Datebook: May 27 – Vincent Price turns 100

leave a comment »

Vincent Price was born on May 27, 1911 (and died October 25, 1993). He was an American actor, best known for his distinctive voice and serio-comic attitude in a series of horror films made in the later part of his career. Some notable films include “The Keys to the Kingdom,” “Abbot and Costello Meet Frankenstein,” “The Thee Musketeers,” “The Fly,” “House on Haunted Hill,” “Nefertiti, Queen of the Nile,” “Edward Scissorhands,” and… of course… “Michael Jackson’s Thriller.” The list, however, is nearly endless. There is little doubt that Price’s contribution to cinema was substantial and unique. Click here to see his filmography.
