Vincent Price from the Author: Victoria Price. Since his death in 1993, Vincent Price’s legacy as a Hollywood legend has only grown in stature. His lengthy and distinguished career—as the voice of The Saint on the radio; as an actor in such unforgettable horror films as House of Wax and The Fly, in classic movies such as Laura and The Song of Bernadette, and on popular TV shows such as Batman and The Brady Bunch; and as a star on the Broadway stage—spanned sixty-five years. In addition to being an icon of stage and screen, Price was an art historian and collector who did much to popularize the visual arts in the United States, as well as a gourmet chef and author of bestselling cookbooks. Widely revered for his elegance and erudition, this Renaissance man left his mark on many areas of American culture during the twentieth century. Vincent Price was also a loving father to his daughter Victoria, who was born shortly before he turned fifty-one, at the height of his popularity. Though the star’s busy film schedule took him in and out of his young daughter’s life, he was always a larger-than-life presence and, simply, her father. The deep bond between father and daughter managed to survive the machinations of Price’s third wife, the elegant British actress Coral Browne, who resented the close relationship between Price and his children and grandchildren. After Browne’s death, Price and his daughter spent over a year taping conversations that would form the basis of this compelling biography-cum-memoir. In writing about the father she adored, Victoria Price reveals a man complex, human, and humorous. An actor of range, less than one-third of the movies in which he appeared were in the horror genre. As a pre-war anti-Nazi sympathizer, he was greylisted during the Red Scare of the 1950s until, in a desperate gesture, he signed a secret oath that saved his career. His passion for the arts gave him a second life as a savvy columnist and museum founder, even as his films were featured in drive-ins nationwide. And through it all, Vincent Price’s professionalism, grace under pressure, and tongue-in-cheek humor earned him lifelong friendships among his peers and generation after generation of loyal fans. Victoria Price’s account of her father is one of candor and honesty; both his passionate and charismatic public persona and his conflicted inner life are treated with curiosity and understanding. Vincent Price: A Daughter’s Biography is, in short, the thorough—and uniquely intimate—life of a legend. For more information about Vincent Price, please visit vincentprice.com.

Vincent Price from the Author: Denis Meikle. Price's early films included such film noir classics as "Laura (1944) and "Leave Her to Heaven (1945), but it was the release of "House of Wax in 1953 that established the actor as the silky-voiced master of menace. The late fifties saw the arrival of an extraordinary cycle of gimmick-driven films produced and directed by showman extraordinary William Castle. Price starred for Castle in "House of Haunted Hill (1958) and "The Tingler (1959)--completing with cinema seats in certain theaters wired up to simulate the effect of the movie monster's electrical attacks. Denis Meikle's judicious and acute survey of Price's career takes in the low as well as the high points. Meikle paints rounded portrait of a supremely gifted actor, who carved himself a unique niche in film history. Vincent Price also includes over 120 stills, including scores of previously unseen images.
