Description

"Price emerges as one of his most complex characters in this entertaining and touching biography," observed The New York Times of Vincent Price: A Daughter's Biography. In this candid and heartfelt biography, Victoria Price traces her father's 65-year career from his radio days to his movie, Broadway, and television performances. A thorough and uniquely intimate look at the life of a legendary actor, the book also recaptures Price's many other roles, which included art historian, gourmet chef, and loving father. Since his death in 1993, Price's stature as a Hollywood icon has grown. Famed for his participation in such unforgettable horror films as House of Wax and The Fly, he also appeared in classic movies such as Laura and The Song of Bernadette as well as a variety of TV shows, from Batman and The Muppet Show to Mystery! His passion for art and enthusiasm for sharing his collections helped popularize the visual arts in the United States, and his zest for good food shines through in his bestselling cookbooks. This fascinating biography portrays a true Renaissance man whose larger-than-life presence filled his child's life with wonder. Bonus features include a never-before-published essay by Price, a Foreword by director Roger Corman, and 32 pages of black-and-white photographs.
