Happy Birthday to the master of menace, Vincent Price, who was born on this day in 1911.

price_stairsWhere does one even begin when talking about Price? House of Wax? Theater of Blood? House on Haunted Hill? Maybe Edward Scissorhands? How can we not mention his narration work on “Thriller”? OK, this could take a long time. And should maybe just move to a forum discussion.

What’s your favorite movie or television moment from Vincent? For me, it’s probably my earliest introductions to the man: when he appeared on the Muppet Show,

and of course when he guested on the “Hawaii Bound” episode of The Brady Bunch (i.e. “the one with the Tiki idol”).

It's all just pops and clicks within the vinyl groove I'm listening to. Music, movies, commercials, action figures, cassette tapes...anything that you left in your parents' attic when you moved. I want to talk about it.
