100 Years of Vincent Price

Tomorrow (day after tomorrow for those living in the US/Canada), will be the 100th birthday of the most beloved horror icon of them all - Vincent Price.

He was born on May 27th, 1911.




DreadCentral has a couple of articles dedicated to the icon -


A video remembering him - http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/445...-vincent-price

Roger Corman reminiscing him - http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/446...nt-price-years

His daughter Victoria Price talks - http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/446...-legend-father

The Vincentennial Celebration currently underway in St. Louis - http://www.cinemastlouis.org/vincentennial

And those of you living in the Los Angeles area can attend a special screening of his 1953 classic House of Wax, which is a fundraising event. Proceeds will be donated to the Vincent Price Art Museum. You can check the details of this event in the Victoria Price link.

I need not elaborate on the great man's contribution to our genre. All I can say is, he might have gone 18 years ago, but he still lives within each and every horror fan's heart.

Long live Vincent Price!
