My favorite movie of his: The Tingler.



    The hand coming out of the colorized blood-filled bathtub is one of the greatest b-movie horror scenes ever!

    I like all his pre horror films but I think his true calling was the horror genre, fun stuff!

    How could anyone not like Vincent Price? That's just wrong!

    I don't remember where I read this, but a reviewer or fan asked "Has anyone EVERY watched a Vincent Price movie and said 'yeah this movie is ok, but it would be better if it had less Vincent Price' ."
