Vincent Price

One of classic Hollywood's most famous scary men, Vincent Price played a few straight roles during his career but made a name for himself in classic mysteries and thrillers throughout the 1940's, 50's and 60's.


Price played Shelby Carpenter in Otto Preminger's masterful film-noir crime mystery, LAURA (1944) featuring Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Clifton Webb, and Judith Anderson. It received five Oscar nominations and took home a statuette for its black-and-white cinematography.

Possibly the most popular of the 1950's 3-D films, THE HOUSE OF WAX (1953) featured Price as Professor Henry Jarrod, a wheelchair-bound wax sculptor who gets a little help from human models. This fantastic chiller is still good today, even if you aren't able to see it in 3-D.
