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.”

One of my favorite old-time horror actors
Thank you, Alyssa.
the facts on Vincent Price was amazing i met his daughter victoria nice lady but i did not get her book but iam planing on reading it keep up the happy haunts
How lucky that you got to meet Victoria. I am not surprised that she was nice, since her father seemed so nice as well. Not the first quality I look for, but I’m glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you for listening. I hope you continue.

You’re welcome, Theo.
Hmm, Ginger Snaps…I’m not familiar with those movies. I will look into them and consider it. Thank you for the idea.
