Tribute Video: Remembering Vincent Price





It’s hard to believe that the iconic Vincent Price would have been 100 years old next week (he was born May 27, 1911), and it’s even harder to believe that it’s been almost 18 years since we had to say goodbye to the beloved actor.

This week the Vincentennial Celebration began in Vincent’s hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, and will be running every day through May 28th. The festival is being held to celebrate Vincent’s cinematic achievements as well as his personal passion for the creative arts. In addition to over 20 different screenings of Vincent’s various film performances, there will also be Q&A sessions with those who knew him best along with an art gallery exhibition celebrating both the actor and his love for art.

Tribute Video: Remembering Vincent Price

This coming Monday, May 23rd, Dread Central will be giving our readers two very different looks at one of most prolific presences that ever graced the big screen (or little screen for that matter) as we recently had the opportunity to sit down and chat with both legendary writer/director/producer Roger Corman and Victoria Price, Vincent’s daughter.

Before we release the interviews on Monday, however, we wanted to take a look back at Vincent’s career in film and on television with a video tribute put together by our own Brian Dreads. The video highlights his most iconic roles in film as well as some of his hilarious television appearances over the years. You may want to keep a Kleenex close, too (this writer needed one!).

Enjoy our video tribute to the one and only Vincent Price below, and make sure to check back on Monday when we post our interviews in tribute to Vincent’s 100th birthday next week.

Modern horror just doesn't have leading men like this. That voice. That face. An absolute legend.

It really doesn't, not like Price (or Karloff, Lugosi, Cushing and Lee). Actors who brought their A game and elavate a medicore script to greatness or at least make some of the most unwatchable junk at least tolerable

An nice video. Thanks! Not to self-promote or anything but, not knowing this was his 100th birthday coming up, my Vincent Price rod puppet (and Alfred Hitchock) are on display at the Walker Art Museum in Minneapolis this weekend as part of Puppet Cinema. Kind of a neat concidence.

Price was brilliant. Happily we do still have Jeffery Combs and Bruce Campbell.

Great video, VP will always be the king of horror. It would be great to see more of his movies given a nice transfer and HD release.

Just seeing that short clip of Last Man On Earth makes me want to punch Will Smith in the face even more than ever.
