ABOUT VINCENT PRICE:
Since his death in 1993, Vincent Price's legacy as a Hollywood legend has only grown in stature. His lengthy and distinguished career included a number of iconic horror films which continue to be popular among horror fans across the world. He appeared on stage, television, and radio, and in more than 100 films. Price was an art historian and collector who did much to popularize the visual arts in the United States, as well as a gourmet chef and author of best-selling cookbooks. Widely revered for his elegance and erudition, this Renaissance man left his mark on many areas of American culture during the twentieth century.
He often worked with famed low-budget director Roger Corman, for whom he starred in a series of stylish gothic chillers loosely based on the stories of Edgar Allan Poe, including "House of Usher" (1960), "The Pit and the Pendulum" (1961), "The Raven" (1963), and "The Masque of the Red Death" (1964).
Vincent Price was also a loving father to his daughter Victoria, who was born shortly before he turned 51, at the height of his popularity. In the biography, she reveals a man complex, human, and humorous.
