Re: Is anybody a fan of Vincent Price? by geordiegirl on 17 March 2009 1:41pm
 
Oh yes, haven't seen all of his films, but LOVED the one about the drama critics murdered in Shakespearean ways, butchered & remains put in a pie which VP then ate, etc.

What WAS its name? (And don't tell me it was Christopher Lee, that role was just SO Vincent Price...)

Yes,Linda,be reassured it WAS Vincent Price,the king of the horror movie genre.
"THEATER OF BLOOD" (1973)--(American spelling)--with American Vincent Price and a fantastic cast of nearly all BRITISH actors and actresses.
Directed by British film director Douglas Hickox,who also directed "ENTERTAINING MR.SLOANE (1969) and ZULU DAWN (1979).

I liked the chilling part he had at the end of Michael Jackson's "THRILLER",which he recorded in only 1 take,in about 20 minutes.

Oh yes Linda, and wasn't the chap who had his 'babies' (poodles) cooked in a pie played by Robert Morley?

Kazzzz, I challenge you to resurrect the 47 previous threads where I have declared my eternal admiration for the "Big V" ;)

In "Theatre of Blood" Vincent bakes Robert Morley's poodles into a pie and forces him to eat it! Makes Sweeney Todd look like a saint.

Although Vincent is largely remembered for his horror movies, he had some great roles in earlier films like "Laura" and "Dragonwyck." He was hilarious in "His Kind of Woman" and "Champagne for Caesar".

Oh, have you noticed how often he'll refer to a female co-star as "my dear" in his movies? Charming! ;)

Yes, great movie, great actor? R. Morley was no slouch at acting, Anne, you will remember.

(Funny story: he often played crusty old buffers & colonels, so on the strength of this he was sometimes invited to Conservative Ladies Luncheon Clubs to speak. He'd do most things legal for money - like his son Sheridan - and it was only when he'd trousered the fee & given his speech the Ladies realised he was about as Conservatively-inclined as Tony Benn)
