Lovies, what could be better than a little photo tribute to the 20th century’s leading man of horror (and TYoH secret crush), Mr. Vincent Price? This 6’4 star of horror classics such as House on Haunted Hill and The Raven appeared in nearly 200 films and lent his distinctive voice to everything from radio serials and Micheal Jackson’s Thriller to the O.K. Corral exhibit in Tombstone, Arizona. When not thrilling horror fans, the always-urbane Price studied Art History at Yale, starred in cooking programs, and founded the Vincent Price Gallery in Los Angeles. The stories of this fascinating pillar of horror history can (and have) filled several books, so I’ll just let this gallery of 60 years of the legendary Mr. Price speak for itself. Enjoy!
“Do you ever rub your eyes and suddenly find you’re awake and not asleep, as you’d grown to suspect you were?” -Vincent L. Price
Additional Price galleries can be found on Greggory’s Shock Theater, The Red List, and A Certain Cinema.

OMG! I LOVE IT! Vincent Price Is MY MAN! Always And Forever, Fo SHO!!!
He is welcome to come and haunt TYoH anytime!
He was really exceptional.
Reblogged this on "You Jivin' Me, Turkey?" and commented:
I Couldn’t Help Myself, I Simply HAD HAD HAD To Reblog This One!
Absolutely PRICE-less!!! 😉
Aaaand I am totally stealing that joke. Kudos, darling! 🙂
Always happy to please, 1jaded1. 🙂
I love Vincent Price, but it bugs me when people call him a Hammer Horror star because Vincent never appeared in a single Hammer film, uinlike his occasional co-stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee who were Hammer’s finest double act.
I don’t know this for a fact, but I have heard that Price’s contract with AIP (American International Pictures) kept him from doing any Hammer Horror, as he was restricted from taking roles in horror films by other studios.
I didn’t know that, it would certainly explain a lot as I’m sure Hammer would have loved a bankable American star and in the few films he made with Lee and evn fewer with Cushing there always was a great chemistry
Still love hearing his voice
There are a number of old radio shows he did that are free to stream online or have been uploaded to youtube. Excellent bedtime listening, in my opinion.
I wonder if he ever double crossed someone so they had to say: That’s low, Price.
Prolly not. My world is better than the real one.
As always, darling, your questions cut right to the heart of the topic at hand.
Or whatever the opposite of that would be.
They don’t make ’em like that anymore. Actually, they didn’t really make ’em like that then either. He’s one of a kind.
An original, certainly.
Love all the photos! I don’t know that I’d actually seen photos of him as a young man. Yay!
He was quite handsome, I think. Also, science has proven that chicks dig beards.
Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog (De Ultieme Hallucinatie)… I’m glad I came across yours this way, it’s so deliciously spooky! And this photo collection is really priceless! Sorry, I had to say it 😉
Touché, Lia. Thanks for stopping by – come visit any time! 😉
Has there been anyone close to reaching Vincent’s skill and status? I say close, because no one could ever surpass the ol’ boy! And close is probably reaching too.
Aww, thanks for the repost, Juliette! 🙂
