Vincent Price on Home Video

by Joseph Parra

He was American-born and the most well-mannered madman the movies ever saw.  He loved to scare the Hell out of everyone while winking an eye to tell us it was really all right.  Whether bearing Edgar Allan Poe's most dire messages or haunting houses or merrily inventing exploding robots or wooing Judith Anderson (while attempting to marry Gene Tierney), he entertained us with his quick wit and ghoulish, macabre sense of humor.  Starting in 1939 and up through 1992, he was the one, the only... Vincent Price!
Are you a big fan of the inimitable Mr. Price?  If you are - and if you're afraid you might have missed out on some of his chilling little Silver Screen offerings - then here's a list of those of his genre films that are presently available on videotape.  What do you have a taste for?  This list includes mystery, suspense, horror, fantasy, and science fiction.  That's quite a range of flavors to choose from!  So, eat hearty and drink deep!  (As well as being a talented actor and an art connoisseur, Vincent Price was also quite a gourmet cook, you know!)
