   Born in St. Louis on May 27, 1911, iconic actor Vincent Price retained a special fondness for his place of origin, and that love was reciprocated with Vincentennial, a celebration of his 100th birthday in his hometown back in May of 2011 (for summary of all the Vincentennial activities go Here). One of the guests of honor at Vincentennial was Vincent Price’s daughter Victoria Price. Because of their close relationship and her access to his unpublished memoirs and letters, Victoria Price was able to provide a remarkably vivid account of her father’s public and private life in her essential book, Vincent Price, a Daughter’s Biography, originally published in 1999. .In 2011, her biography of her father was out of print. but now it’s been re-issued and Victoria will be in St. Louis this weekend (October 9th – 10th) for three special events.

Early Emmy Awards Marked by Bedlam … and Betty White

18 September 2015 3:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If there are any mishaps or technical glitches at Sunday’s Emmys, just remember: It’s better than it used to be.

On Feb. 9, 1953, Variety columnist Sheilah Graham noted: “Nothing much happened at the Emmy Awards, apart from the stage proscenium falling down and conking a violinist on the head, and the mike going out of order for 10 minutes, silencing (host) Art Linkletter.” A separate article referred to the evening as “bedlam,” because the waiters and kitchen staff at the new Statler Hotel in downtown L.A. weren’t concerned with keeping quiet. Variety said this fifth edition was the most ambitious from the Academy of TV Arts & Sciences, “and possibly also the noisiest.”

The TV Academy first announced plans for the Emmy Awards at the end of 1948, presenting four Emmys at the first banquet in January 1949. The evening was the culmination of back-to-back morning and afternoon panels and seminars at the Hollywood Athletic Club. »

As James Corden and Sting sing and “rap”, America needs to get used to a late-night landscape without Letterman.

12.52am Et

Oh, a segment dedicated to the times he’s blown stuff up: ok

12.51am Et

Is there something else? …

12.50am Et

I’ve got to admit: he’s been clever here. The jokes weren’t the sharpest at the start but he’s really let the show do the talking all night, dropping in clips that really communicate how much a part of Us »
