By all accounts, horror actor Vincent Price was a lovely man who, while somewhat eccentric, seemed to have lived a fairly pleasant life. We will discuss him anyway, because he is such an important figure in horror history, and because Skyler suggested it at HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com. But don’t expect to be creeped out by this episode. Who is your favorite? Let us know on our Facebook page, Twitter @HalloweenHaunt, or HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.
You can learn more about Vincent on Wikipedia, of course, and even more of course on IMDb. There is a virtual exhibit about Mr. Price, too. One of these days, I think I’ll make it a point to visit the Vincent Price Art Museum in Monterey Park, CA, even though it looks bright and cheery (which is what I find scary, to tell you the truth). Oh–here’s the ad for Milton Bradley’s Shrunken Head Apple Sculpture kit. You’ll find it in very old comic books, as well. Our friends at Relic Radio often feature Vincent’s radio show, The Price of Fear, on their podcast called “The Horror.”
