Fascinating portrait of a beloved cinema HERO!
29 May 2006 | by CoventrySee all my reviews

Being a big,...HUGE fan of the late Vincent Price, I caught myself staring at this biography with my eyes and mouth wide open most of the time! This amazing cinema icon, theater legend and family man lived such a rich & well-filled life and remains, years after his death, worshiped by his relatives (naturally), friends, co-workers and everybody who ever got into contact with him. Most of us simply know Price as the always petrifying horror villain who starred in many genre classics ("Masque of the Red Death", "The Abominable Dr. Phibes", "House of Wax", "Witchfinder General", "House on Haunted Hill"...), but this portrait gives more and deeper insight on the friendly and warm-hearted man behind the scary voice and profound charisma. People such as the eminent biographer Lucy Chase Williams as well as Price's own daughter Victioria inform how he got obsessed with different types of art at a very young age and how he constantly pursued his dreams, for example by traveling to Europe all by himself. Particularly fascinating was to find out about stuff relevant to his career, like how and why he gradually opted to always play the "bad guy" in his movies or how he continuously managed to attract new fans by making clever and versatile career choices. It's really obvious that some of the interviewed people, like Dennis Hopper and Roddy McDowell – not exactly small actors themselves, had enormous respect for Vincent Price and considered him one of the most important people they ever worked with. The biography covers all the milestones in Price's career and life and features beautiful photographs of him on film sets or on family affairs. It also shows brief parts of some of Price's most memorable movies, horror or non-horror, like "Laura", "Dragonwyck", "The Fly" and many more. What an amazing man! I worship him!!
